    Default Camcorder question

    I have done some searching and can't find what I am looking for.

    I have had my X for a few weeks and am really getting to know it and enjoy it. I have an 11 month old and she is very curious about electronics, so anytime we take a pic or vid of her she rushes right over to us to play with the camera, phone, etc. My Canon VidCam is quiet and I can easily record her without her knowing... but I can't do that with X... it beeps every single time you begin recording! Does anyone know how I can possibly turn off the beep when using the camcorder? I know when using the camera itself the beep is for autofocus... but the camcorder doesn't autofocus the same way.

    Thanks! This will allow me to capture more video and easily upload for family to see.

    In the camcorder app...... go into settings and turn off the shutter sound. Same for the camera.

    If it were only that simple... I went through every setting and never saw anything about the shutter sound, which is why i posted the question.

    All I am seeing under Settings are as follows:

    Pic Resolution
    Vid Resolution
    Quick upload album
    Review Time
    Face Detection
    ISO equivalent sensitivity
    Exposure
    Shutter Animation

    None of those list anything about the beep.

    Thanks

    Okay here's what I found that people are doing. I guess the DX doesn't have an option to turn off the sound to the shutter....strange. This works if you're interested in doing it every time you use the cameras.
    Go to the Market and seach for AudioManager
    When you open the program you will have 6 volume options
    Alarm Vol
    Music Vol
    Alerts Vol
    Ringer Vol
    System Vol
    Voice call Vol
    If you turn the system volume down and the alert volume down you will not hear the shutter for the camera or camcorder.

    Thanks! That did it! Just needed to drop the System Vol down to 5 or 6 out of 15 and it worked. I will test it out tomorrow when she's awake.

    I guess the TBolt has the option.
