    Is there any way to reduce the volume of the camera noises? Not sure why they make it so loud...

    Not sure you are able to. On most smartphones they make the camera noise loud, an unable to be changed. You have to remember the main reason behind many of these devices is for business, and many business people aren't out snapping secretive pictures. Unfortunately they set it at that level and don't allow the change, unless there is a 3rd party app that does it that I havent found

    I'm not trying to be secretive, it's just obnoxious/annoying. Well, it's better to use my regular camera anyway!

    This is true. I wont disagree that its annoying, just putting a little reasoning behind it.

    if you have your ringer turned to silent (the volume rocker bar all the way down) there's no camera shutter sound.

    That is a true statement.

    I just figured out that I could turn off the camera volume with the ringer volume control a few days ago. It came in particularly handy when I wanted to take an unflattering photo of my wife napping and post it on facebook. ;-)

    I'm using Blackdroid's UltimateDroid ROM and he removed the camera shutter sound altogether. I didn't expect it but I sure do appreciate it.

    I don't like the sound because i'm a hunter and if a animal comes by that i don't intend to shoot, i can take a picture of it with no camera sound.

    but, what about the sound of the camera turning on? that goofy squirrley noise - any turning that off?

    I think that's the focusing mechanism that makes that noise. No chance of stopping that at startup. That thing really makes a racket when I'm using a barcode scanner app.

    oh well, we gave it a shot. yeah, it DOES make a racket. I hit the camera by accident in a meeting and it turned on the camera (I was checking a text) and it sounded like a freight train.

    The 2 camera apps I downloaded Camera Magic and Vignette allow you to silence the shutter sound and you can turn auto-focus off so it takes the picture faster.
