    you'll need root to do this, if you don't you get an "insufficient permissions" when you try and change the file name.

    The camera volume is sent through the media stream. For as long as I can remember I've had a Tasker profile that puts the phone in "silent mode" while the camera's open, and then returns it to the previous volume as soon as I exit the app. This also solves the problem of notification sounds interrupting video recording.

    EDIT: Sorry, not the media volume. I use Silent Mode.

    This one's pretty simple -- a good place to start.

    1. Make sure you're not in beginner mode (which doesn't mean this is difficult!): go to "Preferences" > "UI" and uncheck "Beginner Mode".
    2. Create a new profile and choose "Application" as the first context. Select "Camera" (and "Camcorder", depending on your device).
    3. Then you need to add a "new task".
      * Tap the + to add a task, then choose "Variable". You'll use %OLDMEDIA as the "Name" and %VOLM as the "To" values.
      * Tap + again and choose "Audio Settings", then "Silent Mode". Set it as "On".
      * Hit the check mark to bring you back to the profiles screen
    4. Then add an "exit task" (by long pressing the task you just created). For this you'll just tap +, choose "Audio Settings" > "Media Volume". If you're not in beginner mode, you'll see looping blue arrows (looks like "refresh") in the upper right. Select that and then you can type in %OLDMEDIA under "Level".
    5. Hit the green checkmarks to get out of everything, and you've got it.

    Couldn't find it on the AT&T one, have to silence it before opening the app. Very annoying, it gets really awkward when the girls turn around and see me..
    It's definitely there on the AT&T version. In the camera click the gear (settings). If you notice, you'll see a white scroll-bar on the right which disappears. You'll see "Focus mode" at the bottom of the list, but there are more options below that. Just flick the list up and you'll find the hidden options. It's at the very bottom just above the Storage option.

    AWESOME! It works. Just to add extra clarity... after you choose "Variable" in step #3, you are presented with a set of options before you can enter "%OLDMEDIA" etc. You need to pick VARIABLE SET... then continue to entering "%OLDMEDIA etc.

    THANKS!!!! Solved the problem!

    Hate to say but it didn't work for me and my pebble blue 16gb Sprint version doesn't have the option to mute the shutter.

    Put phone in silent, or "permanently" disable the camera sound, which is easy for rooted devices. Get a root file explorer, go to /system/media/ui/audio and rename "Shutter.ogg" to "Shutter.ogg.disabled" or something like that. There are other sound files their for video camera sounds, focus, power on/off, and other UI functions. You can also change the phones normal sounds.

    Worked great. Thanks!

    On mine the path was /system/media/audio/ui...

    On the Telus branded S3, all you need to do is turn the ringtone down to vibrate / silent. You need to do this outside the camera app (or in pull-down menu, which you can actually access in all full-screen apps by swiping down from the edge)

    Man...this gets me every time

    The "ICS Camera+" app lets you turn off the sound, use the volume as a camera button, and has a number of tweaks that the native camera either doesn't have or doesn't do well. It's the camera the way it should have been implemented originally. That way you get a better camera and you don't have to remember to turn the volume back up. Win-win. Simple. No root. No fancy stuff.

    If you are rooted, the guide in the link below will enable the sound toggle in your camera app. Worked great for my Sprint Samsung E4GT / s2 and says it will work for the S3 as well.
