    Yea, I want to sneak into locker rooms and take pictures of naked people.

    Kidding.

    Seriously, it's annoying. Scares my dogs. Makes people look at me when I'm taking legitimate pictures. My Resound let me turn it off.

    Can you turn it off on the S3? Can't seem to find it.

    Thanks!

    On Verizon if you turn off the sound of on the home screen it turns off the clock.

    think some 3rd party camera apps have the option. i think its like law or something (maybe only in europe) that phones make a noise when u take a pic but dont think it affects 3rd party apps

    The option is there (at least on the AT&T version).

    Open the camera, tap the little gear icon (settings), scroll to the bottom of the settings list and you'll see the setting "Shutter sound." Tap it and select Off.

    You have to go in the camera settings and then scroll down. I did not see it at first either.

    Yup have to put the phone on silent or vibrate. This would annoy me as well if I didn't keep my phone on vibrate all the time.

    There is a program called Samsung GS3 Toolkit V3.0 by Mark Skippen that has an option to fix the camera click, among many other cool things.

    FWIW, Google removed the option from official source/os. It is at the carrier and OEMs decision to give the option to turn this on and place the proper coding back into play to allow it. This is because there is privacy laws and such that Google did this.

    Seems like Sprint is the only US carrier that has removed the option completely to disable the camera shutter sound.

    I don't have that option on my Verizon S3. However, I can turn off ALL sounds (ringer, notifications, etc.), and it will silent the camera.

    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)

    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..

    Can't you just go in and delete the camera click sound file off your phone? I have an AT&T S3 so I haven't had to try, but I did that on a Verizon phone a year or so ago and it worked great.

    If you root you can decompile the camera app remove the sound and recompile.

    Silent Camera is an option, but not a very good one. You lose the features of the S3 camera that make it unique. Also, the photo quality is not very good compared to the native camera app. But if you're desperate for a quiet camera, then you could give it a try.
