    Default S3 Camera Shutter sound

    Has anyone figured out how to turn this sound off? I've looked everywhere I can think of. Thanks!

    The last I saw (it's been a while back, though) the manufacturers were required to add a camera sound when the shutter activates. Apparently it had something to do with concerns about surreptitious photography -- cell phone photos up skirts and under dressing room doors and such. That might be why you can't shut it off. Loading a custom ROM might allow you to silence or deselect the sound.

    Never really thought about that. Thanks for posting. I thought I was missing something.

    Camera ICS: has an option that allows you to turn the shutter sound off.
    Edit: you can also look through Turning camera shutter sound off (Turning camera shutter sound off)

    Yes, a third-party camera app might also work. The app notes for Camera ICS include a disclaimer that silencing the shutter might not work on all devices. The JB camera on my device also does not look like the one in your screenshots. My stock VZW S3 does not have the option to silence the shutter either.

    If you change your ringer setting to mute, it also silences the shutter noise.

    My S3 is set up with factory ROM and I just took a picture to try it out. Did not make a sound and I have not changed any of the camera settings.

    This.

    Just turn your volume to mute and it mutes the shutter sound.

    I'm now curious - is your phone running the MF1 build (4.1.2)? What does that final options screen look like - can you post a screenshot that shows the same section?

    Underway99,
    Oops, I was referring to the Camera ICS app.

    Sorry, should have been more specific - the stock Camera app doesn't have a setting to silence the shutter (at least, on Verizon it doesn't).

    Thanks for the clarification. You had me thinking I'd missed something.
