    Smile Re: Turning Digital Camera "snapshot" sound off?

    I'm also one of those "creepy" people who wants to turn off the shutter sound. Surprisingly, I don't want to take upskirt, stripper or locker-room photos, I just want to be able to take candids of friends when we're out without drawing unnecessary attention and interfering with the flow of conversation. I think the implication that wanting to turn off the shutter sound is "creepy" is pretty infantile. And to the folks that keep saying it's a privacy issue, I doubt it. If that was the case it'd be mandatory on DIGITAL CAMERAS too, but it's not. And let's face it, if you're out in public you've got no right to privacy anyway (see: London CCTV network and US DHS)

    I respectfully request that you, Ubergeek &/or Blackberry Ninja, assist us in this cause. I will reward you with praise, good vibrations and the finest Karma I can muster, not to mention the sum of $5 deposited into a PayPal account of your choice!


    Anyone else care to ante up a couple of bucks for the solution? Said solution would kill the sound for good but be reversible if need be. As earlier posters have said, perhaps replacing the sound file with a blank one would do the trick..?

    I just want to be able to take pictures of bizarre hair-dos without tipping people off. If that violates privacy, then I guess I'm creepy.

    I know with my old Razr there was a bit editor where you could go in and change just about anything, including turning off the camera sound. Now the BB is a bit more complicated, but I would assume the same idea would apply.

    look, try this...

    right when you are about to take the picture, cough or let loose a long loud fart.. and BAM! "who farted?" no one is even going to know you took a picture.

    haha, just playing. But yah, it is kind of weird how you cant disable the sound.

    that is odd.. even my old RAZR you could completely disable the sound or if you were feeling spontanious you could even make it do a monkey sound ... perfect for cubicle conversation... "was that a monkey?"... hahahahah ... prob the best sound file would be a silent file replaced in the directory of the orig file in the BB... the ol switcheroooo... I'm still a noob so i have no clue how...

    Yeah! I am actually trying to photo-blog my horrific life of a grad student. I am trying to take pictures while in class...and the flash sound is brutal. I just tried the headphones thing and that didn't work. My classmate just looked at me creepily when he heard the shutter and saw me pushing my phone into my leg...as I was preemptively trying to muffle any possible noise.

    There has to be a sound directory where I can delete this sound! (wap.pinstack.com)~
