I saw an old thread about this but rather than bump it I'm creating this new one.

I just found this out, and it's not a big deal but it comes in handy. You can silence the camera's shutter sound simply by flicking the ringer switch to silent. Great for snapping a quick pic of somebody dozing on the couch, mouth open, drool running down their cheek. Also great for taking a photo of animals when you don't want to disturb them. There are other more nefarious uses but those are not worth discussing.

I do this every time I want to use the camera. It's not that I want to be sneaky, I just hate the shutter noise. I mostly take photos of objects such as my 360 controller or food, so I don't want to bug people around me with annoying noises.

I wish it was built-in to the settings. Would be so much easier to have it permanently mute instead of having to turn it to mute and then unmute when you're finished.
