Stealth shots with a camera phone? - 2/1/2013 9:22:07 PM

I'm not into expensive mobile phones or otherwise I wouldn't be asking this.

A few days ago someone may of been cheeky and took a photo of me. Nothing embrassing but i originally thought this person was texting. Mobile phones creates a fake shutter sound to confirm a photo is taken. I didn't hear one and that why I originally thought the person was texting.

My questions are:

1. Is it easy to disble the fake shutter speed sound?

2. Do you have to buy an app to do it?

3. Is it widely used?

I don't think you can disable the shutter sound on Blackberrys. Google that, I think it throws up results about a legal ruling to make it harder for peeping Toms to be discrete.

Which I wouldn't for a moment suggest that that's what you are actually up to.

I asked the same question on a camera forum and got some disturbing answers.

Most of the latest compact cameras and mobile phones has the option to turn off the artificial shutter sound. If not like the iphone, there is an option to download free apps to turn the fake shutter sound off.

The problem with a camera phone unlike a camera or camcorder. The phone user has no problem pretending to be texting or reading a message while taking the photo. The other problem with a camera phone is they have a fixed length lens and a small sensor. Another word the sneaky sod need to be in the target face to take the photograph.

With an iPhone, you just need the phone on silent or vibrate for there to be no sound. I was thinking I've never heard the shutter sound when I have taken pics but that's because my phone is permanently on silent

Apparently there was a law passed in Japan that required phones to make a noise when taking a photo because of the high number of pervs on public transport trying to get up-skirt shots of schoolgirls   I've no idea how widespread similar laws may be, but it makes sense that it manufacturers would disable silent photography - after all, is there really any legitimate need for it?

There is street photography but it requires a proper camera.

I always feel like a pervert when I press the top "sleep" button on the iPhone as it makes a little sound and I always fear unsuspecting people think I just took a photo.
