Silencing the shutter shound on the Android HTC Magic?Oh, some things make me so angry.
Enforced shutter sounds on phones are one of them.
The HTC Magic Android phone has a loud and annoying shutter sounds that can't be turned off. I read that this is more and more common to prevent upskirt-style pictures etc being taken.
But, hang on... If I put my HTC Magic on silent mode, then the shutter is silent anyway.
So what's the point in forcing a shutter sound on normal mode?!
It just doesn't make any sense.
If you came here looking for a solution, then good luck. There seemed to be some camera apps in the Android Marketplace that claimed to silence shutter sounds when not on silent mode, but I have my doubts, and many only worked before more recent versions anyway, so I understand.
Browsing forums on this subject will just make you angry too - lots of self-righteous people explaining, patronisingly, why sounds are a good idea to prevent perverted pictures, and denying that there is any legitimate use of silent cameras.
In an art gallery, in a library, in a theatre during a performance, watching a friend's poetry recital, taking pictures of your food in a restaurant for review on your website, anywhere, frankly where you don't want to make a noise generally...
