    I just began to mess with the Droid I just received from my girlfriends dad and I noticed it makes some sort of clicking sound when the camera starts up. Is this normal or should I go to the verizon store?

    There are free camera apps available that make no sounds.

    There is another post on this and they suggested to silience it to remove all sounds (alarms, etc). I use my alarm clock so I couldn't do that.
    Another idea was an App, Silient Camera or something like that, but some said it didn't work. I've just left it for now.

    here's a few from a search for "camera"

    stop the sound Please !

    Silence camera sounds?

    Droid - Remove camera click/shutter sound

    Camera Focus Lock Sound

    okay... I just don't want to get back to work that's how I found all of these and there might be more... but I guess i should get back to work...

    I don't think there's a way to get rid of the sound that's not coming from the speaker--the physical shutter clicks--other than the tried and true not using it method. This also works on a drum set.

    I use Tasker to turn off the system sounds when the Camera app is running.

    Are you for real, or just being a wiseass? It's a digital camera; there is no physical shutter. The sound is only an effect.

    I recommend Vignette Demo for a silent camera app.

    When you first open the camera app, the camera makes some focusing noises. You can't silence that.

    As for the fake shutter sound, you can put the camera in silent or vibrate mode and there will be no noise.

    doesnt the clicking mean the thing is turning on. aka it WILL make the sound WHENEVER the camera becomes active. but only right when you turn it on, so who cares? it just clicks for less than a second.

    What gave me away? Some digital cameras actually do have physical shutters, believe it or not. I'm not sure about the Droid. Anyway, whatever that clicking sound is--shutter or focusing--I don't think it can be turned off.

    I think people are confused here...The OP is talking about the initial sound the camera makes when it opens, its the sound of the camera focusing..and no you can not turn that off.

    Other people are talking bout the fake shutter sound when you take a picture, the only way to turn off that sound is to put the phone on vibrate or silent or to use a camera app from the market.

    Oh, that quiet little "tink tink tink" when it focuses. I'd thought we were talking about the loud "click" when the stock app takes a pic. Don't mind me...
