Hi. I've just bought a new phone. When using the camera, you can't turn the shutter sound off (and it beeps every few seconds to confirm that it is in focus). Its very annoying! After doing a bit of research, it turns out that this is on purpose. Apparently there is legislation being debated in the US to make shutter sounds mandatory (I believe it is called the 'Camera Phone Predator Alert Act'). And some other countries have already introduced similar rules. How come nobody is discussing this? While we all know who this legislation is aimed at, there are numerous occassions when a silent camera makes sense (plays, presentations, speeches, wedding ceremonies etc). Plus, if you are some sort of perve, you'll just start using a P & S, anyway, and given that rules like these often expand over time, its not that hard to imagine it encompassing cameras in the future. Maybe the reason the 5Diii seems to be getting delayed is because they are being fitted with an extra loud compulsory "beep" every time you focus the camera that you won't be able to turn off? I'm just surprised that people from the US, being the home of rights and freedom, are proposing this.
