If your phone won't let you switch off its annoying camera shutter sound, there are a couple of different methods to make your camera quiet anyway. Unfortunately they all require that you hack your phone first.
But there's a camera silencing method that works without hacking. CenRep101F8809 has been floating around on different mobile phone forums for a while, and it works on phones that have the file 101F8809.txt in the folder c:\private\10202be9 on your phone's internal memory.
The CenRep101F8809 method works on the Nokia 6110 Navigator, 6120 Classic, N73, N81, N82, N95, N95 8GB, E51, E66, and E71.
It won't work on newer phones like the N78, N79, or N85, because they use a different camera program. To switch off the camera sound on these phones you need to hack Symbian first and then use this ROMPatcher patch.
If the CenRep101F8809 method should work on your phone but doesn't, disable the warning tones in your silent profile and restart your phone. Now the camera sound should not sound in silent mode.
CenRep101F8809 needs to signed before you can install it, but it does not require a "strong" certificate. Any certificate will do, and you can even use Open Signed Online.
