It’s a bit odd that you cannot silence the shutter sound on your BlackBerry camera. Mute it, turn the volume all the way down — no native method will work. In a way it makes sense; after all, if you’re snapping a photo of an unwitting party, they might want to be made aware. On the other hand, we all have our desires to snap a spy shot here or there. There are apps in App World, including one I caught today. If you like to catch strangers in compromising positions, this might be worth the dollar. Strangely enough, Silent Camera might have never made it to the market if Congressman Peter King had his way. In 2009 he introduced legislation that would require all camera phones to emit an audible click when taking a photo. The bill died, however, and there hasn’t been much of a peep on the subject since then. Local jurisdictions might have their own regulations on camera phone clicking, though, so be aware. Silent Camera does what it advertises. When you snap a picture with it, you will hear no shutter sound. You can have it take up to 20 pictures with one take, too, so you’ll have a number of shots to choose from. That’s helpful if you want to stealthily capture an event as it unfolds. The pictures automatically save to your device or SD car when you quit the application. Here’s the catch, though: you can’t set the resolution. In fact, the resolution is pre-set to the resolution of your screen. If your screen is 480×360 pixels, as is the Bold 9700 and similar models, that’s the resolution of the picture you take through Silent Camera. Bold 9900 series users will get a bit of a larger picture area, at 640×480. Torch models will obviously get even higher resolution and larger pictures. If you want to snap your pictures in peace and quiet, you can get SIlent Camera for just a buck. Via BerryReview.
