    Can I turn the shutter sound down or off? I've looked through all the menues, searched this site, Nikon home, etc, but can't find anything. I find the shutter to be loud and disruptive.

    Thanks for your help.

    Uh...

    Perhaps a point & shoot is what you are in need of. You cannot turn off the sound of a mirror raising and lowering.

    I digress, is there a point and shoot camera model called a D90 other than the Nikon DSLR?

    On a DLSR, the sound you hear is from physical movement of the mirror and shutter curtains. It's not an electronic noise like on a Point and Shoot, so no, you can't turn it off or down.

    Fair enough question from anyone coming from a point and shoot really.

    The simple answer is no. As mentioned it's a mechanical sound, not an option to change/disable it like many point and shoot cameras.

    I guess you could surround the camera in noise dampening material... Or buy a D5000 or D300s with Quiet Mode.

    I guess i don't blame you for wanting it quieter. But no, there is no practical way to make it quieter.
