Turn off shutter sound when taking pictures

Hi, Is it possible to take off the shutter sound when I take a picture with my EOS Rebel T6?

Re: Turn off shutter sound when taking pictures

There is no way to turn off the shutter sound on any DSLR. The sound you hear is the actual sound of the reflex mirror and shutter in operation.


Cell phones and Point and Shoot cameras, don't have this hardware and are generally silent in operation. The "shutter sound" is artificially added, and can usually be turned off.
