Not sure about your GRD, but I set mine up so that the only noise is from the extension of the lens.

Otherwise silent and quick.

The Canon S90 lens extension, focus and shutter sound is surprisingly more quiet than the GRD III.  The GRD III makes a peculiar wsshhht noise as the lens extends, and the shutter sound is pronounced compared with even the Canon S90.  This disappointed me, given that the Ricoh 'legend' is built around speed and discretion.  To think that a mass market (albeit high-end) compact from Canon could start, shoot and shut down faster and more quietly than a top-range Ricoh!
