Focus Confirmation Noise--Can be shut off?
3 months ago

When I shoot birds on my back deck, I'm hiding in a window, very close to the birds who are just 10 to 20 feet away.  I notice, shooting with the SX 50, the sounds the camera makes sometimes scares them off.  I shut off all noises I could in the menu, but can not find a way to shut off the Auto focus confirmation sound.  Believe it or not, the birds are tuned to it, and make a bee line when they hear it--not always but often enough to miss some excellent shots.

It is starting to bother me--can anyone help?  Cheers
