Yes I did know there's a silly sound avaliable.. Why on earth anyone would want it activated, lord only knows.. The sound I'm meaning is the mechanical shutter noise that becomes silent if needed!

No, you are confused.

Silent mode switches off:
1. All sounds played through the speakers.
2. The flash.
3. The AF assist light.

All these can be set separately too. The shutter sound is no different in silent mode to simply switching off the artificial sounds in the menu.

The X100 has an electronic leaf shutter which can barely be heard in a quiet room, and often not at all if there is any ambient noise.
