Back to A3000 shutter sound, if we can…

If the A3000 sound can't be disabled in settings/software, what are the solutions, then?

Pull camera apart and disconnect wires? Not so desirable while under warranty.

Anyone tried blocking the speaker holes? Blu-tack? Glue? Might be able to argue that it doesn't void the warranty?? but sounds less intrusive.

The A3000 shutter sound so loud and fake, it's a deal breaker for me. The advantage of the camera is how light it is in the hand, but the shutter sound shakes the whole camera so badly - taking a panorama is like trying to pan a vibrator. I can't see how the sound doesn't affect the stabilisation.

Any serious suggestions? Please…

Pity this didn't rate a mention in any of the reviews. It certainly puts the photographer front and centre in any situation. Hardly the quiet observer of any human event - my heart goes out to that photographer trying to shoot the funeral.
