The main reason I want to mute my camera is for school purposes when I'm sitting in the library and I want to take photos of my work, or things the teacher wrote on the board in the classroom without distracting everybody with the loud shutter sound.

Not sure why people find this freaky... the camera sound is annoying at times.
Some examples, in addition to the OP's about taking pictures of notes/books in the library, include taking picture of a speaker, or maybe lecture notes during class...~SaMaster14

I also have a problem with the camera sound. I am neither a pervert, sexual deviant or stalker but I am willing to learn
Ok, All kidding aside...I used to have quick launch on my 9000 and I am pretty sure it had the camera mute there. I just purchased it today again for my 9900 and it is no longer there I also HATE that obnoxious noise!Wake me up in December

Just released SilentCam.
Make sure you read the description. It can not take large pictures and only take picture of the BB screen size. You can zoom in.
You can take upto 10 pictures at once and then automatically quit the app after finished taking the picture.

screen shots of the camera screen is a good idea lol but i have been using this for a while now and it works (phone vibrates instead) i got all the playground shots now (joke).

Those screenshot apps are not a substitute for camera shots. First, it still shows the camera buttons at the bottom of the screen. Second, it's only using the screen resolution, nothing better is possible.
I'm also tired of reading posts proclaiming it's illegal to mute the camera shutter. Geez, it comes as a standard option on many Android devices and there are plenty of mute apps for BB OS6 and earlier.

The whole "illegal" thing has to be hogwash. I know that on an iPhone if the silent switch is flipped that it does NOT make the shutter noise. I wish RIM would just give us the darn choice!
