The camera will beep when the autofocus locks on (achieves focus).

If you don't want the camera to beep at you, you can disable the beep in the camera's menu:

  1. Press the MENU button
  2. Use the < or > (arrow) keys to select the first tab
  3. Use the DOWN arrow key or the wheel to select the Beep item and press the SET button
  4. Use the UP or DOWN arrow keys or the wheel to select Off and press the SET button.
  5. Push the shutter button halfway to exit the menu. You're done.

If you want a copy of the manual, get it here (scroll down), or in a bazillion other places around the 'net.
