Don't think you can soundproof a camera, unless one operates it in a vacuum.

There are products like the soundblimp or lenscoat body wrap to dampen or muffle the sound.

Alternatives include DIY boxes with any material which would serve as a muffler - high density cloth, dense closed-cell foam and so on. Simply wrapping a camera in thick towel also helps.

Check if your camera body has a 'silent' shooting mode, usually it will be a delayed mirror return arrangement, or an option in Live View.

Other options include choosing cameras with no mirror - P&S, compacts, prosumers and film rangefinders.
