    Camera flash as a Flashlight

    Advertisement



    Is there any way/hack to use the camera flash as a flashlight? I know on a previous phone of mine (Sanyo 5600), you could activate the flash off and on.

    Re: Camera flash as a Flashlight

    I've been wondering this also... I searched all around this forum and google, I found an application called "blinkberry" that people were using to accomplish this I think on the Pearl, unfortunately the program cannot be loaded onto the Curve (at least it wouldn't allow me to with App Loader) so before everyone starts suggesting Blinkberry, all my testing says it dosen't work on the Curve.

    Would be great to see an app do this for us, it's a terrific light

    Blink berry uses the led in the front of the pearl I think.
    You can't use the camera flash. Your sanyo could use its because it wasn't a real flash, just a led. The flash on the pearl is a real flash. There for it would get extremly got if you turned it on and left it on. It would probably burn out as well. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    that actually isn't true of the Curve... it's just a bright LED.

    anybody happen to know if any progress got made on this and if there's an app now that can do it?

    Blinkberry does work on Curve's. I have it on my 8300. It uses the LED on the topright corner, so the damn thing is multi-colored. Works okay in the PITCHBLACK, but not all that awesome.

    It shows the light staying on for video record mode on the new 4.5 OS (previously named 4.3) so the best chances of an app coming out that will allow this would be after the release.

    Yes.. with the adjustment of camera options comes more flash options as well. There is a WAY *ie technically possible to extend the flash duration based on camera shutter.. is its gonna happen before upgraded OS... NOPE.. lol

    OS 4.5 you can set the flash to on for video camera. It takes up a lotta juice and takes a lot of steps =/ but the brightness is unmatched. Except by the sun.

    OS 4.5 > Video Recorder > Options > Video Light > On
    Of all the things I lost, I miss my mind the most.
