    Using Camera flash as flashlight?

    Advertisement



    Is there a program ( or setting ) to keep your camera flash on to use as a flashlight?
    One of my old Motorolla phones did it and it was a cool feature to have.
    Anyone know anything about this?

    no you cannot at this time...it might be an option down the line.

    For now most people use Blinkberry http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ends_free.html

    As red suggested I use blinkberry. Gives a good but of light and use it quite a few times a week. And its free which just makes it savage.

    I got the answer guys very easy. go to the video camera app and go to settings and turn on the flash. It stays on like a flashlight great trick.

    You have to understand that not everyone has the 4.3 OS so not everyone has the video camera. People with the 4.3 OS yes you can use that. People without 4.3 OS will have to use blinkberry until 4.3 OS is released for the masses.

    Still, considering the video camera in 4.3 can pull it off... how much longer till someone just creates an app that can flip the switch.... anyone? I'd even pay $5 or so for it.... Buller...?

    Hey guys,

    Do you think it is a good idea to have the flash bulb continuously turned on the whole time?

    Its an LED so shouldn't hurt it at all. Why would it be turned on the whole time? The whole time of what?
