On my HTC One-X the Camera app can take videos or photos. When recording video you can turn the flash on to provide some illumination.
Is there a way of doing this while in the camera mode when composing a shot?
The other night I was in the garden in the pitch black trying to take some photos of some nocturnal animals. When in camera mode the viewfinder is also pitch black which made it very difficult to line up the photo. I ended up having to record a video, turn on the flash for some light and then take photos while the video was recording.
This is not ideal, and so I wondered if there is any way to get the flash to provide light while aiming the camera for a normal photo.
