Download "led desire light" from the marketplace. Just turn it on before taking video.
Thank you soooo much novarider!!!
Or LED Light - Android app on AppBrain works too
Prepare to get bitched at for shining that light in people's faces in the dark haha. I'm not sure I've ever seen two LEDs shine that intensely.
I use LED Light, but it's pretty useless except for very short range. The light doesn't seem as bright as when it pops as the camera flash. Could this be different with another app?
Led Light works but don't expect miracles if that's your only light source in a dimly lit room
I could be wrong, but I have to think that the LED's on this phone are on or off, with no varying degree of brightness. I would suspect that the "flash" seems brighter as it goes from nothing, to bright, then back to nothing.
Lls I jus downloaded it... Yall right, doesn't do much...Thanks anyways
I thought that too. I just did a quick test though and it wasn't even close. It was way brighter when used as the camera flash.
So I wonder if there's an app that can unleash the full power of the LED
I see LED Desire light has a brightness adjustment...very cool. The brightest setting is much brighter than LED Light...
"Led Desire Light" app utilizes the full potential of the led light and can get just as bright as the flash when put on the highest setting.
I dont know if led desire uses the full brightness at its maximum setting or not, havent been brave enough to look at it while flashing sos, lol (I do recommend this app though), however, I advise against using them at full power for anything but short periods of time. Aside from the warnings accompanied by some of the software about damage to the leds, I can verify first hand that you will damage them. Based on my experience with high intensity led's for my rc hobby they WILL be damaged if on at full power for any extended period of time.
Im my opinion, I would not use the LEDs for camcorder use, I have no doubt that HTC purposley did not incorporate this into the software, because A. It would damage them, or B. when used at a safe level they are ineffective
LED Desire Light is by far the most useful app for this. Had both, sticking with desire.
I liked the shake to turn on with the LED Light (came in handy if you are, in fact, trying to use it for camcording), but with it only turning it minimum brightness, I feel the Desire one is at LEAST 5234885349.65% more useful.
If someone is returning an insured Evo, it'd be nice to have them run the desire app at full strength for an extended period and see how well the camera keeps it up without LED damage, heat generation, etc
