    I tried using some led light apps but it turns off right when I open the camcorder. I'm thinking that the camcorder app overrides the control the LED light app has over the light.

    So I tried looking for a different camcorder app. But it seems there's only 2 and they suck.

    Any help getting a camcorder led light app?

    Same here, I tried the light apps but they shut off... Im sure there is a ROM out there that would over ride the system but you would have to have a rooted phone im guessing... Oh well...

    If you are rooted and have the [ROM] CyanogenMod-6 for MT3G Slide - V6.0.0-RC1 it lets you use your LED light with the camcorder. There is an app called Torch that allows you to do that. Go to the XDA forums http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=755118 go check out the ROM if you are rooted and are interested in it.

    I don't wish to root the MTS as I have no idea what it's for or even the definition of root.

    I did, however, figure out a way to use the LED for the camcorder.
    You have to download LED Light (I think that's the name).

    Then you install and run it. Go to menu/options and choose "Shake On."
    Go to the camcorder, shake your phone and the LED should come on.

    The shake feature stopped working for me after a week of use.

    No problem. Glad I could help. The LED still works for me I just had to turn off and on the shake option.
