    I want to be able to use the camera LED light with the camcorder.
    I did a search and I came up with a few options, I downloaded 6 or more apps and none worked. Does anyone have any that are known to work for the Casio Commando?

    Nope it don't work. The weird thing is you can turn on the flash light when in camera mode and it will stay constantly on. But camcorder mode doesn't turn it on. My old Samgsung non smart phone did it, it even had night mode in camcorder mode.

    Nope... I tried a couple of apps off the market that's sole purpose was to manipulate the led lights, and I couldn't find any that would activate the flash led.

    seems like we got owned with the camera app that came with the commando for sure...

    can we use software from another phone wiith the same camera hardware perhaps? say rip the camera apks from some sammys, or something.

    Thanks, I just downloaded LGCamera, it seemed promising it lets you turn on the light when in camcorder mode, but once you hit record it turns off.

    Anyone else have some ideas?

    LED cock block! GRRRRR

    This is a *simple* function, seems simple enough and makes perfect sense.
