    Anyone know of a way or combination of apps that would allow me to have the LED flash on while recording video ? Perhaps I am missing something obvious ?

    If I use a flashlight app then the camera will not startup.

    Yes, there is a setting for it.

    Go into camera, click on the video camera icon to choose camera mode. Select the video camera icon. Now in video mode there will be a little round icon that looks like a dial. This opens the camera settings (there are separate settings for still camera mode when you are in it). You'll see a row of icons. Click on the lightning bolt. You'll get 2 choices....on and off. On will automatically put the LED flash ON whenever you put it into video camera mode.

    Have fun!

    Thanks. I swear I looked for it but I told you it would be something obvious :)

    You were right. I can't tell you how many times I've searched for something only to find it exactly where it should be.... only I never looked there!
