    Might sound like something you wouldn't use that often but sometimes I'd use this when taking pictures of stuff to sell on ebay. Just looked better than the flash - turn on the flashlight, use it as a way to light the object while using the camera.

    For some reason it looks like the ability to do that has been disabled here. Turn on flashlight, open Camera - flashlight is automatically turned off.

    Anyone else used the flashlight like this and/or seen this?

    Well a work around:

    1. Turn on flashlight
    2. Open camera (flashlight) gets turned off.
    3. Activate video recording (flashlight turns back on)
    4. Hit the capture button to take picture (under the stop button).
