    Code help


    I'm new to all this stuff so please.... go easy!

    I currently have a pyhon script that states :

    while running:
    image = camera.take_photo(exposure='night', flash='red_eye_reduce')

    This strobes the flash ligh on the camera, now what I would like to know is what the command to get the LED on when it is in Video mode would be i.e

    while running:
    image = camera.take_Video(exposure='night', flash='red_eye_reduce')

    Which isn't right but I think you get the idea

    Also how do I find out the commands ?! I have no idea where to start with finding such information

    Thanks in advance

    I don't you can take videos from python first of all, but for future references you can always look in the API which you can get from the Sourceforge site, as well as if you know how to use the terminal using bluetooth and typing

    import camera

    it will tell you all the things the camera can do..

    >>> import camera
    >>> dir(camera)
    ['__builtins__', '__doc__', '__file__', '__name__', '_backlight_on', '_camera',
    '_finder_call_back', '_main_pane_size', '_my_call_back', '_my_camera', 'cameras_
    available', 'dev_index', 'device', 'e32', 'exposure_modes', 'exposuremap', 'flas
    h_modes', 'flashmap', 'graphics', 'image_modes', 'image_sizes', 'max_zoom', 'mod
    emap', 'number_of_devices', 'release', 'start_finder', 'stop_finder', 'take_phot
    o', 'white_balance_modes', 'whitebalancemap']

    You can find all the info you need in PyS60 doc (5.3 camera — Interface for taking photographs)
