    hi ubxxx
    the flash depends on many external factors plz refer the documentation of python.

    I tested the code on N71 (s60v3). it flashed red light.

    Well I said I had tested it on a Nokia 6680 or perhaps it was Nokia 6681 and the flash doesn't come up. I am not sure of other models. All 3rd Ed devices generally do give a small red flash.

    Re: N70 camre flash problem

    I'm actually having the exact same problem with my N70. The flash goes off regardless of how the "flash" parameter is set. My code is set up in the most simple configuration possible.

    Any ideas?

    Sure, it doesn't get any simpler:

    Code:
    import e32, camera, time
        
    
    pic = camera.take_photo()
    pic.save('e:\\images\\picture1.jpg')
    I'm starting to this that it's a phone-specific ordeal. When I take a regular picture (with the default photo app), it still flashes just a bit. I'll probably need to turn it off via a hex editor or something.

    hi evanbooth
    yes you are absolutely correct i checked the thing in my n70. I am guessing that the flash is depending on the outer atmospheric factors that may be the reason the flash not working.

    Hope you get it

    What happens, when you try to set flash ON in your code? Is it same "red flash" or a white flash? My N82 uses red dot to do auto focus and that's something different than actual flash.

    I have noticed the same problem with N73. Set flash mode to none but I still get the white flash.
