Hi,

 

I just purchased a new A22  Galaxy 4G    and noticed for some strange reason  i CANNOT use the torch  while trying to use the camera to record videos.   Is there something  I'm doing wrong ??

The torch function itself works fine ..but shuts off  as i try to use the camera.

 

Problem is ...  for the type  of videos i record  ...  i need the torch to stay on  as i'm recording.

Is there something i do to correct this ??    ( an internal setting , or downloading a torch app from the store)

or do i need to consider buying a new phone that allows the torch to  stay on while recording ???

 

Thanks in advance !

Try this: Start the cam app, choose video mode and only after this activate the torch from the notification panel.

When I activate my camera app I ensure the flash it toggled.on and then when I start to record a video I tap on the lightning bolt in the top rh corner as shown in my screenshot @ezcashflo

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

You can't use torch and camara at the same time as camara uses flash to focus at low light..the led ligh is exclusively used for camara.
