Default Can we keep the video camera running with clamshell closed?

Please Login to Remove!

Used to be able to do this on Nokia flip phones and it comes in real handy if I wanted to clip it to a backpack while riding a motorcycle to substitute a helmet cam. But when I close the flip, the video camera stops recording in a few seconds. Is there a setting or an after market video recorder that will continue recording till memory card is full?

The Flip can do this, you just got the wrong flip. I suggest this one, all the rage since its introduction:

Amazon.com: Flip Video Ultra Series Camcorder, 60-Minutes (Black): Electronics

Flip Video Camcorder - Digital Camcorder | Flip Video

I'm not aware of any inherent setting on the Pearl flip that will allow this. There may be 3rd party software out there that does.
