Question Can you turn flash on/off with a key?

Please Login to Remove!

On my Curve, I could use the space bar to turn the flash on and off. Is there an equivalent on the Storm2? I've pressed everything but maybe I'm missing it.

Thanks!

The camera flash.

Err, I am pretty sure it was the space bar. I knew I could do it with a key on the Curve.

There are some paid apps that will allow you to make the video/camera flash light to be used like you are describing, but the easiest way I found is to just make one of the side convenience keys the video application, and if its dark enough it will light the way for you to do anything. I was surprised how bright this little light was. That's how I do it anyway. ;)

Thanks deej... Actually, I meant turning it on and off for taking photos. It looks like I just have to go through the menus to do it.
