    Can anyone find a function to toggle the flash on or off in video mode while recording? I believe this used to be a function in Nokia Camera (in fact, I have footage to prove it!) but I don't see any way to do it now.

    But this was most certainly possible before. Like I said, I have footage that proves it, where the flash turns on and off throughout the video clip. I don't understand why this feature would have been removed.

    I've never been able to do this with any Windows Phone. Ever. WP7 or 8.

    I promise you it was possible.

    On October 25 2013, I was not able to change flash while recording. The footage from this date had to be stopped and restarted to enable and disable flash.
    On October 31 2013, I was able to change flash while recording. I have one continuous video clip where the flash comes on and off visibly in the middle, and I was clearly in control of it.

    Both clips were recorded with my Lumia 920 using Nokia Camera (then called Pro Cam), since Amber had become available in August 2013. I thought perhaps it was a function in Pro Cam that was dropped with the change to Nokia Camera, but now looking at old Youtube videos of Pro Cam, I don't see any way to change the flash during the shot in that old app either.

    This absolutely puzzles me.
