    I seem to have a little diffy when i attempt to use the camera on my Lumia 640 that more often than not, seem to be stuck, or it records videos that past few times i try to go in to snap a picture. By looking at the screen, i see the camera icon, i see the film projector looking icon and i think i'm on camera mode and it takes the pic. alright, the flash flicked and everything but turns out to be a video. So much for knowing what I'm doing. If there's a simple way of detecting when I'm on camera or video mode on the phone even, a red flag, or a flicker of V for Video C for camera or whatever-Smart phones seem capable to do all these things but not being for real on knowing what i'm doing to find video when i've thought camera last five times or so turned me to turn it o-f-f. So maybe if there's simple answer or suggestion for my what-challenging task of identifying when it's one or the other...Thanks, i'll try again.

    Do you maybe have Living Images turned on... They look like short video clips with no sound when you play them back.

    Thanks for your question re my thread and the answer is I don't have those live images checked.
    It seems to be that when i do attempt to take picture, i can generally go about 2 or 3 of photos and then i don't know if i hit a button or that it's a combination of doing something that triggers the video camera and ya never know if you've (or i haven't seen otherwise) but i only know it's a video on a picture that i intended to look at that shows it's a video (instead).
