    Do you use any flashlight app? Also, what are your flash settings set at in the camera app?

    Hmm... I use DroidLight on occasion, and use my camera very often. Haven't experienced this issue myself, but I'll post again hoping to bump you up the list and get some more help!

    Bump again...?

    No problem. I'd like to know if there's a common issue here and if there is, what I need to do to fix it...I like taking pics with my phone. :)

    im surprised no one has said this yet, so maybe its rare and not all phones have this problem/irritation.

    basically the same thing started happening to me (by coincidence or because i just never was in this situation before? i dont know.), in the long run of trial, error, panic, and frustration i realized it only did this when the battery was below i belive 30-40%.. i dont think there is a setting to adjust this unless i did it in my sleep but it ALWAYS happens now when battery is below a certain level and never happens when i got 40-100% battery..

    hope this helps, i use the 99c LED for Droid and its awesome with some cool features, id try it out but nothing to do with the issue your having.

    I've noticed that my videos have gotten so dark I can't see them.Is there a way to use the flash during a video? Everything is set on auto in video mode.If I'm outside it is fine.Anything indoors is dark.Even in the OliveGarden last nite which was well lite.Video was so dark you couldn't make it out? Thanx

    Not sure what it'll do to battery life, because I haven't tried it MUCH, but you can download DroidLight from the market. It's directly from Moto and allows you to use the LEDs as a flashlight if you haven't heard of it.

    Then, turn on the LEDs using DroidLight, and open up the video camera. I CAN tell you that this doesn't work TOO well in a bar that's pretty dark, but it should be find for when the lighting is just kinda dim...
