No flash when focusing in dark

2019-03-06, 23:05 PM

When the flash is turned on or on auto and you're in a dark room, if you touch the screen to focus, the flash does not turn on so you can see the object. Coming from samsung phones and others they would turn on the flash so you could see what you're trying to take a pic of. Is there anywayto enable this. It's basically impossible to take a pic in the dark as you cannot see anything on the screen...

You're correct there is no way to turn flash on while just in the viewfinder. The flash will only activate when snapping the photo. It's possible that 3rd party camera apps might have that functionality. Which model do you have? In the meantime, I'll pass the feedback along to our camera team.
