Need CameraFlashMode.Light on CameraMode.Photo mode

Hi,

 

I need the flash light in photo mode.

I can get the flash light on when camera is in video mode (CameraMode.Video) however my barcode reader application can't read the barcodes in camera mode...

 

So, my questions are:

1. Can we turn the flash light on (CameraFlashMode.Light) when we are in photo mode (CameraMode.Photo)

2. Can we read barcodes when camera in video mode (CameraMode.Video)

 

Thanks in advance.

Please use plain text.
