Determine if hardware has camera flash?

I've searched through device, hardware and camera API's and can't seem to find a method to determine if a device has a camera flash or not.


The new BB 10 phone has one, but the Playbook does not.  I dont' want to present flash mode options to the user if there isn't a camera flash ont he device or worse, crash on the device when attempting to turn on the flash.


Is there any way to check if the device has a camera flash or not?
