Use display as flash for selfie

Hi! 

Some Xperia devices have the function to use the display as flash showing a white image before the taking the shoot (good solution for take selfie) . 

I don't see this function on my Xperia X Compact. 

Does anyone have any information about it?

Re: Use display as flash for selfie

Hi @klaudio92,

I am sorry to say that there's no such built in feature in Xperia X Compact or other Xperia devices to my knowledge. However, I do know that there are third party camera apps which include such a feature, have you had the chance to try one out? I have not personally used any third party camera apps so unfortunately I won't be able to assist you with recommendations. Slightly frowning Face

That sounds strange, I was not aware of such a feature and now when I have a look in an Xperia M5 I am not able to locate the feature. Could you tell me where it could be found?

@Emir @klaudio92 there is no such feature in standard camera apps, you can use apps like Camera360 and similar to achieve such function however mind that it's not really that useful.

Re: Use display as flash for selfie

I believe you are right @YoGem. As I mentioned, I have not heard of such a feature and could not locate it in any of the Xperia devices I checked. Could it be that you remember it from a third party app @klaudio92?
