Re: N8 - Disable red light video recording

Not sure its possible as it's a legal requirement in some countries so that other people know they are being recorded

Re: N8 - Disable red light video recording

back in the day there were tutorials on how you could make a small incission on the N95 circut board to disable the red light.

 

i assume that anyone who does this is some kind of super pervert.

There's no dignity in begging for kudos. Do it for the karma.

Re: N8 - Disable red light video recording

I know the way to do this in N95. For other mobilephones (X6), custom firms allows to disable it, perhaps we must to wait this.

For small babys the light can distract them.

Re: N8 - Disable red light video recording

I can't see how to do this, I think it is part of the focussing mechanism....How about a bit of Gaffa tape or a finger over the light when you don't want it :smileytongue:

Re: N8 - Disable red light video recording

I saw this in a web page....¿anyone knows how?

 

Yes it is possible to turn of the red light during the video shooting mode. What you have to do here is follow the below steps:

  • If you will press the Q and W from the keypad it will set the Flash LEDs on and off,
  • And if you will press the E and R from the keypad then it will set the red recording LED on and off,
  • Also if you will press the A and S it will adjust the focus,
  • And the D to correct the auto focus.

Re: N8 - Disable red light video recording

It's not possible to disable red light presing the letters on keypad because when you are recording a video , you dont have acces to keypad. I found also that topic but someone there say that this solution is for N900

Re: N8 - Disable red light video recording

I don't think it is part of the Focus system. I use a adhesive black tape and it don't change anything in my video making. I've learned that Picobrothers have invented an App that turns it (The Red Light) on at anytime. Maybe someone can invent a way to turn it off while filming.

Actually, Slashd0t is right. CameraPro does allow you to disable the red LED when recording videos.

You need to disable the Auto focus light in General settings and not in Video settings. It doesn't disable the red LED in photo mode though, only in video mode.

Re: N8 - Disable red light video recording

I tried all settings, and wherever i could find an option for turning the focus light off, i did.

 

So, i noticed that once i have settings on macro, it turns off the red light, but only for the first video shoot. If i pause, instead of stopping, and keep recording the video, it's alright.

But once i stop, the red light turns on again. In that case I have to restart the camera pro.

 

Not a perfect solution, but nevertheless, there is a solution.
