    I took a couple of pics last night (outside) of friends. It was very dark and I used the flash. All I got was a very bright circle in the middle of the pic and I could not even make out my subject.

    Is there a way to take a pic in total darkness with the camera and have it render a fair pic at the very least?

    This is concerning an iPhone 4 of course.

    Obviously, unless you use an external source of light other than your LED flash, no. Cameras rely on light entering the lens to take a picture. Low/no light=bad image.

    Well obvious to you maybe. When I use my point and shoot in darkness, the flash illuminates my subject and makes for a descent pic. I thought it was "obvious" the flash on my iPhone would do the same.
