    Everytime I use the flash its blinding, the first time I did I screamed. I played a prank too and I did it to my friend and she screamed too(pic is of her). Blurry because I was laughing :) Is this normal? I also have a case on if that might be the problem?[​IMG]

    The flash on my iPhone4 is pretty bright too. It's about as bright as the flash on my old BB 9700. Kinda hard to get a good, clear picture but I just try not to use the camera when it's too dark.

    Any LED flash is going to be bright . From Iphones to HTC phones . So in a nutshell your iPhone 4 light being really bright is normal as it is on other phones .

    I don't think your BlackBerry compares to the Camera of the iPhone 4, either take your photos in Daylight, or don't use flash if it's such a problem. Don't like it? Return it for Flash being too bright.

    Seriously, everyone complains when there is no flash, now when there is flash, it's still a problem. :mad:

    Haha as I said above I won't try to use the flash. I wasn't complaining, just wondering If anyone else thought the same. Don't get so angry.

    Sorry, just frustrated, spending a bit too much time here this morning. On another note, if you do get Flash working then feel free to send me photos of your friend. :cool:;)

    If it wasn't as bright then it wouldn't be a very good flash, would it?

    You want a dim flash? You are moving the camera during the shot!! When the light first goes on (to close the pupils and help with red eye) you need to hold the camera still. Then the shutter will open and take the shot. Hold it still and the flash is great. There is a delay that you are not accounting for. :)
