Hi there,

last week i updated my Jolla1 to 2.1.2.3 Before that i could record a video with the camera app - and while filming had the option to change settings - like turning the flashlight on and off.

This option is gone now - in fact i have no option at all available while filming (besides stopping...) No it can only be solved by setting it all before i start recording. Which sucks.

I would like to have the old features back - and honestly don't quite get why this was changed at all.

If you flag this as duplicate and close it - it would be nice if you could point me to that duplicate you obviously found - cause i certainly did not - hence the question. And a downvote - really?? kiddos - get a live.. - together.jolla really is getting worse the last 1-2 years...

This was one of several consecutive duplicates I closed at the time.

Much obliged! BTW duplicates are important beacons for the searching, just IMHO. But here comes the big BUT: this one is literally a duplicate, as in each single word. :) I remember that TJC wasn't too responsive that time; so I'm sure this one happened by mistake.

My priority at the time was to kill the exact duplicate as quickly as possible, before anyone posted to it. Hence no comment or cross-reference.

And I totally agree that near-duplicates should be cross-referenced - in BOTH directions. Decent software would do this automatically if course;)
