This is one piece of hardware that was long discussed and really criticized, so someone was clever enough to actually test the LED and show its power…or lack of it.
The Nokia N96 features a Dual LED flash instead of the loved Xenon. The excuse that Nokia Product Managers presented is that Xenon lights can only be activate for a second, where the LEDs can be active during the whole of the video capture session. Last night I saw a Mercedes, and it came to my mind that some cars use Xenon headlights, which are lit for long periods of time, so why couldn’t this technology be incorporated in phones?
Enjoy the video…
