Should we just display nothing in the place where the button should be ? Needs some design input on how the camera app should look in this case.

Ugo - can we try an "inactive" version of the icon by changing the opacity to 0.5 or less?

The same solution should be used when the phone doesn't have a flash - display an inactive version of the icon
