Bug Description

When using the camera app the screen flashes bright white - this was implemented for illuminating your face when using the camera pointing towards you https://bugs.launchpad.net/camera-app/+bug/1124574

However, when using the camera pointing away from you, and when using the camera with "flash" disabled, the screen still flashes bright white.

This has caused a museum I visited that has a ban on flash photography to think I was still using flash even though it was specifically disabled - the screen flash was bright enough to be "disturbing" what they didn't want exposed to bright light, or at least catch enough attention to be confused with having the flash on.
