    Kika: Do you mean when the screen turns white to simulate a flash and create more light? Is you Flash function in the Camera app on?

    Can you use voice command to start and stop a video with iPhone?

    Fred: Try it and see. I don’t see why you couldn’t do that with the Voice Control method.

    Gary I have the shortcut working but there is no photo in my recents folder. I have been over the steps in the shortcut several times but nothing change, i.e. no photo. I can hear the camera shutter taking the photo and the shortcut cycles.When I shift to the Photos app it says it has “Updated Just Now” and no matter where I look in the Recents photos album there are no new photos. iPhone 11 Pro running iOS 14.4.2 Plan to demo this at a Tidewater Area Macintosh Users Group meeting this Thursday.

    Tom: Sorry, not sure what could be wrong. Does it work when you just run it in Shortcuts? Keep experimenting.

    Gary, finally got it to work. The secret was deleting the save to Photos step and recreating it. I also have done a restart on my iPhone.
