How to Disable the LED During Snapshot

I am using a basic program to take a series of snapshots every 2 seconds.
I noticed the the Red LED illuminates every time it takes a picture even though my code does not utilize the LED.
How can I disable the LED as not to illuminate?


That indicates the flash cache is being flushed, there’s no way to disable it right now it’s hard-coded in micropython. If you use an SD it won’t turn on any LEDs.

Does the LED illuminate before, during or after the camera takes a snapshot?


It’s unrelated. It turns on when file access happens.

Well, let me be more specific, does the LED illuminate while the camera is taking the snapshot?
Meaning, I don’t want the LED to add any red illumination to the subject matter.


No, it should not.
