NB305 Webcam flash

My new NB305 webcam has settings to control the camera flash speed (50 or 60 MHz) but the flash never fires. Is there a way to turn it on? Thanks.

Hi mebob!  I may be completely wrong here, so take what I say with a grain of salt.  I have never seen a webcam with a built-in flash.  But I don't really keep abreast of developments in webcams.  Are you sure the webcam has a built-in flash?  I'm thinking the flash setting you are speaking of has something to do with taking a video in the Flash format, not with there being a built-in camera flash.  The Hz setting would be for syncing to your local mains power, so the video doesn't experience weird effects like picture rolling or something similar.  Just a wild guess, though.  I could be completely wrong.

Thank you. You're probably right -- that explains the choice of frequency that didn't make sense to me! This is my first webcam so I didn't know what to expect.
