Screwdriver Set

Can I turn a camera flash into a flashlight?

I had recently taken apart a camera that had died on me. So, being the nerd I am I broke out my mini screwdriver set and trusty soldering iron and got to work. Now, I know that camera flashes are very bright, and use a lot of voltage to accomplish this; does anyone know how I could turn this flash into a continuous source of light? Is it even practical?
Thanks in advance.

Camera flashes take a very large amount of power, so they use capacitors that are charged slowly, then release quickly. To make it stream constantly, you'd need so much power from a battery that it'd be impractically heavy to carry. Not only that, but they put out a lot of heat, which normally isn't a problem because it's so brief. If it was on all the time, I'm betting you'd have some serious heat problems.

Just stick with LEDs, they make more sense.
