Seriously, you can not hold a normal camera to shot a picture while others are playing poker, that is weird if you wanna cheat. Phones with cameras make sense of doing it and even can be just put on the table to scan the cards quietly. No flash, don't worry about it. We support all kinds of mobile phones with spy camera scanners which are really has same all functions with normal phones, yes, you can use it to call, to text, to surf Internet as they originally do.
