I'm looking for a retina quality iOS icon for a new app out called Shiny.

Shiny is an iOS app that turns on the iPhone LED light and uses that as a flashlight. What differentiates Shiny from other flashlights is it actually turns on the camera as well, so you can use the camera as another point of view if you are working on something in the dark.

For example, if you are trying to look for something in your car under your seat, you turn Shiny on and you can look at your iPhone screen to see what is being illuminated instead of having to crank your head down to the carpet floor. =]

I'm not looking for anything too hard core, just a solid iOS icon that anyone would be happy to see on their home screen at any point in time.

The message I am trying to deliver with the icon is:

1. The app is a flashlight app
2. The app uses the camera to provide an alternate point of view

Further requirements

Have fun with it!
