I've made the disable_camera_led=1 change to the sudo nano /boot/config.txt and rebooted my Pi. The issue is the LED has stayed on?

How do I turn it off?

I had the same problem. I found that in one of the updates they actually broke that feature. A subsequent update fixed it. So I would try updating again.

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade

Here is a tutorial on how to turn off the camera led: Here

You can also as the tutorial states, make a python script that turns the led on/off on different actions. Or just make a script that turns it off at startup.
