Re: red eye reduction

While in record mode, press the flash/up button repeatedly until you are in red-eye reduction mode. red-eye reduction mode should greatly reduce the problem when enabled. If this does not work, the software that came with your camera (and most photo editing applications) include a red eye reduction/removal filter.

hope this helps,

Everytime I snap a picture, the camera flashes three times. Help!

The camera is in Red-eye Reduction mode. The preflashes are intended to get the subject's pupils to contract, reducing the red-eye look.

Press MENU to display the menu. Press right-arrow to select the toolbox icon (Setup). Press the arrow keys to select Red Eye Reduction, and turn it off.

How do you turn the flash off so I can take pictures where a flash cannot be used?

Press Right on the cursor button (marked with the lightning bolt icon) to switch the flash setting. Your choices are AUTO, AUTO/Red-eye reduction, Forced ON, Forced ON/Red-eye reduction, Slow sync/Red-eye reduction, and Forced OFF.

Even with the red eye reduction function turned on I still get red eye----why

Red eye happens because the flash is close to the lens. Even with the red eye reduction function, you're still going to get some. You can either use off-camera flash, or correct it in software.

DSC-H7 camera, getting red eye or white eye spots

First, here is why they are red or white spots:

The red is the reflection of your flash on the retinas of your subjects. The white are generally animal eyes reflecting back.

You will notice this on flash shots only and mostly when you use the zoom. The zoom uses a "narrow" field of view so the light that reflects back is "direct", instrad of at an angle.

The fix: Change the ISO setting (it is set too high). It is probably near the maximum sensitivity (3200?)... set it to 400 or so and try that for a while. 800 is probably the best general setting, but try 400 first.

Try not to use the flash unless you really have to, but only if the subject is less than 12 feet away. If no people are in the picture, you may use the flash for subjects greater than 12 feet.

this should work for you...

DSC-P72 using Flash

Hi, While I do not have a P72, I find this problem odd. Most flash cycle times are so rapid that your grandaughter could not possible close her eyes in that time period (the travel time for the flash to fire and be reflected from the child's face is far faster than a human blink). The problem may be in pre-flash and not the flash itself. So that redeye-reducing "feature" may be responsible for your problem. Does your camera have a redeye reduction mode on the flash?

Red-eye problem still existant in the F505v?

Reports thus far are very favorable with regard to a lack red-eye problems and the red-eye reduction system. Many have said thus far that they usually do not need to engage the red-eye reduction flash.
