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.

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.
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.
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?
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.
