Re: Red Eye

Does your camera's flash have a redeye reduction mode? It should tell you in your camera's manual. Some cameras use a pre-flash method which causes the flash to fire several times in succession before firing the shutter in order to give the subject's eyes time to adjust to the bright light.

Redeye is actually caused by the flash being too close to the camera's lens. That's why you see professional photographers using a flash attached to their cameras by a cable so they can move it away from the lens. Because you have a compact camera, there is no way to change this flash to lens distance.

You might also try just turning the flash off. Unless you are taking pictures in a very dark area, you may find the results to be very satisfactory.

Red eye on sanyo digital camera xacti,always theres a red eye when taking pictures,i already adjusted everything,still occuring red eye.

Do you mean your subject's eyes are showing "redeye"? This is a common problem with cameras that have the flash very close to the lens. Almost every photo editing program has a tool to remove red-eye. Check your computer to see what you have installed. In the future, most cameras have a red-eye flash setting which shoots a short flash before the main flash to close down the pupils in your subjects eyes to eliminate red-eye. You could also turn up the lights in the room...sometimes that helps.

Red eye

I know that it's possible to remove red eyes with different software, such as Photoshop. Doesn't take much time. Good luck with that, I don't think there's anyway you can change the way red eyes occur except using the blitz less.

Processing pause

Turn off the auto red eye removal can manually remove red eye later. If the auto red eye removal is on, it will try and process each picture after you take it and slow down camera.

Red eye and wise shot

I can help with the red eye - I've had the camera a year now and have only just found it myself!! - After you've taken your shot, review the picture and then press the Hold button, press the right side of the menu button, just as you would when switching through your pics. In the blue menu bar at the top you will see the red eye 'paint' symbol, press down on the menu button and it will 'red eye fix.

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,

Red-Eye Fix

Here is a link to the product manual: It states that to turn on red-eye reduction mode (p.43), go to the Camera menu, then set the top setting (red-eye) to "on". Even if you are unable to get this to work (or if you do get it to work, but are unhappy with the results), there is a really nice free proto organizer ( that includes a red-eye removal tool that is really simple to use.
