The simple answer is that the flash on a point and shoot camera is so close to the lens that the light bounces off the back of the subjects eye and you get the red of the blood vessels. That's why cameras have a flash setting called "red eye" which is very useful when shooting in a low light situation.

There is a lot of red eye on the photos ,please help.I cannot find a red eye reduction button on the camera.


I don't know whether this camera has red-eye reduction. It is likely to be found in the setup for the flash, or as a toggle for the flash setting. On some cameras, you toggle through the available flash settings until the icon (usually a lightening bolt) has an eye next to it.

Red eye reduction is not perfect even if the camera offers it. You get a much better solution by using a photo editing program in the computer to remove red eye from your shots. Many such programs have a function just for this that works almost automatically. You may have gotten a photo editing program with the camera, but there are many others downloadable for free on the net, try www.download.com.

How to remove red eye / eyes in pictures using Windows 7 built in tools


You don't need specialized programs or photo editing software to fix a red eye in Windows 7. You will only need to have MS Office 2003 or later installed or download a small free program called Red Eye Remover.

IF YOU HAVE OFFICE 2003 OR LATER INSTALLED

Go to the picture from which you want to remove the red eyes. Then , right click on the image and from the open with menu , select Microsoft Picture Manager.

Now select the edit picture button.

This will bring up a toolbar at the left of the window with the photo editing tools.

1) On the bottom of the toolbar , zoom using the slider so that you can clearly see the eyes you want to edit.
2) Then , on the right hand toolbar , select the Red Eye Removal Tool.

Now click on the eyes you want the red removed from. A little red eye should appear after clicking.

I have a HP Photo Smart R707 with a fully charged new battery and the flash won't work. Keep getting charging flash. Any help on this?


The flash mode has to be set.

There are 5 flash modes:
  • auto - flash fires when needed
  • red-eye reduction - flash fires when needed, but there's a pre-flash to minimize red-eye
  • flash on - flash always fires
  • flash off - flash never fires
  • night - flash fires if necessary (and uses red-eye reduction) to illuminate foreground objects, but shutter stays open to record the background by ambient illumination

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 problem for our baby, but not adults?


That's normal for all point and shoots when shooting babies. Either bring up the room lights,use the red-eye function with the flash, or use a photo editing program to remove the red-eye.

Hi I have a ml200rt it did not come with a manual there are 3 attachment points a b c which do I attach the wires to?


Wires are attached to terminals A and B.
Terminal C is only used when you use photo eye.

With photo eye, wires attach to terminals B and C instead of A and B. Then photo eye black wire connects to A, photo eye red wire to terminal C, and photo eye middle wire to terminal B.

Open following link for ML series manuals and information.

Red eyes


As both the camera and the flash does not have red eye reduction facility, you can solve the problem by not using high speed film, i.e. not more then 100 ASA and avoid shooting in very low light.
