If the red-eye reduction is turned on, and you can verify that the pre-flash is functioning, you may need to think about shooting technique. With ultra-compact cameras, the flash is necessarily placed close to the lens. This is the worst design possible to avoid red-eye. To reduce red-eye as much as possible, ensure the red-eye reduction system is turned on (and functioning properly), and get close to the subject. I mean "physically" close, not just close by zooming. Use as little zoom as possible. If the subject is small, move closer, without relying on the zoom lens to make the subject appear closer.

Sore, red eyes can be a sign of tired eyes. Taking regular breaks and reading in a good light can all help to avoid eye strain.

But if you get any of the following symptoms are concerned about your eyes you should seek immediate medical attention;

1. Blurry vision

2. Headaches

3. Trouble focusing

4. Sudden loss of vision

5. Eye pain

6. Red eyes

Have red eye on pictures and thought it was suppose to get rid of red eye


Red eye reduction is a feature that has to be turned on in the camera settings. It isn't turned on by default. It isn't perfect anyway- you may still get some red-eye. This can be further reduced or removed by editing the pics in a graphics editing program on a computer.

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.

Turn off the auto red eye removal option......you 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 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


RED EYE is caused by the sudden flash from your camera and the eyes reflex reaction to the sudden light. So what the red eye reduction does is to double flash to counter the reaction. You can try adding an external light source to to your subject. in addition to the following procedures for your camera in the manual, the indicator location on page 64 Flash On Flash Off Red-eye reduction C REC modes on page 52, Snapshot; pg 64, have the flash fire automatically when required (Auto Flash) * Turn off the flash ... recording with flash, reducing the chance of red-eye in the image (Red- eye reduction) In this case, the flash fires automatically; Also, be aware of the following: The approximate effective range of the flash is shown below. Wide Angle Optical Zoom: Approximately 0.4 to 2.9 meters (1.3´ to 9.5´) (ISO Sensitivity: Auto) Telephoto Optical Zoom: Approximately 0.4 to 1.6 meters (1.3´ to 5.2´) (ISO Sensitivity: Auto) * Depends on zoom factor
