Question about Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Red Eye Both my wife and I have this camera. We have the red eye reduction function set but almost every indoor shot of people has red eye. I have been told that if this function is set properly it will flash twice quickly when taking a shot. Our cameras only flash once. Any suggestions?

There's two ways to reduce/eliminate the red-eye with your A570IS cameras. The first is at the time of exposure, by ensuring the red-eye reduction function is activated via the shooting menu (see page 28 of the manual). In shooting mode, press "menu", highlight the "tools" icon, and go down to "red-eye on/off". Toggle over to "on". That should take care of red-eye, in some, but not all cases. You can also remove red-eye after the image has been recorded (page 69 of the manual). You can isolate the red eyes if the camera doesn't automatically them for you. This should give you two shots at eliminating red-eyes. Another, often overlooked way to reduce red-eye is to zoom out and move physically closer to the subject, rather than relying on the zoom lens to get you close when shooting with flash. Hope this helps.

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.

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.

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.

I get eyes that glow white in my pictures


bubba41, You didn't mention using the built-in pop-up flash that's when you get the "red-eye" and you can set the flash for redeye reduction when it's used.  If you are taking an indoor photo without the flash, if the redeye reduction is on turn it off that would eliminate the zombie or X-men eyes you are describing. randy320sgi

Red Eye


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.

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,

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?

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.
