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.

DSC-H7 camera, getting red eye or white eye spots


First, here is why they are red or white spots:

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.

this should work for you...

Some of my pics are great but most are awful


Are you pressing the shutter button half-way and allowing the camera to lock in focus before you press the rest of the way? Red-eye is common to all point-and-shoot cameras because the flash is almost in line with the lens. This can be removed with many photo programs. Your camera has a red-eye setting which pre-flashes to eliminate the red-eye effect.

Continuous Red Eyes and dark photos every other one.


1) The red eye effect is due to pupil dilation. When the person is standing in dark, the pupils dilate to allow more light to enter the eye so that objects are visible. In such conditions if you try to take a snap then you might end up having Red eyes.
What Red eye reduction technique does is that it flashes a series of times before the actual snap is taken and due the series of flashes, the pupil try to adjust by closing down and reducing the red eye effect, hence stronger the flash, less is the red eye effect.
Also, there are bundles of software out there which can detect red eye and remove the same.. I am not sure, you might have received software even along with your camera that can address this issue.

2) The use of Speed-Lite 430 might not be always .. It depends on the conditions and distance of the object from the camera lens. Onboard lite should be enough to capture the subjects that are within 5-6 meters and to get rid of shadows where as if the surroundings are very dark then you might want to fallback on Speed-Lite 430.

3) The basic difference between the RAW and JPEG is that RAW is uncompressed format and you can do editing and compression at later time where as JPEG is a compressed format and you might not be able to do as much as you can do with RAW format. Unless you want to edit the images at later stage, you might not want to use RAW.

Please let me know if any further explaination is needed.. Till then Happy Photography :)

I have a Kodak c513 easyshare camera and every photo I take has red eye in it. I was also told that I needed to check my resolution. What is that and how do I do that? Also how do I set flash so photos are...


Resolution has nothing to do with it. Red eye is caused by the flash being close to the camera lens, when the flash fires it reflects light from the persons eye back to the camera lens. Solution is to set your cameras flash setting to "red eye" This setting makes the flash "stutter" to make the eye not reflect the flash back to the camera. The red eye setting can be achieved by repeatedly pressing the flash function button until you see a lightening bolt with an eye icon in your display panel. The other option is to boost your iso to about 800 or 1000 for indoor useage, the problem with this is that the pictures will have a grainy look to them, but the flash will not fire.

How do you activate red eye reduction in the 5900?


To take photos with red eye reduction requires your flash to firerapidly before snapping the pic. Make sure camera is in record mode pres the 4 way switch with the lightning sign on it. The flash modes will pop up. select red eye flash.

To fix red-eye after a photo is taken. Bring up the photo in playback mode and press menu button. Red eye reduction should be available as one of the menu items. Otherwise, display the pic, press OK button in center and if you like the fixed picture then select yes to store it.

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?
