Sorry but the above solution is not what the user has asked. The user has asked to swich off the Green Sensor which is used to meter the distance when there is not enough light. Also the user has asked if this green pre flash causes red eye.

First, yes you can switch off the green light just go in settings. Second I would not recommend you switch it off because it helps the camera take good photo and its got nothing to do with red eye. Use Red eye photo flash reduce red eye, its a good camera for red eye reduction.

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

How do I remove the double flash from Vivitar 8025?


on some cameras (like sony) there is a very fast double flash .. you see only one .. the first sets up the shot the second takes the picture ... its not likely that your vivitar has this feature so i am thinking that your "noticable" double flash is caused by "red eye reduction" being turned on .. on my vivitar (dc8600) the flash mode including red eye reduction is selected by the 4 way switch .. by pressing the right tilt you can cycle thru all the flash modes ... that includes no flash, forced flash, automatic flash and red eye reduction..maybe other modes as well .. the flash is in fully automatic mode when no sysbol appears on the screen .. thats probably where you want to be ... that will flash only once per shot and only when needed .. ..

Red eye


Greetings mccombs7,

There should be a button corresponding with a lightning bolt symbol. When red eye reduction (pre flash) is on, then there is a symbol with an eyeball next to it. Depress the button until you get to the desired setting, which should be the lightning bolt alone.

I hope this helps!

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


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

Switch Off Pre-Flash


Hold down the flash button and turn either wheel. Select a flash mode that doesn't have the "eye" (red-eye reduction) symbol visable on the display.

Red-eye reduction in macro mode


The red-eye reduction feature causes the flash to blink on and off rapidly, then flash normally. This may cause over exposure and subject discomfort in the macro mode.
