Re: 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.

I have a Canon SD 790 and have tried everything to get the red eye reduction function to work. Problem is, I don't have my manual and can't find it in the 227 page download! I have looked through the tools...


Red eye reduction doesn't work that well on cameras. You would be better off importing your photos into a program like Picasa and fixing the red eyes there. Picasa's red eye removal is one of the best out there and very simple to use.

What you could also try is diffusing the flash somewhat. Put a piece of tissue paper over your flash is one way to do it. Or try bouncing the light from the flash off the ceiling with a piece of card (I've even used a piece of torn paper plate to do this)

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 .. ..

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.

Can't turn the flash off


Hi The product you have given has Built-in flash with Auto, Forced on, Red-eye on, and forced off (Red-eye reduction On or Off).
There is a 1 1/8" diameter lens with a built-in lens cover that automatically opens and closes when the on/off button is pressed. Above the lens is the viewfinder window, flash and tiny (almost unnoticeable) microphone. There is also a small circle that has three functions: the autofocus assist beam, red-eye reduction lamp, self-timer lamp. A wrist strap comes with the camera and attaches through a slot on the front of the camera near the side.
To the right of those buttons is the four-way controller, used for menu navigation as well as:
  • Up - Metering (Evaluative, center-weighted, spot)
  • Down - Drive (Single-shot, continuous, self-timer)
  • Left - Focus (Auto, macro, infinity)
  • Right - Flash (Auto w/redeye reduction, auto, flash on w/redeye reduction, flash on, flash off)

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 Fix


Here is a link to the product manual: http://alpha03u.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?SV=WWUCA900 It states that to turn on red-eye reduction mode (p.43), go to the Camera menu, then set the top setting (red-eye) to "on". Even if you are unable to get this to work (or if you do get it to work, but are unhappy with the results), there is a really nice free proto organizer (www.preclick.com) that includes a red-eye removal tool that is really simple to use.

I just bought an Epson 650 digital camera. I know, it's not new and fancy, but it's all I could afford right now. I bought this one (from ebay) mainly because my daughter has the same one- she bought several years ago, for around$350. I've noticed what big, clear, detailed pictures it takes (she sends to me). She resizes the pictures smaller, but the resolution on hers is 144. she uses one of the "better" settings, not the standard and not the BEST. What I've noticed with mine is, the resolution is 75 and the pictures don' tseem as clear and detailed. This might be partially because the scenery ones I've taken are of SNOW. I've tried using all the settings, even the very best, which only takes 3 pictures. The resolution is still 75. The picture size is big, 15"X 11". They are JPEG. I tried using he HotShots software that came with it, and now use Paint Shop Pro 7, with AQUIRE (Twain). I tried using the memory card in the USB cable that came with it, but it seemed to be clashing with my CD burner, which is in the other USB port. It's just as easy to use the camera and serial port and PSP. My daughter doesn't know much about it, she just takes the pictures and then takes them off. Hers have always been 144 resolution. I'm not saying the pictures on mine aren't good, and they're better than the Kodak DC 3200 I've had for over a year. Just that they don't seem as good as my daughter's, and it's the exact same camera. Could it be the memory (flashcard) that sets the resolution of the pictures? I have the original 8 MB one that came with the camera and my daughter once bought a bigger one. I know I can change the resolution in PSP to something higher if I want. I've been trying to find out what decides what the resolution of the pictures (when taken off the camera) might be? I can't find anything in the directions book about the settings for this. Just the "standard, better, best and extra fine". But, they all take pictures with 75 resolution.
