Red eye extreme even at 20 ft with reduction on, canon rebel xs 10.1


Answers :

Red eye is caused by two things, the iris of the eye not prepared for the gobs of light that happens when someone is in the dark and also the fact the in-built flash is on a very close axis to the lens.

\015\012There is very little you can do except buy a SpeedLight like a 430EX or a 580EX to get the flash higher than the camera and it gives you opportunity to bounch the flash off surfaces like a ceiling or a wall.
\015\012
\015\012The other is to get the subject close to another light source to get their eyes to get used to more light and you have a better chance. Also try bumping up the ISO in low light, meter for the ambient light you have and use the flash to fill the shadows, you will get more pleasing balance pictures too, rather than the deer in the headlights look.

Dark images canon powershot sx100 seems that every pic is dark even with flash and in various light conditions. It seems that the right side of the control dial (where the flash icon is) doesn't allow me to change the flash type as it used too. nothing happens, can't choose red-eye reduction or anything.

Hi--I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FP8, which I bought in May 2010. The camera is great for outdoor landscapes, etc. but I've had problems with low lighting and red eye. The camera has trouble focusing on the subjects, and there are often white spots all over the picture (even though I've cleaned the lens and checked to see if there were scratches or dirt on it). In addition to this, I have the red eye setting on, but I still get really awful red eye in all of my pictures. The camera is still new
