Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

I need to turn red eye off on my olympus e 510


Answers :

The red eye depends on what mode you are in. It may be selected automatically in a SCENE's Portrait mode or by one of portrait related dials on the top of camera. If you are in A, P, S, then you have to set it manually from the flash button or the menu.

I hope you are not confusing the Red Eye Reduction (Auto Flash) with the Pre-flash (Auto Illuminate), which is a similar flash mode typically used in Auto when the light is low to help the camera focus. This to can also be disabled in the Camera2 settings.

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta
