Red-eye Reduction

Using the flash to shoot at night or in a dimly lit room can cause red spots inside the 
eyes of people who are in the image. This is caused when the light from the flash 
reflects off of the retina of the eye. When red-eye reduction is selected as the flash 
mode, the camera fires a pre-flash to cause the irises in the eyes of any people in the 
image to close, which reduces the chance of red eye.
Note the following important points when using red-eye reduction.

• Red-eye reduction does not work unless the people in the image are looking 

directly at the camera (flash).

• Red-eye reduction may not work very well if the subjects are located far away from 

the camera.

The metering mode determines what part of the subject is metered for exposure.


In the REC mode, press [SET].


Use [8] and [2] to select the 

 (Metering) Control Panel option, and 

then press [SET].


Use [8] and [2] to select the setting you want and then press [SET].

Multi-pattern metering divides the image into 
sections and measures the light in each section for 
a balanced exposure reading. This type of 
metering provides error-free exposure settings for 
a wide range of shooting conditions.



Center weighted metering concentrates on the 
center of the focus area to measure light. This type 
of metering is best when you want some level of 
control over contrast.


Spot metering takes readings at a very small area. 
Use this metering method when you want 
exposure to be set according to the brightness of a 
particular subject, without being affected by 
surrounding conditions.
