Chapter 2: Taking Pictures and Recording Video Clips
The red-eye phenomenon is caused by light from the
flash reflecting off the subjects’ eyes, which sometimes
makes a human’s or animal’s eyes appear red in the
captured image. When you use a flash setting with
red-eye reduction, the camera flashes twice, minimizing
the red-eye in the captured images of humans or animals.
It will take longer to take a picture using red-eye
reduction, because the shutter is delayed for the
additional flash. In turn, make sure your subjects wait for
the second flash.
You can remove red eyes from human subjects in still
images that you have taken using the
Remove Red Eyes
option in the
(see page 80).
