REC Mode/Recording Techniques

Q30 What should I do when the eyes of the subjects have red or white spots in them when I use a flash?
A30
When you shoot an image with flash at night or in a dark room, light passes through the pupils of the eyes of the subjects and reflects back off the retina in the back of the eyeball, which causes the eyes of the subjects to appear red or white in the recorded image. This phenomenon is called "red eye."

 -The camera's red eye reduction flash setting performs a pre-flash operation that reduces the chance of red eye, compared with the auto flash setting.
