35
RED-EYE REDUCING FLASH
Significantly reduces the phenomenon of
"red-eye" (when subject's eyes appear red
in flash photography).
In the
flash mode, the camera will fire a series of
low-power pre-flashes before the regular flash. This
makes the subject's pupils contract, significantly
reducing red-eye. Except for the pre-flashes, this mode
is the same as the Auto Flash mode.
Red-eye Reduction may not be effective when the
subject:
1. Is not looking at the flash from the right front.
2. Is not watching the pre-flashes.
3. Is too far from the camera.
4. Does not respond to the pre-flashes due to
particular individual characteristics.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to hold the camera still until the
36
shutter releases. It takes approximately one second.
OFF (Flash Override)
When you don't want the flash to fire even in
the dark or when you want to shoot such
subjects as fireworks.
In the Flash-Off mode, the flash does not fire even in
low-light conditions. Use this mode in situations where
flash photography is not desired or is prohibited or in
twilight or night scenes.
Note: Since a slow shutter speed (down to 4 seconds) is
automatically selected in low-light situations when in the
Flash-Off mode, the use of a tripod is recommended to
prevent blurred pictures caused by shaking the camera.
Closing the lens barrier returns to Auto.
37
FILL-IN FLASH (Forced Activation)
When you want to fire the flash every shot.
In the Flash mode, the flash fires regardless of
available light. For example, this mode can be used to
brighten up a subject's shaded face or under artificial
lighting such as back-lit, fluorescent light. Use this
mode within the flash working range (p. 35).
It may be hard to work under excessively bright light.
Closing the lens barrier returns to Auto.
38
NIGHT SCENE FLASH
Both people and night scenes can be clearly photographed in this mode.
When taking pictures of people with a night
background, this mode produces clear
images of both.
Notes:
Since a slow shutter speed (down to 4 seconds) is
automatically selected in low-light situations, use a
tripod to prevent blurred pictures caused by
camera shake.
Spot mode is automatically canceled when Night
Scene mode is selected.
Closing the lens barrier returns to AUTO.
39
RED-EYE REDUCING NIGHT SCENE
FLASH MODE
Significantly reduces the "red-eye"
phenomenon often seen when people are
photographed against a night background.
The camera will fire a series of 10 pre-flashes before
the flash fires. This makes the subject's pupils
contract, significantly reducing the red-eye. Except
for the pre-flashes, this mode is the same as the Night
Scene Mode.
Please read the cautions in the Red-eye Reducing
Flash Mode (p. 36) and Night Scene Mode (p. 39)
items. The Spot Mode cannot be used while the
Red-eye Reducing Night Scene Mode is being used.
