Default Avoiding Flash Use

I just bought the S230. I new going in that the red-eye reduction was less than perfect with this camera. I know almost nothing about manual photography. What's the best way for an amateur to use the manual controls to avoid using the flash as much as possible and when is the best time to use those controls? Thanks so much!

It depends on what you taking photos of! If it's non moving objects you could disable the flash and find a steady place for the camera to avoid movements.

Otherwise I would recommend setting the ISO up...but your camera has to have this feature. Check the menu/manual.

If the "red eyes" is the problem - you could use a external flash (if you camera has this feature) and point the flast into the cealing or away from your object.

You could also get some software that will remove the redeyes afterwards.

I agree it very irritating!
