Don't like flash much, and the anti red-eye preflash gives bad results as often as anything. The "power" needed to shoot 15 frames at 30/sec in high resolution would be nice to have though.

Well, the problem with closed eyes is not just with redeye reduction modes.

Many Digital Cameras use a preflash for metering purposes.

I've seena LOT of complaints on various forums about being unable to get photos of groups without eyes being closed because of this preflash.

Ametering preflash appears to impact some people more than others (some close their eyes everytime, others don't).

Even with studio flash, you'll get the occasional closed eyes. I take more than one photo of each subject, and on occasion I've had to steal eyes from another photo to make one of the better ones look right.

It's a problem as old as flash photography.
