Default Red eye reduction cameras

Are there any good cameras out there in the $200.00 - 300.00 range (3 MP - 4MP) that handle red eye reduction better than the others?
I have looked at many reviews and all seem to have it!
I already tried a couple and sent them back. (Fuji A210 and Casio QV-R40)
I know you can fix it with software, but if I take 30 pictures at a kids birthday party and all have red eyes, I don't have time to mess with it.
Maybe I need to go up to higher quality cameras.!?
Are the ones that have the pop-up flashes much better then and I should just check out those?
Thanks!

Default Mmmm...

I don't think there is a 4MP consumer camera free of red eye.

Reason is flash is close to the lens. :shock:

I have a Nikon CP 4300 and somethimes I have red eye and I correct it with Nikon View. :P

Read the reviews at the following site. They do a red eye test with every cam they reviewed. :idea:

Good luck......

I believe you will need to purchase a camera with a hotshoe for external post or you can buy a slave flash that would work with a camera without a hotshoe.

Dead right. The amount of red eye depends mainly on the distance between the lens and the flash - as well as focal length, ambient light (how open are the pupils), angle of eye to lens, color of the eye, and phase of the moon. Getting more distance between the lens and flash unit will decrease the effects of all the other variables except the ones caused by gremlins getting into the peanut butter.
