Probably better off in correcting redeye later on with your image editing software. Any software from free Picassa to Photoshop will easily get rid of the redeye effect.

Mama, a couple of things to remember when shooting with a flash. If they are looking directly at you you'll get more red eye. If you are using the onboard flash you'll get more red eye than if you were using a slave or auxilliary flash. The closer the flash is to the center line of the lens the more the redeye will occur! An auxilliary flash turned upward to bounce the light from a different direction helps some. I have a daughter that has redeye no matter what I do so I have to post process all shots of her!I don't know why it does that but it's easier to correct it in photoshop than have eye surgery performed on her eyes! LOL

Just wanted to add a note about software....PhotoFiltre(that great free program Boily put us onto:-)) does the nicest job of redeye removal I've used yet! Give it a try Dawg, I think you'll be impressed

I've already used it Dan. I don't take enough flash photos to get much use out of a red eye remover anymore!
