Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Red-eye reduction, part of Nikon D5100 Essential Training.
If you take a flash picture of someone and you are at such an angle that the…light from your flash bounces off the back of their eyeballs, then their eyes…might look all red and creepy in the resulting image.…This doesn't happen too often with an SLR because the flash on the camera is far…enough from the lens that it's difficult to get that exact angle that will…create the red-eye effect, but it can happen.…If it does then you'll want to enable the red-eye-reduction flash, which works by…firing some initial small bursts of light to close down the irises in your…subject's eyes before it fires the full-strength real flash.…
Red-eye reduction is a flash mode.…To change flash mode, I push and hold the flash button while turning the main dial.…So, this is the icon for normal fill flash. When I see the little I ball…I know I'm in red-eye-reduction mode.…Notice there's a second mode with the red-eye-reduction eyeball.…That's slow red-eye reduction.…Don't worry about that. We are going to talk about that in the next movie.…
