Basic techniques for better images
The eyes of the subject may come out red, or fuzzy white circular spots may appear when
using the flash. These phenomena can be reduced by taking the following steps.
The “Red-eye phenomenon”
Pupils become dilated in dark environments. Flash light is reflected off the blood vessels at the
back of the eye (retina), causing the “red-eye” phenomenon.
How can the “Red-eye phenomenon” be reduced?
Set [Red Eye Reduction] to [On] (page 55).
Select (High Sensitivity)* mode in Scene Selection (page 30). (The flash is turned off automatically.)
When the eyes of the subject turn out red, correct the image with [Retouch] on the viewing menu
(DSC-W130 only) (page 57) or with the supplied software “Picture Motion Browser”.
The “White circular spots”
This is caused by particles (dust, pollen, etc.) floating close to the lens. When they are
accentuated by the camera’s flash, they appear as white circular spots.
How can the “White circular spots” be reduced?
Light the room and shoot the subject without a flash.
Select (High Sensitivity)* mode in Scene Selection. (The flash is turned off automatically.)
On using the flash
* Even though you selected (High Sensitivity) mode in Scene Selection, the shutter speed might be
slower under low-light conditions, or in a dark place. In that case, use a tripod or hold your arms firmly at
your side after pressing the shutter button.
