Then you can try again. But red eye can be handled in your photo app. Almost all have a red eye remover now.
Hi, I need help with my camera please.
I have a pentax optio s10, I've had it for 4 and a half years with no problems. When the flash is on it usually takes bright crisp pictures, and when the flash is off not so good pictures but I'm used to that.
I was taking some pics of my son and I noticed it kept doing red eye, so I pressed the flash button (which I usually just have set to flash auto) and I changed it to flash auto + red eye which I have never used before. I carried on taking pictures and noticed that the pictures had gone really dark. So I changed it back to just flash auto but it was still taking really dark pictures :/ So I went to the set-up menu and reset the camera but it didn't fix the problem, it's still taking darker pictures that aren't that clear, even with the flash on... I don't know what's happened. I've used it with no problem for the past 4 yrs and it's always taken clear bright pictures, I don't know why this has happened just from me putting it on auto+ red eye, and then changing it back, even after the camera reset. Any help would be much appreciated, it's nearly christmas so I really need to try and fix the camera, please help if you have any ideas of what is wrong with it. Thank you
I don't really care about the red eye thing any more, lol, I'm just stressing about the fact that the pictures are suddenly darker and way less clear for no apparent reason
It doesn't take 'batteries', it has it's own specific pentax battery like mobile phones do. I can buy a new one, but not until after christmas n obv I wanna use the camera at christmas, and I don't really see why the battery would be the problem, it's showing as fully charged. Thanks for your help though
If you are talking about the light right below the flash - it is the autofocus light.
It should turn-on when you take any picture.
You said the camera is taking dark pictures.
Is the flash firing at all?
It takes 5 to 10 seconds for the flash capacitor to recharge after each use.
Are you giving it time to recharge?
