red-eye and correct it in-camera. Red-eye removal can be turned on or off.
Intelligent Flash: When the flash is used, the camera's
Intelligent Flash system instantly analyzes the scene based on such factors as
the brightness of the subject, its position in the frame, and its distance from
the camera. Flash output and sensitivity are adjusted to ensure that the main
subject is correctly exposed while preserving the effects of ambient background
lighting, even in dimly-lit indoor scenes. The
camera's built-in flash has a range of 2' to 14' at wide angle and 2' to 7'10"
at telephoto. When the camera is in Macro mode, the flash range is 1' to 2'7". The
