My indoor flash images are blurry, what would cause this to happen?

It is possible you have the Flash Mode set to one of the Slow Sync modes (lighting bolt with the word Slow). Slow synchronization flash sets a slow shutter speed for the background exposure and fires the flash for the subject exposure. Since the shutter speed is slow, your subject should be still and the camera should be on a tripod otherwise blur can result. Since this mode should only be used when the above conditions can be met, you should use the FILL-IN FLASH (single lighting bolt symbol) mode for most situations that require a flash for correct exposure. Repeatedly pressing the FLASH MODE button will cycle through the various flash mode settings.

How can I correct redeye images?

Red-eye is actually caused by the light from the flash bouncing off the back of the retina and picking up the color red from the blood vessels.


To correct this effect, follow these steps:

  1. Turn the mode dial to PlayBack Mode (green arrow) and display the image with redeye. 
  2. Press OK\Menu button.
  3. Using the arrow pad, navigate to MODE MENU>EDIT>REDEYE FIX.
  4. Press the right arrow key, START will display.  
  5. Press OK\Menu
  6. After {BUSY} bar displays, a screen will display with an option to cancel or save the image.

     If the option [Go] is displayed, press the OK\Menu button.  This saves a corrected version of the image.


     If the option CANCEL is displayed, than the camera was unable to correct the image. Press the left arrow key to exit.


This correction may not work on all pictures.  If you import the original image into Olympus Master software you can also apply the Red-Eye fix located in the Edit menu.  This lets you precisely pinpoint the eye area and remove the red. It even lets you remove green or blue, which can occur with animals.
