Auto with Red-eye Reduction
The “Auto with red-eye reduction” flash function of the COOLPIX5200 uses an ad-
vanced red-eye reduction method. Several pre-flashes are fired before the main flash
fires to reduce “red-eye.” In addition to this function, if “red-eye” is detected the cam-
era will automatically correct it when storing the picture. Using this function there is
slight delay before you can press the shutter release again for the next shot. Depending
on the situation, red-eye reduction may not always produce the desired results. In some
rare cases, other picture areas may be affected as well as the “red-eye” area. In this
case, choose another flash mode and try again.
Display flash-mode menu.
Highlight desired mode and press 
 or
. Flash mode is displayed in monitor
(to exit without changing mode, wait
two seconds without pressing any but-
tons).
