Default Why does my camera flash twice?

I hate it porque when I take a flick gente begin to scramblle after the first flash and I have to tell them not to move porque it flashes twice.

This is the camera that I have...it's a Vivitar brand it's a Vivicam 3780's 4x digital zoom.

is there something I ain't doing right or que?

sweet and SD are correct, it's the red eye reduction. there is usually a way to turn it off. Check the manual. However, be prepared for eye-removal on the computer because if you take a lot of pics where there isn't a lot of light, you are going to be dealing with a lot of it.

hello chavelita.

There are a lot of ways to do it. It requires software. I use photoshop exclusively it has a built in red-eye remover.

Now I am not suggesting you go out and buy photoshop. There is a cheaper solution: Adobe photoshop elements. Even free solutions since many cameras come bundled with software that does it just fine.

If you are on a mac, your computer comes with iphoto, which is a great piece of photo editing software.

if your camera didn't come with software and you are not on a mac, then you can purchase some software. I would recommend a cheaper solution like adobe photoshop elements, which runs you about $100 and will do a lot of good things to improve your photos.

There are cheaper alternatives but nothing I would recommend at this point.

GIMP might work. Last time I used it, I wasn't impressed. I guess I am just too attached to photoshop. I didn't recommend it for the same reason I didn't recommend photoshop. It might be too daunting for some people, especially someone who just wants to do light editing and fix red-eye. (does gimp even have a red-eye removal tool?)

wish there was a free or very cheap solution on the pc that is equivalent to iphoto on the mac.
