    I just got a D80 and have been playing around with it and noticed that it has a few seconds delay when using the red-eye reduction flash option. Just wondering if this is normal or if I should take it back? Thanks!!
     
  2. A few seconds is not normal, but a fraction of a second (which can feel like a few seconds) is. The camera emits a red light "pre-flash: in an attempt to force pupils to contract. I have never found that to be a reasonable option, usually it does not reduce redeye but does cause people to blink or move. Redeye is easily dealt with in software nowadays, there is really no reason to use it in-camera.

    doesn't it have red-eye touch up in body? i'd figure if the D40 has it the D80 should to.
