Firmware Defect: Can Not Turn off Red Eye Reduction Flash if RAW Only
Jun 11, 2011

I purchased an EF-20 as a fill-flash. "Red Eye" reduction introduces a double flash and a long latency, which makes using the camera with fill-flash impractical.

Select RAW ONLY, which is all that I shoot and you can not turn off the red eye reduction flash, so you are left with a slow double flash.

Choose RAW+JPG, or JPG only and you can disable the red eye flash.

Has this defect been reported to Fujifilm?

Will DPreview be testing this feature with the updated firmware?
