Since digital cameras do not need thesame internal mechanics or space for film they are becoming smaller and smallercompared to their film counterparts.This means that the flash is much closer to the lens. In fact, in most new pointand shoot digital cameras the flash is directly above the lens.This is the problem. When the flash is closer to the lens it causes the flash toenter the iris directly and reflect straight back to the camera causing the terriblered eye that has ruined your family pictures.
