    Hi all,
    I am using my nex-f3 all the time in the bouncing position (just pulling it back with my fingers) ..
    and I have noticed that each time I shoot something first flashes 3 times until the last one is launched. I guess this is done for reducing red eye behaviour.
    I just want flash to open just once, so is faster for me to keep shooting with my flash at bouncing position.

    Is there any option in the camera?

    It depends on the mode. Some only allow certain types of flash.

    Yes, it sounds to me like the red-eye setting is doing this.

    Yes that was... also I found that I can not turn off flash from shooting when in manual mode...... Great.
