    Can the preflash be disabled on the gf2 and/or gf3?
    On my epl1 I can use one of the reduced flash power settings (1/4power 1/2power etc) to disable the preflash but from what I can tell from reading their user manuals the gf cameras don't seem to have this option.
    The reason I ask is because preflash makes people blink so I always end up with lots of photos of people with their eyes closed when I use automatic flash modes.

    Please, does anyone know if the GF2 and GF3 have a preflash? When the red eye reduction feature is disabled do the cameras fire a quick flash before the photo is taken?

    GF2 is always pre-flashing as well as G3. It is disabled only if manual external flash is attached.
