Blue eye

Bought a k-x as my first dslr mainly for the high high iso capabilities,trying to see how it functioned and found a problem like using a flash,the 'on' indicator light lit up mu wife's glasses as bad as red eye with a flash.Pentax should have put it in another location.

You sure it's not the reflection from the laptop screen?

+1 it seems that the reflection of the computer screen on your wife's glasses gives the blue color.

That's what I thought too but looking at the pictures the armrests and even her foot, which are behind the laptop screen, seems to have that blue reflection as well. Is there by any chance another "blue" light source somewhere in the room besides the "on" light?

Easy solution - Go to your camera's menu and either dim the light, or shut it off. On my Km it's labeled "Power Lamp", at C,3,20. The light annoys me and I just leave mine shut off.

However, I'm not convinced the blue light from the camera is the source of the problem. The light is directed away from the front of the camera, shielded not only by the camera body, but your own finger as you snap the shot. I can't see how it would illuminate the scene enough to cause what we see in the image.

Think I am wrong about the on light on the camera causing the blue but rather the on light on the laptop which is much larger and brighter as pointed out by a couple of others.Will try the same shot again tonight and get this sorted out.An trying to find a way to turn the screen off except when I need it.
Thanks,
Jake
