lect ON for b FACE DETEC-
TION. Faces can be detected
with the camera in vertical
or horizontal orientation; if a
face is detected, it will be indicated by a green bor-

camera will select the face closest to the center;
other faces are indicated by white borders.

frame as a whole rather than the portrait subject.
• If the subject moves as the shutter button is pressed,
their face may not be in the area indicated by the
green border when the picture is taken.

Intelligent Face Detection allows the camera to automatically detect human faces and set focus and
exposure for a face anywhere in the frame for shots that emphasize portrait subjects. Choose for group
portraits (in horizontal or vertical orientations) to prevent the camera from focusing on the background.
