Intelligent Face Detection sets focus and exposure for human faces anywhere
in the frame, preventing the camera from focusing on the background in
group portraits. Choose for shots that emphasize portrait subjects.
To use Intelligent Face Detection, press MENU/OK
to display the shooting menu and select ON for
b FACE DETECTION. Faces can be detected with
the camera in vertical or horizontal orientation; if
a face is detected, it will be indicated by a green
border. If there is more than one face in the frame,
the camera will select the face closest to the center;
other faces are indicated by white borders.
QIn some modes, the camera may set exposure for the frame as a whole rather than
the portrait subject.
QIf 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.
