Face Detection frame

  • When the product detects a face, the gray face detection frame appears. When the product determines that autofocus is enabled, the face detection frame turns white.
  • In case you have registered the priority order for each face using [Face Registration], the product automatically selects the first prioritized face and the face detection frame over that face turns white. The face detection frames of other registered faces turn reddish-purple.


  • When [Set. Face Prty in AF] is set to [On] and the focus mode is set to [Single-shot AF], a detection frame is displayed over the eyes when the camera focuses on eyes. The frame displayed over the eyes will disappear after a period of time.


  • You cannot use the face detection function with the following functions:
    • Other zoom functions than the optical zoom
    • [Posterization] under [Picture Effect]
    • [Focus Magnifier]
    • Movie shooting with [Record Setting] set to [120p]/[ 100p].
    • When [Frame Rate] is set to [120fps]/[100fps] during slow-motion/quick-motion shooting.
  • Up to 8 faces of your subjects can be detected.
  • Even if [Face Dtct Frame Dsp] is set to [Off], a green focusing frame will be displayed over faces that are in focus.
  • When the shooting mode is set to [Intelligent Auto], [Face Priority in AF] is locked to [On].
  • The product may not detect faces at all or may accidentally detect other objects as faces in some conditions.
