Face Detection

When the Face Detection function is used, the camera detects the faces of your subjects and adjusts the focus, flash, exposure, white balance and red-eye reduction settings automatically.
When the camera detects more than one subject, the camera will judge which is the main subject and set focus by priority. The frame for which the focus is set will turn green by pressing the shutter button halfway down.
