Smile Shutter

When the camera detects a smile, the shutter is released automatically.

  2. Wait for a smile to be detected. When a smile is detected and the smile level exceeds the point on the indicator, the camera records images automatically.
  3. To stop shooting, press (Smile Shutter) again.

Tips for better capturing of smiles

  1. Do not cover the eyes with bangs. Do not obscure the face by hat, mask, sunglasses, etc.
  2. Try to orient the face in front of the camera and be as level as possible. Keep eyes narrowed.
  3. Give a clear smile with an open mouth. The smile is easier to detect when teeth are showing.
  • The shutter operates when any person whose face is being detected smiles.
  • If a smile is not detected, select MENU - [Smile Detection Sensitivity], then set the value to [Slight Smile].


  • Shooting using the Smile Shutter ends automatically when either the memory card or internal memory becomes full.
  • Smiles may not be detected correctly depending on the conditions.
  • You cannot use the digital zoom function.
