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. 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. You can also choose whether the camera detects and focuses on eyes when Intelligent Face Detection is on. Choose from the following options:
If the camera is unable to detect the subject's eyes because they are hidden by hair, glasses, or other objects, the camera will instead focus on faces.
In some modes, the camera may set exposure for the frame as a whole rather than the portrait subject.
If the subject moves as the shutter button is pressed, the face may not be in the area indicated by the green border when the picture is taken.
