Face Detection and Face Recognition
If the camera automatically identifies the scene and determines that people appear 
as subjects in the picture (
), Face Detection is activated, and the focus and 
exposure are adjusted for the recognised faces. (→99)
Face Recognition
The faces of people who are taken frequently can be registered together with their 
names, ages, and other information.
If pictures are taken with [FACE RECOG.] (→78) set to [ON], priority is given to the focus 
and exposure adjustments of the faces close to those that have been registered. Also, 
the camera memorises detected faces during Face Detection, automatically recognises 
faces which are taken frequently, and displays them on the face registration screen.
 AF Tracking
Even if a subject, where the focus was locked (AF Lock) moves, the camera can continue 
to keep it in focus.
