Beautiful 'People Pictures' in any Situation
Ensuring clear, natural looking ‘people pictures’ can be tricky. Faces can look dark and underexposed in bright, backlit situations like a sun-drenched beach. And if you’re shooting indoors there’s a risk that your subject’s skin tone can look unnaturally coloured.
Face Detection automatically fine-tunes focus, exposure, colour balance and skin tone for more natural looking faces. It works whether you’re shooting video or stills.
