Face Detection and Tracking

The camcorder automatically detects people’s faces and keeps the 
s

ubject in focus and correctly exposed. To focus on a person other than 

the one the camcorder selected, touch the desired face on the screen 
(tracking). You can also use tracking to always keep in focus other mov-
ing subjects, such as pets or moving vehicles.

* Face detection is always activated in N and 9 mode.
