Live View Face Detection

Today I was playing around with the KR and had it pointing towards the Television with Live View active and to my surprise, a yellow square appeared and it was tracking the faces on the television. I had no idea the camera had this feature! Mainly cause I rarely use live-view... and I rarely point my camera at humans... But pretty cool none-the-less!

I think this feature is a menu option. In live-view autofocus, you can use standard contrast autofocus, focus point-specific AF, or face tracking. I've never tried it myself, but thanks to your post, I will now.
