GRIII Face Detection

As an AF mode, is it available on the GRIII in all modes (M, Tv, Av etc).

That is all!


Cheers,

It is available in every mode and when [Auto area AF], [Select AF] or [Pinpoint AF} is selected.

Ah I see, so it sounds like it's working a little different from how Face Detection works on Pentax DSLR's, the difference instead of being a direct focusing mode it is almost a sub feature in other focus modes?

I believe my friend has a GRII and Face Detection only works in certain modes such as Manual and not Av or something... I'm just curious how much better Face Detection is supported in the GRIII.

Exactly. You can deactivate the Face Detection from the menu, if you don't want the feature...

I haven't used previous models, but the GRIII face detection is very effective, as I can tell you from using my brothers GRIII. It easily recognizes faces and can also hold focus on them while people move.

You can have it generally enabled or disabled or enabled only in AF Auto area.
