FotoNationFace Recognition for Pentax A30 digital camera : FotoNation, a world-leading embedded imaging and connectivity solutions company for the digital photography industry, announced that its innovative patent-pending “Face Tracker” technology is now available in the newly announced Pentax Optio A30 digital camera. This latest Pentax digital camera incorporates FotoNation Face Tracker for the “Face Recognition Auto Focus and Auto Exposure” Function, which is automatically activated when using the camera in “Portrait Mode” to assure properly exposed portrait photos every time. FotoNation Face Tracker detects the location of faces and adjusts focus and exposure accordingly for optimal results.

The technology automatically focuses on faces regardless of where they appear in the photo frame. Exposure settings are instantly applied so that faces are never dark, even when taking photos in difficult backlighting. Especially important for shooting under poor lighting conditions and at night, FotoNation Face Tracker uses a radically new approach to identify and lock onto human faces in a camera’s preview image. Face Tracker follows one or multiple faces as they move around within the frame and automatically adjusts focus and exposure before the image is captured, ensuring that skin tones and lighting are reproduced with exceptional accuracy.
