CanonCanon PowerShot SX240 HS camera with Face ID function : The Canon PowerShot SX240 HS is a 12.1 Megapixel ultra-compact camera with a high-quality powerful 20x Optical Zoom, Optical Image Stabilization and a stunning 25mm wide-angle lens. Powered by the DIGIC 5 image processor, it delivers amazing image quality at an affordable price tag. The PowerShot SX240 HS features 1080p Full HD video recording with stereo sound and a large 3-inch TFT Color LCD display with wide viewing angle. Sophisticated advancements include improved 'Smart Auto' mode that optimizes camera settings for 58 predefined shooting situations and Face ID function that prioritizes pre-registered faces.

Canon Face ID

Canon Face ID function
With new Face Identification (Face ID), your friends and family will always look their best in your pictures, even if they are in a large group or at the edge of the composition. Simply register up to 12 faces in the PowerShot SX240 HS camera and include their birthdays to enable some of the new age-related scenes added to the Smart Auto function. For example, when taking a picture of a sleeping baby, the Canon PowerShot camera will disengage the flash and audio cues in order to avoid disturbing its sleep and apply specific exposure settings to produce a similar result to the bright “high-key effect” portraits favored by professional photographers.

Similarly, in the case of a child over the age of two playing outdoors, the PowerShot SX240 HS camera will anticipate more movement and engages servo Auto-focus to ensure focus, then shoots a short high-speed burst to increase the chances of capturing a perfect moment. The Face ID function will also tag your photos with the names of your subjects, allowing you to search your image library by name for swifter browsing, both on the camera and on your Personal Computer using the supplied Image Browser EX software from Canon.
