Face detection is genuinely useful but smile detection? Cool, nonetheless. Here's the link.

Haha! Seems more of a gimmick to me and would make a better conversation piece than feature but who knows? Do you plan the review the Sony T200 Gordon?

I have it on my T200 but haven't gotten to messing with it yet. It's an interesting idea but am not sure how effective it would be in real life scenarios. Heck I barely even use Face Detection but have found it useful when handing the camera to someone else to guarantee better exposure.

As far as I'm concerned, Smile detection is pretty much a joke. People are always coming in to Best Buy wanting me to smile for them while they try out the smile detection and I cannot tell you how many times I smile for the camera and nothing happens. I'd be willing to say it takes roughly 20% of the time.

And if you think about it, when is this practical? If you have the camera detecting someone's face smiling you might as well take it yourself. Just my honest opinion.

Hi there - if you've not already seen it, we have a demo of smile shutter in our T70 review here:
