Notes About Face Detection
• The camera’s ability to detect faces depends on a variety of factors, including the 
direction in which the faces are looking.
• The camera may be unable to detect faces in the following situations:
- When faces are partially hidden by sunglasses or otherwise obstructed
- When faces take up too much or too little of the frame
C
Viewing Images Taken Using Face Detection
During playback, the camera automatically rotates images according to the 
orientation of the faces that were detected at the time of shooting (except for 
images taken using Continuous (
A73) or Exposure bracketing (A73)).
