I don't trust face detect, the edge of the face with the background often has a higher contrast than the features of the face. Sharp ears and blurry eyes are no good to me.

Fire a few shots off with the spot focus on the face (eye if you are close enough) and you'll have a choice of sharp shots AND expressions. Also if you use "DMF" you'll have the zoom in fine focus on the right area.

Try 2 shots with flexible spot to get the shot well enough and avoid subject from getting bored then fine tune the 3rd if she is still there!


Olympus gives you not only "eye" detection, but the choice of which eye, l. or r. !
