A6000 and Face Detection
9 months ago

I wonder if one of the lucky few A6000 owners could help answer a question for me, and that is, what autofocus area modes does face detection work in? The reason I ask is, all things equal I gravitate toward spot focus so that I can focus and recompose my shots. At the same time, I have young kids running around, so it is nice to have face recognition constantly on so that I can quickly fire off some snaps of them. With my A55 this isn't a problem as spot focus with face detection turned on is supported. With my NEX-5R though, the only autofocus area mode that supports face recognition is multi which bugs me to no end.

So, does anyone know if the A6000 supports face detection in all focus area modes?
