Still can't activate Face Detection
4 months ago

I posted recently about problems trying to get Face Detection with my A77ii.  I tried doing what was suggested, but to no avail.  I then 'chatted' with a Sony tech who told me it only works when the subject is smiling!  I said that didn't seem logical as you may want to focus on a non-smiling face.  He said I could turn off the function if I didn't like the way it was implemented!  Reading the manual and guide, it sounds like you can do face detection with or without registering faces.  If you register a face (something I can't seem to do), that face is supposed to be the priority face.  Otherwise any face will be chosen.  All that seems like a mute point, because I can't seem to make it function at all.  Either I'm missing something, or my camera is defective.  I hope it's the former.  Any suggestions?
