S1800 and "Smile detection"

Hi

I'm enjoying my Finepix S1800, and found a "bug" in the "Smile detection" scenery. It's really fun, all you have to do is select "SP" and in the Photo menu, select the scenery "Smile". Point the camera to a person and if she/he smiles, you will have the photographic proof of that. No need to push any button, the camera will work by itself focusing and shooting.

I took a dozen photos using smile detection with my kids, but it doesn't works with my smiles, only with the kid's smile. I have a theory to explain this, but I wanna hear yours first.

Anyone that has a S1800 or another camera with smile detection, has the same problem?

Thanks, and sorry for the "engrish"...
