Re: D800 Face Detection in Viewfinder

I have found that the "auto area" focus mode works quite well with catching little ankle biters. I have a 3 and a 1.5 yr old and it seems to recognize the faces very quickly, with primary focus almost always on the closest eye. I have not had much use for live view with my kids as it is too slow, but the viewfinder is super fast.
