View Full Version : Face detection during video

04-04-14, 09:48 AM
I have recently bought a D610 and a refurbished D3200 for my father. I am not likely to make much use of the video function however was showing him how it works. As far as I can see neither camera is set to face detection yet as soon as the focus point movies over a face it locks on and will not move unless I move it manually with the rear pad If I don't do this the focus point ends up at the edge of the frame as I continue to pan. The 610 seem worse as it detected a face from a distance and jumps to it Can this be changed or am I doing something wrong
many thanks
Ps using full time autofocus in live view mode

Is the face detection not explained in the handbook, non of my cameras have this so I can't help. Sorry if yours is one of the cameras without a book in the box, you may have to down load one.
