    Hi all,

    I have a query about using face detect. When more than 1 face is detected the camera decides which is the priority (green square) - can I select which face is the main priority of several faces (white squares). Or if there is no way to change it will using the face recognition function mean that my own child is always the main point of focus in a group of kids?

    You can use "Face Recog." to program your child's face.

    See here for a quick example (search for "Face Recognition"): DMC-GX1 | PRODUCTS | LUMIX | Digital Camera | Panasonic Global

    In the example, the first photo doesn't know who to focus on, so it probably selected the closest person. In the second example, the system recognized "Ally", so it focused on her.
