    I dug eye controlled focus

    Had it on my Canon eos somethingerother. Then digital happened. Whatever happened to eye controlled focus? I thought it was a pretty good idea but then I didn't know much back then. :biggrin:

    It isn't technology. It is wishful thinking. None of this actually exists. It is like me designing a fast-than-light spaceship to travel the universe. It will look really cool, there is just no way it can actually be built.

    The Canon technology was a lot more limited. All it let you control was the focus point. On the original versions, which had only 9 AF spots, it worked pretty well, and I actually found it useful. On the EOS 3, which had 35 AF spots (IIRC), it wasn't so accurate. Users didn't seem to think it was worth paying extra for, so Canon dropped it.

    But technology has changed a lot. I can easily imagine better accuracy and potentially useful features based on this.

    As far as IRIS recognition, it's in use every day around the world. Programming a computer (which is what modern cameras are) to change settings based on the identify of the user is trivial. Using IRIS scanning to identify that user is easy (though perhaps not cheap).
