The Intelligent Auto mode of the camera recognizes scenes and lighting conditions automatically, and then adjusts the settings accordingly. This results in images of superior quality, with clearer faces, natural skin tone, and less blur. The Face Detection technology can instantly recognize faces, and even tell the difference between a child and an adult's face. It can track up to eight faces at once, and adjusts the flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to give properly lit photos. When compared to a competing camera, the Samsung ST80, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W390 has some advantages, such as face detection.
