  7. I Have Realized That In Old Digital Cameras, Unique Devices Help To Target Automatically. The Actual Sensors Connected With Some Camcorders Change In In The Area Of Contrast, While Others Employ A Beam Associated With Infra-red (IR) Light, Especially In Low Lumination. Higher Specs Cameras At Times Use A Mix Of Both Methods And May Have Face Priority AF Where The Digicam Can 'See' A New Face While Focusing Only Upon That. Many Thanks For Sharing Your Ideas On This Blog. agenify
