Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles Hi everybody, this is Gary Fong and I have the Sony a6300 here and I want to do a demonstration of how the Face Registration works. What we're going to do is show you the feature and then we're going to give it kind of a little gruelling test, ok? So in order to make the feature work, I'm gonna go to menu then, I'm going to go to the gear tab and pull down to number six and Face Registration. The way Face Registration works is that you can record someone's face in it will memorize it. Up to eight face can be shifted in priority order and I’m going to teach you how that works. This is really cool if you’re shooting a wedding. Maybe you’ll Face Register the bride, put her in the number one position, the groom would be in number two position, maybe the Maid of Honor would be a number three position and if there's a crowd of all of them together it will find the bride first if the bride's not in the photo it will find the number two position first. Then you can swap those around. I will give you a demonstration how that works. It’s a really cool feature because it will find those faces automatically for you. Alright, so, we're going to go to Face Registration and I'm gonna say New Registration. So now, we have Kyle here and I'm gonna take one picture. It says shoot fitting face into frame. Boom, ok. Register Face and Enter. Ok, so that is a New Registration. Now we have Jocelyn in, and she's going to be the New Registration so I'm gonna put it in right there, and then, so now we recorded that. Register Face, ok. So now that we have that we're going to do order exchanging. So you see in number one position, first person shot was Kyle, and number two position was Jocelyn, I can switch them around and see there is eight different spots here I can switch around so that Jocelyn is number one position. Now, let me show you how this works. Menu, and then we're going to go to the camera, and we're gonna turn on Face Recognition with Face Registration. We’re in camera tab six and under Smile/Face Detection. So, you see right here this one on top means Face Detection off and then right underneath that is the Kings Hat and the Kings Hat says that it's going to go to your list of the memorize faces and then put them in their priorities. Under the On or Off, that’s just any face that happens to be in and that's kind of cool if you're shooting a person in a crowd or something like that. Smile Detection we’ll get to you in just a little bit but right now let's put it on Register Faces, ok? Now what's happened here is of course Jocelyn’s here. Just go ahead and move around on the screen. Go toward me, walk off screen, off, and then come back on. Now you'll notice here when it comes back on-did you see when she walked off there was the Face Detection sprinkles. Go ahead and walk off again. See that? That was kind of cool. That's what would happen if you doing Subject Tracking. Come back on. Ok, so now it finds her, again. You can see just for a split split second it was active in the Phase Detection sensors. Now let’s bring Kyle in. So Kyle, go ahead and..ok..now we have two people. Going to have to change the tripod here. So you see right now that there's two squares and when I press the button down, it only goes on Jocelyn. Go ahead and move around Kyle. Walk toward me. Ok, so see he's not in focus but it stays on her. Now, Jocelyn walk toward me, and so, now it stays on Jocelyn. Go ahead and walk off screen. She walks off screen now it goes to Kyle because, remember Kyle’s number two position. How cool is that? Go ahead and walk back on, Jocelyn, and look toward me. So there we go. it’s back on Jocelyn. Now that you know that, i'm gonna go back and change the order of the faces. Now under Face Registration, gear tab six, I’m going to switch the order. Right now we're going to Order Exchanging, and then now you see the Jocelyn was a number one position. I'm gonna put Kyle in number one position. What will happen is when we go back to focus it will prioritize Kyle. The purple box is the box it is not going to track. When I hold this down, you see the green box goes over on Kyle. Kyle, go ahead and walk toward me, and then you're gonna be lower because you're so tall. Now go him walk backwards, and then go ahead and walk off screen. Now Jocelyn is in focus because Jocelyn was in the number two position. Go ahead and walk on screen again, Kyle. There we have it, Kyle goes back in focus. Kyle was the number one position. That's a demonstration with two people that look quite different. What happens when you have people that look very closely alike? so let's bring in Jocelyn’s sister, Megan, go ahead and jump out Kyle. Now here is a gray box around her sister. It doesn't know who this lady is. Right? It has no idea, but Jocelyn is in focus and goes to her because we had Face Registration on. Let's go ahead and then we're going to put Megan into the system. We’re going to store her face. Go ahead and jump off Jocelyn. I'm just gonna record Megan’s face. So, we'll go New Registration and then shoot fitting the face into the frame. Can come closer, just a tiny bit. There. Okay and there we go. Cannot register. Shoot again. I think you're not turned right toward me. Yeah, just like that get. Ok, Register Face. Enter. Now what happens is when we go to Order Exchanging, we have of course Kyle in first position and Megan in third. I'm gonna put her in first position. There, okay, and now Jocelyn is in third. Let's put you both on the screen and there we have it. What's going to happen now is-see the purple is around Jocelyn because she's not the one that is in first position. It's going to stay on Megan. Megan walk toward me, then off screen, and there she goes, and now it’s on Jocelyn. Megan come back in. Now it's on Megan. Walk toward me. Stay there. Kyle, jump in. I think Kyle was in number one position. Let's find out We’ll ask the camera. No Megan's in number one position. Because I put her there and we know that now. Jocelyn go in front of Megan so that you hide her face. Kyle, go behind Megan. Okay, now that he's gone, see? now we've gone back to Jocelyn. So what it does is, it remembers and the way it remembers Is very interesting, uh, Kyle just go ahead and jump out and then Megan and Jocelyn side-by-side So obviously these two look very alike. They're sisters. But the way that the camera is it measures the distance between the eyes, the nose and the chin and comes up with some value. Whatever that is, but it knows the difference between the two probably better than I do. So it would be interested if we had identical twins but it does know. Hold the button down, it's on green, Jocelyn walk towards me. Perfect. And go back. And now, that was Continuous High. I want to show you Continuous Plus. That was eight frames per second and that mimics having a mirror up. This is the brand new feature, Continuous Shooting High Plus. High Plus gets me into eleven frames per second. Jocelyn, you're gonna walk toward me and off the screen when I say go, ok? Go. Let’s see what happened there, and that was the eleven frames per second High Plus mode. So, see how the focus followed Jocelyn all the way across that sequence. That is Face Registration. A very, very handy if you're supposed to be shooting someone but especially for weddings. Bride first, groom second, or mother of the bride first. Sometimes that happens, Bride second. But anyway that's what that does and so when you're on you can just basically it will find the person that is of the highest priority and that's really cool. Like shooting a cocktail hour or something like that, or hate to say it, but group photos with a very wide open aperture. You can think of your own situations when you would want to have it know who the person is that is most important but that’s Face Registration. Cool demo.
