    I thought I'd try out the Face Recognition function on the G5 but am disappointed to find that it appears you have to register faces before it will work. It needs a face/faces to recognise in the first place.

    I thought it'd be a great tool for candids, save keep having to recompose all the time, but it seems it will not work on unregistered faces. Does anyone know a way round this at all?

    Well, when I go to turn on Face Recognition it won't let me unless I store a face first. What do you mean by focus mode please?
