With AI Servo AF:
  • AF points are selected automatically in the AF area to keep tracking the face in focus.
  • When no faces are detected, AF points are selected in the AF to keep tracking the same color with the focused subject.
  • If a face is detected when tracking the subject other than the face, the focusing point may switch to the detected face.
