As shutterbugs, we are all too familiar with "mode" settings in a camera. Ever heard of "mood" setting ?

Well, Canon has come up with a smart's artificial intelligence tracks all moving faces within sight and snaps the picture when smiles and bright eyes peak!

But it will be a while before this camera hits the streets.Who said "cheese"!. Smile, the camera is waiting for you! yes,and you too, chimp!!

the model was exhibited at Canon Expo 2005 in New York last month!

Well, what next...Nikkon with one that tracks "grumpy" faces! and olympus...with one that reads the brain waves ?

Oh NO, another annoying automatic function... And quite useless too, I find.

What do you want to take random pictures of smiling faces for, disregarding composition, exposure etc.?

Another useless gimmick, I say!

Hey, if that camera does the dishes and the laundry, it is not useless! Don't you feel like the price they charge for the gimmicky things, the gadget should help out around the house? At least do something worthwhile?
