In the process of documentary/news photography I had had to following and photoraphy people who ccome out of a building and walk directly to a waiting vehicle. I was wondering if anyone in the situation have used the face detection system to keep focus on the person walking? I almost never use this feature unless I am recording video when the individual is walking. Knowing that too many faces could be an issue I was just wondering if anyone has tried this?

This is going to depend on several factors. Motion, lighting, the lens, and number of people. A camera with face detection will do a pretty good job in most situations, but it is possible to fool it if you have a large number of people moving in entourage fashion as a group.

You're welcome. You should definitely try the feature in some mock scenarios to see how well it peforms. People coming off a bus or subway. People coming out of an elevator.
