Re: XC15 Face Detection Greyed Out

Hello rvonmaur, 

I understand that face detection settings seem to be grayed out in the menu of your XC15.  

There are certain things which will make Face Detection not available:  

- When shutter speed is slower than 1/30

- When shooting mode is set to SCN and night scene, low light or fireworks is selected.  

- When fast/ slow motion is set to [x1/4]. 

- In camera mode, when drive mode is set to AF continuous. 

- When the Camera Setup> Rolling Shutter Reduction setting is set to ON.
