Notes & Features: Based on the body of the Nikon D200 digital SLR. Includes Face Detection in playback mode. The camera can optionally detect up to ten faces in each image, and zoom straight in to each face for confirmation of pose, focus, exposure, etc. Offers a "live preview" mode that allows for image framing and focusing using the LCD display for period of up to 60 seconds at a time. During the live preview, the optical viewfinder is unuseable as the viewfinder optical path is blocked by the reflex mirror being raised to allow light to reach the imager instead.
