Pre-PMA 2008: Perhaps you've never heard of FotoNation but chances are if you bought a digital camera in the past couple of years it may well be using technology developed by the Burlingame, CA based firm. Automatic red-eye reduction, face recognition, smile shutter...get the idea? Now these clever folks have combined that old recipe for disaster - the self-timer - with the latest advances in facial recognition to create FaceTime™. Essentially this delays the countdown until the photographer has positioned themselves in the frame. It will recognize a group of people and only start the timer once that final straggler reaches position. Clever stuff and they will be holding demonstrations at PMA too.
