“Real-time Tracking is a new object tracking function that keeps the most challenging moving subject in focus.The ability to select any subject to be tracked while the shutter button is half-pressed provides new framing flexibility and allows the user to concentrate more fully on the image. If the subject is a person, AI is used to detect and keep track of the subject’s eye and face in real time for extremely high tracking precision.”
