About the new Pentax Optio 20
"A Face Recognition function automatically detects and focuses on  
faces, then sets the optimum exposure.  Smile Capture detects the key  
facial expression of happy people and releases the shutter  
automatically.  Blink Detection reports to the user whether any  
subjects closed their eyes in an image, so that the shot may be  
recaptured if necessary"

Smarter cameras-dumber photographers?

I can see this irritating the crap out of me, but my mom would love  
this technology;^)
