I agree -- most of the time.

I can just imagine, though, me wanting to grab a certain non-smiling  
moment and the camera wanting to wait for the smile. I wonder if it  
complains about closed eyes on sleeping babies.

Great idea, but I fear hangups for those of us who may find that the  
perfect moment doesn't include the smile.  Don't always want the  
camera second-guessing me. Raeher like Word insisting that I want to  
make a list every time I type a name that starts with an initial.
