The Seoul-based electronics manufacturer is proud to boast that this compact digital camera also sports Samsung's very own "intelligent face recognition" technology, which detects the subject's face, automatically adjusts exposure etc. to ensure better composition and image quality in shots featuring people. Just like every other camera maker's face-recognition system...

The i70 is available in the UK now for around £200 inc VAT.
