Electronics company Sony has unveiled a camera for shutterbugs too slow to capture smiling subjects.
The Tokyo-based company said Wednesday it will release in late September its compact Cyber-shot T series cameras that are capable of detecting and snapping smiles.
When the user presses the shutter button, the camera begins capturing frames. Once the shutter button has been released, the camera will keep only frames in which the subject is smiling.
The camera will be priced at about $380 Cdn.
Sony says its "smile shutter" function, which can be turned off, allows the user to program the camera to capture wide smiles or shy grins.
