Let’s Talk Eye-controlled Autofocus On Canon Cameras

Let’s Talk Eye-controlled Autofocus On Canon Cameras
An image from Canon's patent application for eye-controlled autofocus

Recently a Canon patent application was spotted that discussed technologies for an eye-controlled autofocus system. Something Canon already offered back in the film days with the Canon EOS 3.

Taking inspiration from the above patent, DPReview TV’s Chris and Jordan consider what a modern eye-controlled AF system might mean to photographers. The following topics are discussed in the 5 minutes video below:

  • The Canon EOS 3
  • Eye-controlled AF
  • Eye-controlled AF challenges
  • How a new eye-controlled AF system could work
  • Selecting faces and eyes
  • Do we need updated eye-controlled AF?

Enjoy.
