    I have noticed that in video cameras, unique devices help to concentrate automatically. Those kind of sensors with some cams change in in the area of contrast, while others work with a beam with infra-red (IR) light, especially in low lumination. Higher spec cameras oftentimes use a combination of both models and may have Face Priority AF where the video camera can ‘See’ any face and focus only upon that. Thanks for sharing your thinking on this site.
