Wink Self-Timer

Canon has a number of new cameras with a feature called the "Wink Self-Timer". I was curious so I did a quick Google. You set the camera up to take a group picture, either on a tripod or sitting somewhere sturdy. Push the button half way and then wander around to get in the picture. When someone winks, the camera notices, and two seconds later will take a picture.

The computers in pocket cameras are becoming self aware. Soon the robots will take control. Until then, we will get better pictures, easier. Of course, I would be happier with a camera sensor that can capture a much wider dynamic range.
