The Olympus Face and Food Recognition Systems

By October 29, 2015 Backroads No Comments

The #OlympusBackRoads project has passed the 3000km mark, with many more stops to go. Riding the back roads of a sparsely populated country is fascinating, and sometimes frustrating. The search for food, other than petrol station fare, can be a challenge. But randomly riding around in the back streets of Sandnes between two stops was worth the mileage.

I found an excellent bowl of home made pho from Loan Thi Kieu Phan at the appropriately named Pho Vietnam restaurant. My excuse for attempted food-blogging? The photo is another example of how well the Olympus face recognition system deals with difficult, mixed light.

Back street food in Sandnes, Norway: An excellent bowl of home made pho from Loan Thi Kieu at the appropriately named Pho Vietnam restaurant. And another example of how the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mk II face recognition system deals with difficult, mixed light. Here', there's overcast daylight through a window behind me, and various interesting light sources inside the room. The camera sets focus, exposure and white balance correctly anyway. 2.8/7-14mm @ 7mm, f/2.8 1/30 sec, ISO 200.
