Canon's Wink Detection

Good for: Remote-controlling your camera without a remote

Many of today's cameras have a smile-detection feature, which fires the shutter as soon as a subject in the frame grins. This year sees another threat to your camera's remote and self-timer: Canon's Wink Detection feature (found in the new PowerShot SX210 IS, SD1400 IS, and SD3500 IS), which, as its name suggests, snaps a photo as soon as someone in front of the lens winks. We haven't had a chance to test it yet, but we're hoping that it puts a slight delay between the wink and the shutter's firing. Otherwise, everyone will end up looking like Popeye.
