Some digital cameras claim to have a feature called intelligent face recognition and intelligent scene recognition, wherein they automatically identify the primary object you’re trying to shoot and give extra significance to that object and less focus to rest of the objects around. Recently I realized that this “intelligent scene recognition” is not intelligent enough.
There were some papayas outside the window and I made an attempt to photograph the same. In the first shot, as you see below, the intelligent scene recognizer decided that it is the window grill that I am trying to shoot and subsequently focused on the window grill, while blurring the papayas in the background.
I do not have clear idea how the image sensing and subsequent decisions are processed by the camera software. Probably whatever first layer of obstacle it encounters is being considered as object of importance.
Anyway, after manual intervention I was able to make the camera focus on the right object and ignore the window grills.
