    I was polishing my car this morning and looking at the shine (and stone chips and scratches :() thinking to my self, would the face detection mode on my phone would work off my paint.
    It did not.

    Its shiny but not shiny enough, I then started to wonder if any of the profesional and people with really good paint work was able to do it.

    I guess the challenge is this, can your camera with face detection detect your face in the reflection of the paint work and take an image?

    Face detection is a mode you set on your camera or phone (if they have this option) and it will detect a face, focus on it and then take the image.

    I guess its the ultimate test in paint shinyness. :)

    Would be rather difficult unless you had a second person as you'd be looking through a viewfinder I would imagine therefore your face would/could be hidden!

    Second person would be possible or unless your camera had a screen rather than viewfinder, mines an EOS 400D with no option to use the screen as a viewfinder, so no chance there. Maybe the iPhone 4 does it??
