Cameras with blink/smile recognition

E1050In the never ending quest to find the feature that sells a bucketload, General Electric is to launch a range of compact cameras in the UK with blink and smile recognition. The models will warn when someone in the photo you just took was blinking, so you can take another snap. They will also focus on smiling faces.
No definite pricing on these yet, but reghardware are claiming prices of £60 for the 7 megapixel A735, £120 for the 8 megapixel G2 and £180 for the 12 megapixel E1235. The 10 megapixel E1050 is probably the most interesting at £200, with a built in GPS receiver for geotagging and a HDMI port.

This makes me wonder what gimick the phone makers will try next to differentiate their products. Maybe the credibility filter, to remove anyone too ugly or embarrasing. Or how about a parental filter that removes nudity, drunken behaviour and obscene hand gestures so you can show your parents the lad/ladette holiday shots.
