EVIL cameras get even more diabolical

An EVIL camera is an industry class: Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens. In other words, mirror-less (i.e., non-DSLR) but able to accommodate different lenses.
     Sony's new Alpha 3000 (about the cheapest camera with a APS-C sized sensor that you can buy) is such a camera, but with an unusual feature: its face detection option can be prioritized — a sinister (but fun!) twist from a company which knows all about how to be diabolical.
     From the manual:

So now you can now demote any relative you dislike to a blur at holiday gatherings without indiscriminately drinking yourself into a stupor — and later, if anyone asks, you can truthfully, if disingenuously, blame the camera.
