* Most digital cameras feature face recognition and some of them[[note]]Fujifilm ones at least[[/note]] sllow to search for face images on those in memory, even if in both cases it's just to recognize generic smiles and faces, often failing quite embarrasingly (ie, mistaking the picture of a sunset for a portrait)

->''"Triela slowed only when her cyborg senses detected others ahead. She answered their cheerful greetings in Italian or German or French, comparing skin texture and facial construction against blurred images captured on CCTV in the aftermath of bomb atrocities, their acoustic pattern to voices plucked from the airwaves by the AISI."''

* Appropriatatly for a series that focuses on surveillance, this features in ''Series/PersonOfInterest'', mainly as one of the methods employed by the [[ArtificialIntelligence Machine]] but also used by Finch on occasion. In "S.N.A.F.U", the Machine's recognition software is suffering a glitch, and HilarityEnsues as the cast do their best impersonations of each others character to convey the Machine's confusion as it tries to sort out who is who in Team Machine.

This has become a popular crutch on most "[[PoliceProcedural procedural drama]]"-type shows. See also the step that comes before, pressing the EnhanceButton. Unlike the EnhanceButton, though, which is just nonsense in most cases no matter how good your technology is, incredibly powerful facial recognition software is something that could justifiably exist in futuristic or sci-fi settings.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/AViewToAKill'' has an example from before this trope was popularized. Suspecting Bond isn't the UpperClassTwit he's pretending to be, [[BigBad Zorn]] invites Bond to his office for a private discussion, where a hidden camera is linked to a KGB database. Zorn even gets Bond to look to the side (at a nearby painting) so the camera can get a profile shot of his face.

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted in the hard-SF series ''ComicBook/TheFuse''. The software exists, but criminals and political extremists are able to evade it by wearing "dazzle" makeup, which disrupts the planes of the face.

* Done hilariously in ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Fast 5]]'' where special agents run a picture from a stop light camera through a Facial Recognition System. They get a perfect match. On a guy wearing a ski mask.
