Although the ideal angle is for subjects to be looking straight at the camera, SAFR can recognize faces that deviate from the ideal angle by quite a bit. Even subjects in a 90° profile pose can be matched against a database of identities, though with a reduced accuracy. The best recognition attempts generally occur at angles of -30° to +20°  pitch (down/up), -40° to +40° yaw (left/right), and -10° to +10° roll.
