  • Patent number: 10082770
    Abstract: A communication apparatus comprises a communicator that receives a standard time from an external apparatus, a manipulation receiver that receives a time correction action from a user, and a controller that performs a timing processing for clocking time and a time correction processing for correcting the time clocked by the timing processing, on the basis of the standard time received by the communicator, or on the basis of the time correction action received by the manipulation receiver. The controller changes processing contents of the time correction processing until a prescribed time interval has elapsed, when the time clocked by the timing processing is corrected on the basis of the time correction action received by the manipulation receiver.

  • Patent number: 10075631
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus which can take shots sequentially by self-timer. The imaging apparatus, in response to input of a user's start operation to perform self-timer shooting, plays back a first voice file including a voice of a predetermined playback time period one time, the first voice file including a voice providing guidance to prepare for shooting, determines whether the first voice file has been played back to completion one time, and performs shooting one time when it is determined that the first voice file has been played back to completion one time, without performing a time-check function. The imaging apparatus repeats playback of the first voice file and performs shooting a predetermined number of times.
