  • Patent number: 10634826
    Abstract: An image capturing device includes a main body, at least one light source, a lens, and at least one first light shielding structure. The light source disposed at the main body is suitable for providing a light beam to an outside of the main body. The lens disposed at the main body is suitable for capturing a light entering the lens from the outside of the main body. The first light shielding structure is disposed at the main body. The light beam turns into an actual output light beam after being shielded by the first light shielding structure. The first light shielding structure shields the light beam in a vertical direction more than it shields the light beam in a horizontal direction, so an actual vertical light emitting angle of the actual output light beam is smaller than an actual horizontal light emitting angle of the actual output light beam.
