  • Publication number: 20220247937
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus includes a lens on which light from one subject is incident, a spectral prism including a first surface reflecting, at a first reflectance, first light having a first wavelength, and a second surface reflecting, at a second reflectance, having a second wavelength, a first imaging unit capturing a first image of the subject at a first depth of field based on the first light reflected by the first surface, a second imaging unit capturing a second image of the subject at a second depth of field based on the second light reflected by the second surface, a third imaging unit capturing a third image of the subject at a third depth of field based on third light transmitted through the first surface or the second surface, and a signal processing unit synthesizing the first image, the second image, and the third image, and outputting the synthesized image.

  • Patent number: 11050941
    Abstract: A camera device is equipped with at least one imaging unit for imaging a subject, a rotary motor for rotating the imaging unit at a prescribed rotation speed, an output unit for outputting images taken by the imaging unit, and a body which incorporates the imaging unit, the rotary motor, and the output unit. The output unit outputs at least one image, among the images, taken at an imaging position where the imaging unit and the subject are approximately parallel with each other.

  • Patent number: 9405272
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a fuser unit which includes a heat roller and a pressure roller; a duct which is formed in a long shape in a direction along an axis of the heat roller, is disposed in the vicinity of the fuser unit along the axis of the heat roller, and is exhausted by an exhaust fan which is provided on one end side in a long-side direction; an exhaust port which is opened to a first side wall of the fuser unit side of the duct and causes the fuser unit and the duct to communicate with each other; and a planar filter which is attached to an inner wall surface of the duct. The filter includes a filter base material having an irregular surface shape in which ditches and convex portions are alternately disposed; and a frame which is bonded to both ends orthogonal to an irregularity direction of the filter base material, the convex portion of the filter base material protrudes from the frame, and the convex portion of the filter base material is bonded or stuck to the inner wall surface.
