  • Patent number: 11902660
    Abstract: Shake correction is performed using posture information corresponding to each frame of image data constituting a moving image on each frame, the frame having been subjected to processing of pasting to a celestial sphere model. Further, protrusion prevention processing for correcting an effective cropping area from each frame so that the effective cropping area does not protrude from a movable area in which the effective shake correction is maintained is performed on a requested cropping area to set an effective cropping area applied to each frame. Processing for generating an effective cropping area image is performed, the effective cropping area image being an image subjected to the shake correction and then projected onto a plane model from the celestial sphere model and being an image of the set effective cropping area.

  • Publication number: 20230296869
    Abstract: An optical scanning unit steers a light beam emitted from a laser diode in the main scanning direction by a polygon mirror. The laser diode, a collimator lens, an aperture, a first lens, the polygon mirror, and a condensing lens are sequentially placed in the optical system of the optical scanning unit. The laser diode emits a light beam in which divergent angles in intersecting two directions are different from each other. The direction in which the light beam divergent angle is large is aligned with the sub-scanning direction, and the direction in which the light beam divergent angle is small is aligned with the main scanning direction. The first lens has a first function to condense a beam in the sub-scanning direction and a second function to diffuse a beam in the main scanning direction.
