  • Publication number: 20180220071
    Abstract: The plurality of captured images are stored as original linages in the image storage unit. A display region to be displayed in an enlarging manner in the panoramic images is set. It is determined whether or not the display region is in an imaging range of the original image. In a case where NO is determined, the display region is trimmed from the panoramic image and displayed on the display unit in an enlarging manner, and in a case where it is determined that the display region is in an imaging range of the original image, a corresponding region corresponding to the display region is trimmed from the original image and displayed on the display unit.

  • Patent number: 9769391
    Abstract: Provided is an imaging device capable of expanding the dynamic range and eliminating differences in level occurring in low luminance regions between segments having different transmittances. A number of high luminance pixels calculation section calculates the number of high luminance pixels for each segment, on the basis of pre-image data obtained through pre-imaging while all the segments of a light modulation element have high transmittances. A main control section determines, as a dimming target segment, a segment having a number of high luminance pixels equal to or greater than a first number of pixels. A low luminance pixel specifying section specifies low luminance pixels among the pixels corresponding to the dimming target segment. A gain correction section performs gain correction on pixel signal values of the low luminance pixels, with a gain value corresponding to a ratio of the high transmittance to the low transmittance.

  • Patent number: 9723207
    Abstract: Provided is an imaging device that prevents glare resulting from light that leaks out from a subject display area of a display section in an OVF mode. A finder device can be switched between the OVF mode and an EVF mode. A subject display area and an information display area are set in an EVFLCD. In the OVF mode, nothing is displayed in the subject display area of the EVFLCD, and an information image is displayed in the information display area. An EVF shutter is set such that the light transmittance of a first area, which corresponds to the subject display area, becomes a low transmittance and the light transmittance of a second area, which corresponds to the information display area, becomes a high transmittance. The first area, which is set at low transmittance, blocks light that leaks from the subject display area.
