  • Publication number: 20220159186
    Abstract: A control method of an image pickup device is provided. The image pickup device includes a camera, a display, and a touch panel that is overlapped with the display and detects at least a sliding touch operation. The display displays a video image captured by the camera in first, second and third modes. The control method includes: switching to the second mode by a first sliding touch operation in a first direction on the touch panel in the first mode; switching to the third mode by a second sliding touch operation in the first direction in the second mode; switching to the second mode by a third sliding touch operation in a second direction in the third mode; and switching to the first mode by a fourth sliding touch operation in the second direction in the second mode. The second direction is substantially opposite to the first direction.

  • Publication number: 20200092479
    Abstract: An image pickup device includes a camera, a display to display an image being obtained by the camera, and a touch panel that overlaps the display and is capable of detecting a flick operation performed on the touch panel. While the display displays the image being obtained by the camera, a brightness of the display is changed from a first brightness to a second brightness by a flick operation on the touch panel from down to up in a vertical direction. The second brightness is brighter than the first brightness. While the display displays the image being obtained by the camera, a setting other than a setting of the brightness of the display is changed by a flick operation on the touch panel from left to right in a lateral direction.

  • Patent number: 10531000
    Abstract: An image pickup device includes a camera, a display, and a touch panel detects a user operation including a flick operation in first and second directions. The image pickup device has first, second and third imaging modes, in which the display displays a video image being obtained by the camera. After determining that the user operation is the flick operation, switching to the second imaging mode occurs by a first flick operation in the first direction in the first imaging mode. Switching to the first imaging mode occurs by a second flick operation in the second direction in the second imaging mode. Switching to the third imaging mode occurs by a third flick operation in the second direction in the first imaging mode. Switching to the first imaging mode occurs by a fourth flick operation in the first direction in the third imaging mode.

  • Patent number: 9648228
    Abstract: An image pickup apparatus performs at least one exposure adjusting operation on the image captured by the camera. While the display is displaying the image which the camera is capturing, the touch panel has a first region with a width, in a peripheral portion of the display, and a second region which is disposed at an inner side of the first region in the display. While the display is displaying the image which the camera is capturing, when the touch panel detects a touch in the second region, at least an exposure adjusting operation starts to be performed. After the exposure adjusting operation has started, and while the display is displaying the image which the camera is capturing, when the touch panel detects a touch in the first region, any operation relating to the exposure adjusting operation is not performed, and the started exposure adjusting operation is maintained.
