  • Patent number: 10032482
    Abstract: A CPU extracts still images from image files recorded at predetermined time intervals among still images and moving images arbitrarily recorded in a predetermined period such as one day, and generates a time-lapse moving image by taking these extracted images as frames. That is, in addition to still images, even when a moving image file is recorded at timing corresponding to a predetermined time interval, a frame at the timing corresponding to the predetermined time interval in the moving image file is extracted, and adopted as a frame of a time-lapse moving image to be generated.

  • Patent number: 9019388
    Abstract: The present invention prevents unnecessary imaging operations when imaging is not required to be performed. In the present invention, a display panel includes a touch panel provided on the top surface thereof. An image sensor of an imaging section captures an image. A gyro sensor detects the movement of an imaging device. When the movement of the imaging device is detected by the gyro sensor, a control section prohibits an imaging operation by the imaging section in response to a touch operation performed on the touch panel. Conversely, when the movement of the imaging device is not detected by the gyro sensor, the control section performs an imaging operation by the imaging section in response to a touch operation on the touch panel.
