  • Publication number: 20200221050
    Abstract: A system control unit consecutively images a subject by driving based on a global shutter method, divides captured image data obtained by the imaging into a plurality of areas, and each time each area is generated, compares the generated area with the same area as the area in the captured image data generated by the imaging performed before the imaging, and detects a moving object from the area based on a result of the comparison. Based on a change in position of the detected moving object, the system control unit predicts a timing at which a trigger range TR set in the captured image overlaps with the moving object, and performs automatic imaging in a frame period that includes the timing.
