  • Patent number: 10587786
    Abstract: An imaging device (10) is configured by being provided with an image pickup element (40) where an imaging surface (41) having a concave surface facing an object side is formed, an imaging optical system (20) which forms an image on the imaging surface (41) in a range smaller than the imaging surface (41), and an oscillating drive section (30) which oscillating-drives the imaging optical system (20) so that a direction of an optical axis Z of the imaging optical system changes. The imaging element (40) captures a first formed by the imaging optical system (20) with a direction of the optical axis Z set to a first direction and a 2nd formed by the imaging optical system (20) with a direction of the optical axis Z set to a 2nd direction, in different regions in the imaging surfaces (41).

  • Publication number: 20190297270
    Abstract: An image-capturing apparatus includes: an optical system having a variable power function; microlenses; an image sensor having pixel groups each including pixels, receiving light having passed through the optical system and the microlenses at the pixel groups, and outputting a signal based on the received light; and an image processing unit generating an image focused on one point of an object among objects at different positions in an optical axis direction, based on the sensor signal output. If a range length in the optical axis direction specified by a focal length in which the optical system focuses on one point of a target object is longer than a length based on the object, the unit generates a first image focused on one point in the range, and if the range length is smaller, the unit generates a second image focused on one point outside and one within the range.
