  • Patent number: 7768553
    Abstract: In a photographing apparatus, image data obtained when an instruction for capturing a still image is issued during capturing of a moving picture is saved in a first recording medium, and a still image is generated based on the image data saved in the first recording medium and is recorded on a second recording medium different from the first recording medium when the capturing of the moving picture has been completed. The photographing apparatus includes a display control unit configured to display, during the capturing of the moving picture, a first icon indicating the second recording medium as a still-image recording destination and an indicator indicating the number of still images for which image data can be saved in the first recording medium, and to display an indicator indicating that the still image is recorded on the second recording medium when the capturing of the moving picture has been completed.
