  • Patent number: 8687106
    Abstract: A mobile phone apparatus 10 is equipped with a camera module 36 including an image sensor (52), an AE evaluation circuit (60), etc. When a camera function is executed, an exposure is adjusted such that an exposure evaluated value is equal to an exposure target value, whereby, an AF controlling processing is executed. For example, when a shutter key is operated, the exposure target value is changed to an exposure target value for AF control being smaller than an exposure target value for normal photographing. Furthermore, a frame rate is increased such that the exposure evaluated value having a correlation to the frame rate is smaller than the exposure target value in response to the change of the exposure target value. Then, the AF controlling processing is executed on the basis of the image data every frame output from the image sensor (52) at the increased frame rate.

  • Publication number: 20120188440
    Abstract: A mobile phone apparatus is provided with a camera module 36 having an image sensor and an exposure evaluating circuit. When a camera function is turned on, an image sensor outputs image data, and the exposure evaluating circuit performs AE controlling processing based on an exposure time in correspondence with a luminance evaluated value of the image data. Also, in a case that the ambient is dark, and thus, illumination of an object is low, that is, in a case that the luminance evaluated value of the image data is less than a predetermined value, an LED 40 emits light as a flash in imaging. At this time, the AE controlling processing is suspended to thereby change the current exposure time into a predicted exposure time. Then, the AE controlling processing is started regarding the changed predicted exposure time as a starting point of the control.
