  • Patent number: 11910115
    Abstract: An imaging element incorporates a reading portion, a storage portion, a processing portion, and an output portion. The reading portion reads out image data obtained by imaging from a photoelectric conversion element at a first frame rate. The storage portion stores the image data read out from the photoelectric conversion element. The processing portion processes the image data. The output portion outputs the image data processed by the processing portion at a second frame rate. The processing portion detects first image data indicating a specific image from the image data stored in the storage portion. The output portion outputs second image data based on image data different from the first image data detected by the processing portion in the image data of a plurality of frames. The second frame rate is a frame rate lower than the first frame rate.
