  • Patent number: 10810776
    Abstract: It is intended to easily generate an edited image from which various and natural feelings are obtained. Depth information of pixels in an image which is set as a processing object is used therefor. Reference depth information serving as a comparison reference for the depth information of pixels in image processing is set. In addition, an image editing process is performed using the reference depth information and the depth information of the pixels of the image which is set as the processing object.

  • Patent number: 10234748
    Abstract: There is provided an imaging device including an image sensor, and an outer case in which the image sensor is disposed. A shooting button configured to photograph a subject is disposed on an outer peripheral surface of the outer case. When an intersection line between a horizontal surface including a center of the outer case in a vertical direction and the outer peripheral surface of the outer case is set as a horizontal line, the shooting button is positioned close to the horizontal line above the horizontal line. A zoom knob configured to change photographic magnification is positioned on a same side as the shooting button in a horizontal direction.

  • Publication number: 20180364549
    Abstract: Functionality corresponding to an imaging situation of an imaging apparatus is improved. The present technology includes an imaging apparatus attachment portion, to/from which an imaging apparatus is attachable/detachable; a control device attachment portion that holds a control apparatus capable of controlling the imaging apparatus; and a grip portion that is coupled to the imaging apparatus attachment portion and the control device attachment portion and is held by fingers. Accordingly, the grip portion can be held by fingers in the state where the imaging apparatus is attached to the imaging apparatus attachment portion and the control apparatus is held by the control device attachment portion. This makes it possible to improve the functionality corresponding to an imaging circumstance of the imaging apparatus.

  • Publication number: 20180356711
    Abstract: To improve the convenience of handling. It includes a communication unit capable of wirelessly communicating with an imaging apparatus; a display control unit that displays information regarding the imaging apparatus on the basis of communication with the imaging apparatus; and an attachable/detachable portion that is engageable with a locking portion of an accessory and attachable/detachable to/from the locking portion of the accessory. Accordingly, since it can be wirelessly connected to the imaging apparatus and control can be performed on the imaging apparatus in a state where the control apparatus is locked to the accessory, it is possible to improve the convenience of handling.

  • Patent number: 9661231
    Abstract: An imaging device includes a communication circuit that transmits an image data to an external display device, and an image sensor. The imaging device also includes an outer case in which the image sensor is disposed, and a coupling a coupling portion disposed at a rear side of the imaging device, where the rear side is opposite side from an light incident side of the image sensor. A large-diameter portion and an inclined portion are provided in the outer case, in a manner that the diameter of the inclined portion is reduced according to approach from the large-diameter portion to the rear side, and an image taking button is disposed on an outer peripheral surface of the large-diameter portion.
