  • Patent number: 10603576
    Abstract: An operating device includes: right and left hold sections to be held by a user, the right and left hold sections provided with first operating members; and a central section interconnecting the right and left hold sections. The operating device has a second operating member forming an upper surface of the central section. The second operating member includes a touch sensor located between the first operating members of the right and left hold sections, and is so supported as to be capable of vertical movement in response to a user's pressing-down operation. The second operating member is plate-like in shape, so that user's fingers can easily reach the second operating member in a condition where the user is holding the hold sections. As a result, operability of the operating device can be enhanced.

  • Publication number: 20190393670
    Abstract: A bandpass filter allows a light ray of a predetermined band including a wavelength band of a color of a laser beam, which is a target of detection, among light rays from a subject to pass therethrough. An imaging unit of a video camera captures the light ray passing through the bandpass filter. The controller analyzes a frequency for each brightness level of a video signal generated based on an imaging signal output from the imaging unit and detects a peak at which the frequency protrudes at a specific brightness level. The controller detects a trajectory of a straight light ray in a frame of the video signal. The controller detects that the laser beam is irradiated when the peak exists at a specific brightness level and the trajectory of the light ray exists in the frame.
