  • Publication number: 20220150421
    Abstract: A sub imaging apparatus 60 used by a user generates a sub captured image by imaging a subject OB. A main imaging apparatus 20 of which an imaging direction can be changed by a camera platform 40 is remotely controlled by the sub imaging apparatus 60 to image the subject imaged by the sub imaging apparatus 60 so as to generate a main captured image with an angle of view different from that of the sub captured image. An image combination section included in the sub imaging apparatus 60 generates a display image by combining the sub captured image generated by the sub imaging apparatus 60 with the main captured image generated by the main imaging apparatus 20. A display section included in the sub imaging apparatus 60 displays the display image generated by the image combination section. Using the sub imaging apparatus 60, the user may cause the main imaging apparatus 20 away from the sub imaging apparatus 60 to image a desired subject easily.

  • Publication number: 20160028055
    Abstract: Erroneous insertion of a battery into an imaging device is prevented. In a battery loading and unloading mechanism, a battery 2 is formed with projecting portions at longitudinal both ends of a back surface and along the back surface, the back surface being a surface opposite to an insertion surface of the battery, whereby even the battery formed in a flat rectangular parallelepiped and having the almost-square main surface can be prevented from being erroneously inserted into the device. The projecting portion has an inclined surface acutely inclined with respect to the back surface, and when the battery is unloaded from the device, unloading of the battery from the device is accelerated by the inclined surface undergoing contact pressure of the retaining means.
