  • Patent number: 9137481
    Abstract: A non-transitory computer-readable storage medium stores an image processing program executable by a processor to reproduce images from an imaging signal supplied from an imaging sensor that captures subject light. The program includes instructions to (i) generate a first movie image focused to a first region set in a through-image displayed on a display unit based on the imaging signal supplied from the imaging sensor, and subsequently generate a second movie image focused to a second region, different from the first region, set in the through-image displayed on the display unit based on the imaging signal; (ii) perform image processing in linking portions of each of the first and second movie images in order to link the first movie image and the second movie image in time sequence of each movie image to generate compiled movie images; and (iii) control the display unit to display the compiled movie images.
