  • Publication number: 20190293902
    Abstract: A lens barrel and camera moves a lens in the optical axis direction at a high speed. This lens barrel is provided with: a first electromagnetic drive unit; a first lens holding frame, which holds a first lens, and moves the first lens in the optical axis direction by means of the first electromagnetic drive unit; a second electromagnetic drive unit; and a second lens holding frame, which holds a second lens, and moves the second lens in the optical axis direction by means of the second electromagnetic drive unit. The first lens holding frame is disposed on the inner circumference side of the second lens holding frame.

  • Patent number: 10290207
    Abstract: An electronic device may include a position detecting unit that detects a position; a time detecting unit that detects a time; a communicating unit that communicates with a first device provided separately from the position detecting unit and the time detecting unit; and an instructing unit that instructs, via the communicating unit, a first detecting unit provided to the first device to perform detection according to a detection result of the position detecting unit and the time detecting unit. An electronic device may include a position detecting unit that detects a position; a time detecting unit that detects a time; a physical amount detecting unit that detects a physical amount of an ambient environment according to a detection result of the position detecting unit and the time detecting unit; and a human detecting that performs detection about human according to a detection result of the physical amount detecting unit.
