  • Publication number: 20230005241
    Abstract: Provided is an imaging apparatus capable of continuously imaging a natural video even though brightness is changed. In an imaging apparatus in which an exposure condition is set based on a characteristic of a transmittance control element, a first exposure condition range is calculated based on photometry of the imaging apparatus. Determination is made whether or not the calculated first exposure condition range is included in a second exposure condition range where a control range acquired by the transmittance control element is applicable. In a case where the calculated first exposure condition range is not included in the second exposure condition range, the exposure condition of the imaging apparatus is changed such that the first exposure condition range is included in the second exposure condition range.
