IMAGING APPARATUS AND CONTROL METHOD THEREFOR
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2013211892
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To display an auxiliary image by distinguishing an area overlapping a subject area that has a predetermined characteristic and other areas when displaying an auxiliary image in an image area or focusing area that satisfies a predetermined luminance condition.

An imaging apparatus comprises: an imaging section; a display section; a display control section configured to display a pick-up image, picked up by the imaging section, onto the display section; a first detecting section configured to detect a first area formed from pixels of predetermined luminance, from the pick-up image; and a second detecting section configured to detect a second area having a predetermined characteristic, from the pick-up image. The display control section causes the display section to display an image indicating the second area, in a first display form. If the second area overlaps the first area, the display control section causes the display section to display an image indicating the second area, in a second display form different from the first display form.
