Title:
IMAGING APPARATUS AND CONTROL METHOD THEREOF
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2006186592
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide a technology capable of photographing a high quality image at a low cost while correcting camera-shake through the adoption of an electronic image segmentation system in the case of photographing an object with low luminance/low illuminance.

A control method of an imaging apparatus with a blur correction function for correcting blurs among a plurality of images by selecting parts of the images on the basis of the correlation of the images picked up by an imaging means includes: a blur quantity detection step of detecting a blur quantity of the imaging apparatus; an exposure control step of controlling the imaging means so as to expose the imaging means for a first exposure time when the blur quantity is smaller than a predetermined quantity and controlling the imaging means so as to expose the imaging means for a second exposure time when the blur quantity is greater than the predetermined quantity; and a summation step of summating each of a plurality of image signals after the blur correction and outputting the summated image signal as one image.
