Then, further specify in digital camera as constituted above the osd function that uses as user interface.

In the present embodiment, can judge the setting of pattern that the user has set etc. by the icon display of having used osd function.Here, do not carry out under the state of setting operation the user, with the automatic mode of conditions of work such as automatic setting shooting condition more or to take to give tacit consent to the method for determining conditions of work such as shooting condition be prerequisite, when operating change by the setting of the predefined like this automatic mode of device, can judge the setting of having changed by the user.In other words, by the setting of automatic mode or acquiescence, can carry out suitable shooting under most situation, when change setting, the user has special intention and sets, and may cause the failure of shooting, so need to consider this judgement.

Fig. 2 is icon has been amplified in expression on LCD10 by the osd function of the digital camera of execution mode a schematic diagram.Carry out the normal demonstration that icon does not become obstacle on the picture 30a, amplify the icon that has shown before picture 30b represents to take.When setting operation, used the icon display that to judge the osd function that the user sets, in the past, shown in the picture 30a among Fig. 2, consider that the position is not so that the image of taking pictures (background image) of the camera of the bottom of display frame hinders icon, the end that is presented at picture (in addition, three icons shown in the picture 30a among Fig. 2 all are to operate by the user according to default setting to have changed the shooting condition of setting, in this example, the expression photoflash lamp forbids 31, distant view 32, continuous shooting 33).Thereby, under the situation of small-sized display, owing to be difficult to see clearly icon, so wrong setting in the photographical condition also can be missed.

Therefore, in the present embodiment, showing when operating imposing a condition of having changed by the user, shown in the picture 30b among Fig. 2, the major part of the covering background image (image of taking pictures of camera) by can fully judging setting content (for example, size shown in the picture 30a among Fig. 2 is amplified 2~4 times) icon 31L, 32L, the demonstration of 33L, can eliminate the problems referred to above and improve visual identity.

To be kept in the setting memory 25 of CPU13 storage control data by the condition that has changed for the input operation of operating portion 14, up to power supply disconnect or by next input operation change setting till keep having changed shooting (work) condition of setting by user's operating and setting.Thereby, when CPU13 shows in the amplification of icon, set memory 25 and judge whether have the user to set, under the situation of the result of determination that has obtained having data there, specify according to setting content and will amplify the icon of demonstration, and will be used to carry out the order that this demonstrations controls and send to OSD control part 22.OSD control part 22 is accepted this order, and shows employed icon data from the amplification that ROM reads indication, and outputs to digital signal processing circuit 6.In addition, also can be by show the mode of the data of usefulness according to the normal amplification that shows that employed icon data is asked by calculation process.

In the timing that the amplification of carrying out icon shows, when having carried out setting operation, confirm whether operation is correctly carried out, but as mentioned above, owing to till power supply disconnects, keep last setting,, also need when each the shooting, carry out even do not carry out setting operation.And, shown in the picture 30b among Fig. 2, amplify the icon display shown major part for the photographic images of the camera of the bottom that covers display frame, so under the situation of using the icon of hiding photographic images fully, can when finishing the judgement that utilizes icon, control to finish to amplify and show, as shown in Figure 4, preferably can from figure, return the normal show state shown in the picture 35b by the amplification show state shown in the picture 35a.

First method of the amplification show state of control beginning, finish icon is the method for indicating the amplification of beginning, finish icon to show by user's operation, for example, be to begin to amplify by partly pressing of release button to show, button is restored or pushes other hardkey from partly pressing, thereby finish the method that shows.

And, second method is that CPU13 judges when shooting condition is complete, if promptly press release (shutter) button then during the state that can take, the amplification of beginning icon shows, and, be the method that device carries out automatically in method through finishing behind the official hour to show.

And then, also can use above-mentioned first and second methods of combination, promptly begin or finish the method for one of them and can use automatic or user's method of operating simultaneously automatically or by user's operation.

And, shown in the picture 30b among Fig. 2, owing to amplify the major part of photographic images of camera that the icon shown covers the bottom of display frame, so when hiding photographic images with complete invisible state, because determine the operation etc. of the picture structure of the reference object that the user takes, so produce defective.

Therefore, being made as and can be used as the icon that translucent image shows that amplification shows, is the method for avoiding above-mentioned defective.Under the situation of the display packing of using translucent image, can adopt and to select translucent/opaque mode (for example, the project preparation set of operation when showing or the user that carries out in advance etc.) by the user.The icon that amplifies demonstration is made as the method for translucent image, show in amplification that can't finish icon by user's operation, promptly under the situation that device finishes automatically, owing to seeing photographic images, so become the effective ways under this situation by translucent image.In addition, parts that can application of known are implemented translucent image is overlapped onto method on the image of bottom of display frame.

And then it doesn't matter in the work that the shooting work of camera and the amplification of icon show, can independently carry out.In the above-mentioned idea that icon is made as translucent image expression is arranged also, but amplify the icon that shows and to finish this function, can avoid limiting shooting work as far as possible on the other hand, so under the situation of amplifying display icon, also be made as the state of the work of can taking in advance, if promptly press the state that release (shutter) button just can be taken.By controlling, can carry out suitable photography and do not miss the camera meeting according to such condition.

And, the work that can when connecting the power supply of digital camera, begin to amplify display icon.Thus, in energized, can visual identity set change for shooting.

Here, also can be made as after the power supply of having connected digital camera, after operator's energized certain hour, show corresponding to the icon of setting change.Owing to mostly be the situation of the work of behind power connection, not taking, at once so can tackle.

And, also can after the power supply of connecting digital camera, after first stipulated time, show corresponding to the icon of setting change, after second stipulated time, return the structure of common demonstration.The operator has connected under the situation of power supply, owing to set change every the certain hour visual identity, and after the certain hour visual identity, take work normally, and so return normal icon constantly at this, the convenience height.

And, can be in digital camera, showing under the situation corresponding to the icon of setting change the structure that the moment of focusing partly pressing shutter release button shows.When showing owing to the moment of focusing at the shutter release button of partly pressing digital camera, show and do not hinder and watch the object picture of taking pictures up to partly pressing before the shutter release button by amplifying, amplify to show and after partly pressing, begin expression, so can guarantee the visual identity visual identity of object and visual identity the visual identity of taking pictures corresponding to the icon of change.

And, comprise the load button that the operator can import in the operating portion 14, can be following structure: load button receives pressing of operator and sends input signal, OSD control part 22 is by receiving this input signal, and the osd function that shows is amplified in control beginning, stop and temporarily stopping etc.Thus, can improve operator's the degree of freedom.

Here, the execution mode of the icon display control that can judge the osd function that the user sets has been used in expression.In addition, in the execution mode shown below, the example of operating the mode of beginning that control shows and end by automatic or user is used in expression simultaneously.

Fig. 3 is the flow chart of the icon display control of present embodiment.During the action of the icon display control of carrying out with reference to the flowchart text CPU13 of Fig. 3, at first, judge do not have in whether imposing a condition incomplete, i.e. photography conditions complete (step S101).

Confirm as the state (step S101-is) that to take, judge simultaneously whether to have and operate impose a condition (the step S102) that has changed by the user.This processing obtains as the result who has investigated the storage area that prior preservation user sets, if this processings is arranged then store its content in advance as imposing a condition of having changed.

If impose a condition (step S102-is not) that has changed by user operation then do not set (amplification of promptly not carrying out icon shows) owing to needn't judge the user, so break away from this workflow.

On the other hand, if impose a condition (step 102-is) of having changed by user operation arranged, then specific imposing a condition of having changed, and specify corresponding to specific imposing a condition as the object icon that amplify to show, the icon that shows on this screen is sent to OSD control part 22, thereby the amplification of beginning object icon shows (step S103).In the present embodiment, owing to carry out the amplification of icon is shown the control that is made as the stipulated time, so open the timer of the stipulated time of clocking this moment.

And, in the present embodiment, after the user has confirmed to set, amplify the obstacle that the icon that has shown becomes the picture structure of the object of taking pictures that decision takes on the picture that amplify to show the icon that imposes a condition that has changed, so the amplification demonstration that the operation by the user can finish icon.Therefore, judge the processing (step S104) of this user's affirmation operation.

Here, if user's affirmation operation (step S104-is) is arranged, then the amplification of finish icon shows (step S106).At this moment, close the timer of the stipulated time of clocking and break away from this workflow.

In step S104, the operation that imposes a condition (step S104-is not) that on the picture that has shown icon in amplification, has the user confirm to change, then amplify and show elapsed time (step S105) by the timer process decision chart target of opening earlier, if do not pass through the stipulated time, then return the user and judge the step S104 that confirms operation.

If passed through the stipulated time (step S105-is), then the amplification of finish icon shows (step s106), and closes the timer of the stipulated time of clocking, thereby breaks away from this workflow.

Fig. 4 is that the osd function that the digital camera that passes through execution mode is described amplifies after the icon in LCD10, transfers to the figure of the situation of normal demonstration.

The execution mode of the demonstration work of the icon on the picture when here, below the amplification of the above-mentioned icon of expression shows end.When the amplification of icon shows end, as the picture 35a of Fig. 4 to the variation of picture 35b, also can be by only stopping to amplify the method for demonstration, but in execution mode shown below, further expression can make the user recognize by the user to operate imposing a condition of having changed and improve the mode of its visual identity rate.Here, slowly dwindle the size of amplifying the object icon shown, transfer to the position of regulation occupied when showing with normal small size simultaneously.

Fig. 5 represents to amplify in the present embodiment the time dependent figure that the picture of the icon that has shown shows.Fig. 5 illustration: press such " feature pattern " button of tulip schematically drawn in the screening-mode (not shown), thereby the user is set in the icon that amplifies " tulip " that show under the situation of the function of taking under the feature pattern.Picture 41 among this figure is to carry out the preceding picture of setting operation, and Figure 42 has amplified the picture that has shown " tulip " icon 41 after having carried out setting operation.

When amplifying the demonstration end, adopt following display packing: it is such that the size of the demonstration of " tulip " icon 41L that will the amplification shown in the picture among Fig. 5 42 have shown narrows down to " tulip " icon 41M shown in the picture 43 among this figure, at last, the position of occupied regulation when being presented at " tulip " icon 41S shown in the picture among this figure 44 and showing with normal small size like that, the size of slowly dwindling icon between picture 42~44 moves simultaneously.By adopting such display packing, set up related identification by the setting that will amplify pattern (function) that the icon that shown expresses etc. with layout, can improve user's visual identity rate and reduce and be set by the user and the mistake of the situation of change setting.

And, as mentioned above, prepared to represent to be set by the user and function that the amplification of the icon of the pattern (function) that changed etc. shows, but then, the expression user preestablishes the utilization of this function, can be according to setting the execution mode that utilizes.

In the present embodiment, can be set by the user this point, the amplification of carrying out icon whether shows or amplifies under the situation of demonstration, can further select the mode of operation (function) of icon representation etc.

Fig. 6 is that the user of expression when utilizing the amplifying display function of the icon in the present embodiment sets picture 61 and according to the figure of the example of the display frame of setting 62.Shown in Figure 61, setting item can be indicated the On/Off of each project by input operation.Closing of " amplification of change object showing " is the setting under the situation of not utilizing this amplifying display function, is unlatching under situation about utilizing.Under the situation that " amplification of change object shows " opens, On/Off according to the user in following " grand (macro) " " screening-mode " " AF/MF/SNAP/ distant view " " white balance " projects such as " exposure corrections " is set, and does not amplify the project that demonstration does not need (closing).

In the example of Fig. 6, owing to open " grand " " screening-mode " " AF/MF/SNAP/ distant view " respectively,, four icons in this figure picture 61 forbid the icon of icon (screening-mode) 31L, floral diagram mark (grand) 34L so being mountain capable of enlarged displaying icon (distant view) 32L, continuous shooting icon (screening-mode) 33L, photoflash lamp.Like this, can carry out work corresponding to user's requirement.

In addition, in the above description, be illustrated, but for example, also can be applied to electronic viewfinder (EVF=Electronic View Finder), can replace LCD10, as EVF (not shown) explanation similarly as the structure that shows among the LCD10.

Fig. 7 is the schematic diagram that explanation is applied to osd function of the present invention demonstration in the optical finder under the situation of optical finder of einzel lens reflex camera.Here, replace in LCD10, showing, and show in the display part in being disposed at optical finder.In the frame portion 70 that shows in the optical finder, the icon representation photoflash lamp 71 here, burst mode 72, iso sensitivity 73 etc. under the situation of being undertaken by the operator corresponding to the setting of these icons, emphasize to show this setting change by lighting.

Here, the icon display portion 70 of optical finder not only can be applicable to digital camera, also can be applied in the icon display portion of the optical finder in the silver halide photography machine of silver salt film photographs.

Fig. 8-1 and 8-2 are explanation changes the example of display icon under the situation that has changed function from default conditions figure.Picture 81 is normal display frame.Now under the situation of having set the feature pattern, initial in picture 82 bigger demonstration represent the icon 82a of feature pattern, process the time, icon changes as the icon 83a~85a in the picture 83~85, is configured in the position of regulation at last in time.Like this, by set just change after bigger demonstration, and slowly diminish and converge on the demonstration of the position of regulation, situation about having set is impressed, and at the appointed time, can converge on does not become the position that hinders shooting.

Fig. 9-1~9-3 is that the state that explanation is set from the feature pattern changes the also figure of the example of display icon under the situation that the distant view mode altering is set.Picture 91 is the normal display frame of setting the feature pattern.Under the situation of having set the distant view pattern, the icon of the feature pattern of setting is so far represented in less demonstration in picture 92 at first, simultaneously now, pass through in time, as the icon 92a~94a in the picture 92~94, change greatly, then, shown in picture 95, disappear like that.In this case, also can be to amplify lowering of concentration, the mode of Xiao Shiing simultaneously with fading out.Thus, can give the impression that the feature pattern disappears.

Then, then show the icon 96a of expression distant view pattern in picture 96, demonstration slowly diminishes as the variation of the distant view mode icon 97a~99a in the picture 97~99.Like this, bigger demonstration after just having changed setting, and slowly less demonstration, thus can produce the impression that has reset the distant view pattern.And, in the switching of burst mode and distant view pattern, can deepen the impression by dynamically switching the demonstration that changes size.

The figure that Figure 10 is the explanation picture from the change Status Change set to default conditions.Under the state that has shown the normal pictures of setting 101, in the operating portion 14 of the operation input of accepting the operator, the operator presses when setting change button (not shown), shows in the picture 102 of the icon flicker that switches to setting.Perhaps, also can switch to the picture 103 of the icon that amplifies display setting.After setting pressing of change button and stopping, turning back to original picture 101.

Here, continue to press when setting the change button, show the picture 104 of accepting to switch to default conditions.The OK that cursor is put in the picture 104 shows on the 104a, and during OK button (not shown) in the push portion 14, operator's setting is all removed, and returns original default setting.Picture 105 is pictures of the default conditions that return.

Figure 11 is the figure of the example of the explanation expression icon that carried out the setting different with acquiescence.The current state of default conditions and setting relatively in the picture 111, thereby display icon are not only gone back display text information.The zone of expression show bar 112a is set in the picture 112, only shows the icon 112b of the setting different with default setting.Picture 113 is only emphasized applying underscore with the icon of giving tacit consent to different settings.All being to emphasize to show the icon of comparing the setting of having changed with acquiescence, is to cause easily that the operator notes the design of change setting.

Like this, among the present invention, information processing method to the digital camera of the subsidiary display that can control in the icon display of the unit state of the enterprising line display digital camera of display or condition of work by osd function, CPU13 reads the OSD control program that is stored among the ROM23, declare the setting change of the state variation or the condition of work of digital camera by the device condition criterion function of program, function by specified icons, the state of the digital camera of having specified expression to judge to change or the icon of condition of work, by the OSD presentation control function, show the icon of appointment before with the mode OSD different with specifying icon.

Like this, various set conditions that digital camera is taken are compared with default conditions or preceding state under the situation about having changed, by to represent icon with different before changing modes, can visual identity set the visual identity of changing, and the judgement of carry out setting reliably, and can reduce in operator's the setting because the wrong shooting error that causes.

As mentioned above, the electronic installation of subsidiary display of the present invention, information processing method and the program that makes computer carry out this method are used for the Display Technique of the electronic installation of subsidiary display, more specifically say, be used for by OSD (On Screen Display) function can the icon display unit state and the electronic installation of subsidiary display such as filming apparatus that comprises miniscope (for example, digital camera) of condition of work, PDA (Personal DigitalAssistants), mobile phone in Display Technique.
