Abstract

The position of the camera, for taking a photograph in a portrait- or in a landscape position, or even held upside down can be recorded by a sensor and an appropriate device in combination with the information recorded in order to serve as the later picture. When the photograph is digitally processed, both kinds of information can be used simultaneously, resulting in an automatic saving of the picture in the intended format.

Description

  • Es ist bekannt, dass in der Fotographie Aufnahmen im Hoch- und Querformat gemacht werden, mittlerweile auch mit unterschiedlichen Relationen (zB Panorama-Aufnahme). It is known that shooting in portrait and landscape orientations are made in photography, now also with different ratios (eg panoramic shot). Auf herrkömmlichen Film, der entwickelt wird und von dem Abzüge gemacht werden, stellt dies kein Problem dar, da beim Betrachten oder Einkleben der Bilder in ein Album diese ohnehin so gedreht werden, dass sie richtig herum betrachtet werden. On herrkömmlichen film is developed and made by the deductions, this is not a problem as the examination or gluing the pictures in an album they are already rotated so that they are considered the correct direction.
  • Der in den Patentansprüchen angegebenen Erfindung liegt das Problem zugrunde, dass bei der digitalen Fotographie, bzw. neuen Diensten, die beim Entwickeln der Bilder eine CD-Rom mit elektronischen Daten anfertigen, eine Drehung des Bildes nicht automatisiert ist. The specified in the claims invention is based on the problem that a rotation of the image is not automated in digital photography, and new services that make a CD-ROM with electronic data in developing the images. In diesen Fällen ist es notwendig, dass ein menschlicher Betrachter im Nachhinein entscheidet, ob das Bild ursprünglich im Hoch- oder Querformat aufgenommen wurde und dies gegebenenfalls um 90 Grad (oder gar 180 Grad bei Aufnahmen, die „auf den Kopf stehen") elektronisch „dreht". In these cases it is necessary that a human observer subsequently decides whether the image was originally taken in portrait or landscape format and this, if appropriate, by 90 degrees (or even 180 degrees Recording that "the upside down") electronically " turns ". Gerade bei einer großen Anzahl von Aufnahmen, die eventuell automatisiert veröffentlicht oder auf Speichermedien geschrieben werden, ist eine Automatisierung der Drehung sinnvoll, die allerdings eine Informationen über die Aufnahme zum Zeitpunkt der Aufnahme selbst benötigt. Especially with a large number of recordings that may be published automatically or written to storage media, automation of the rotation is useful, which however requires information about the shooting at the time of recording itself.
  • Dieses Problem wird durch das im Patentanspruch 1 aufgeführte Verfahren zur Messung der Kameraposition, um Informationen über Quer- und Hochformat zu gewinnen, wobei die Lage der Kamera zum Zeitpunkt der Aufnahme mit einem Sensor gemessen wird, gelöst. This problem is solved by the cited in claim 1. A method of measuring the camera position, to obtain information about landscape and portrait orientation, the position of the camera is measured at the time of recording with a sensor.
  • Die mit der Erfindung erzielten Vorteile bestehen insbesondere darin, dass die Drehung der digitalen Bilder automatisiert werden kann und somit die Weiterverarbeitung in Form einer Veröffentlichung (zB Fotogalerie im Internet), eines lokalen elektronischen Fotoalbums oder einer dauerhaften Archivierung (zB Erstellung einer Foto-CD-Rom) ohne weitere händische Eingriffe erfolgen kann. The advantages achieved with the invention consist in particular in that the rotation of the digital images can be automated, and thus the processing in the form of a release (for example, photo gallery in the Internet), a local electronic photo album or a permanent storage (for example, creating a photo CD Rome) can be done without further manual intervention.
  • Eine vorteilhafte Ausgestaltung der Erfindung ist in Patentanspruch 2 angegeben. An advantageous embodiment of the invention is indicated in patent claim. 2 In dieser Weiterbildung wird die entsprechende Umrechnung des digitalen Bildes direkt im Aufnahmegerät selbst zeitnah durchgeführt. In this development, the appropriate conversion of the digital image is performed directly in the recorder itself promptly. Somit muss auch keine zusätzliche Information zum aufgenommenen Bild selbst gespeichert werden, da das bereits richtig gedrehte Bild die entsprechende Information über Hoch- oder Querformat enthält. Therefore, no additional information about the captured image itself must be saved because the already correctly rotated image contains the relevant information about portrait or landscape mode.
  • Ein Ausführungsbeispiel des Sensors selbst ist in der Zeichnung dargestellt und wird im folgenden näher beschrieben. One embodiment of the sensor itself is shown in the drawing and will be described in more detail below. Es kann auch jeder andere Sensor, der eine äquivalente Information ausgibt verwendet werden. It can also be used any other sensor that outputs an equivalent information. Patentansprüche werden nur auf das Verfahren selbst als Ganzes geltend gemacht. Claims be asserted only on the procedure itself as a whole.
  • Beschreibung der Zeichnung Description of the Drawing
  • In der Zeichnung ist zu erkennen, dass sich das Quecksilber nach der Schwerkraft richtet und sich somit immer unten im Sensor befindet und einen elektrischen Kontakt zwischen zwei Kontaktflächen im Sensor herstellt. In the drawing it is seen that the mercury is determined by the gravity and is thus in the sensor is always below and makes electrical contact between two contact surfaces in the sensor. Je nach Füllmenge, kann es bei diagonalen Lagen auch einen doppelten Kontakt oder keinen geben, dies sind Variationen des Sensors. Depending on the filling, there can be a double contact or not at diagonal positions, these are variations of the sensor. Der dargestellte Sensor ist ein Ausführungsbesispiel und kann auch in jeder anderen Ausführung hergestellt werden. The sensor shown is a Ausführungsbesispiel and can be manufactured in any other version. Wichtig ist ein Element, das sich nach der Schwerkraft richtet und somit die Lage der Kamera im Vergleich zur Erde bestimmt. Important is an element which is determined by the gravity and thus determines the position of the camera relative to the ground.
  • Anschließend kann das Signal zur Weiterverarbeitung, wie in den Patentansprüchen beschrieben, verwendet werden. Subsequently, the signal can for further processing, as described in the claims is used.
