Based on the input signal of the angle detection signal from the sensor section 31.
Color of digital image data from camera signal processing unit 102
Change the angle of view of the difference and luminance input data. Here, the sensor unit 31 serving as a detecting means includes:
Two main bodies, namely, the display side main body 1 and the operation button side book
The folded state (angle) with the body 2 is detected. That is, the display side main body 1 is
Close to 90 ° with respect to body 2 when closed
When the angle is determined to be half open,
And the display side main unit 1
And even if the operation button side body 2 is opened and placed on a flat surface
In the case of no angle (see FIG. 3B), the sensor unit 3
1 outputs the angle detection signal supplied to the signal processing unit 103.
The power level is set to LOW. Then, the signal processing unit 103 described above
When a LOW level detection signal is input, the angle of view changes.
The original image is changed for the image compression / decompression unit 104 without correction.
Exchange processing. The reason why the correction is not performed is as follows.
Use a videophone with the phone set on a desk, etc.
If the phone is too close to the subject's face
It can be assumed that there is no, and the screen is full because the face is close to the camera
It is said that the face is reflected or that only part of the face is reflected
This is because it is unlikely that such a situation will occur. On the other hand, the display side main body 1 is operated.
180 ° with reference to the button side body 2 when closed
When the angle is close to
The display side main body 1
When the operation button side main body 2 is opened and placed on a flat surface, it falls down
In the case of an angle {see FIG.
Of the angle detection signal supplied to the signal conversion processing unit 103 from the
The power level is set to HIGH. Then, the signal processing unit 103
Automatically changes the angle of view when H level detection signal is input
Correction to reduce the image. The reason for performing such correction is as follows.
If you are using a videophone with your phone in hand,
It can be assumed that the distance between the phone and the face of the subject is short,
Because the camera and the face are close, the face is reflected on the entire screen
The situation that only part of the face is reflected
It is considered that. Therefore, the angle of view is automatically changed as described above.
The entire face within the screen.
And prevent it from being reflected up
it can. In the case of reproducing or recording an image, the image pressure
Digital image compressed by compression / expansion circuit 104
The data is output to the memory unit 105 and stored in the memory unit 105.
The recorded digital image data is sent to the image compression / decompression unit.
The data is processed at 104, expanded to an appropriate size, and output unit 1
06 is output. In the case of transmission / reception, the memory unit 105
