The recording / playback change-over switch 6 is a slide switch for switching between the recording mode and the playback mode, the menu key 7 is for displaying menu items of various operation modes, and the cursor key 8 is a display key. This is for moving the menu items and the like.

  The liquid crystal monitor 9 is composed of a color liquid crystal display panel with a backlight, and displays the subject image (through image) on the monitor in the shooting standby state in the recording mode, and also selects the operation mode etc. by operating the menu key 7. Is also displayed. The color liquid crystal display panel is wider than a normal one, and the liquid crystal monitor 9 has a display screen 9a having a horizontal aspect ratio (3: 6 in this embodiment) rather than a normal aspect ratio (3: 4). have. Further, a photographing lens 10, an optical viewfinder window 11, a self-timer lamp 12, and a strobe light emitting unit 13 are disposed on the front surface of the camera body 2.

  FIG. 2 is a block configuration diagram showing an outline of the electrical configuration of the digital camera 1. The digital camera 1 includes a CCD 22 that is an imaging unit, and compresses and expands an image captured by the CCD 22 and conforms to a predetermined format, for example, a unified standard DCF (Design Rule for Camera File system) or JPEG (Joint Photographic Expert Group). The MPU 23 is mainly configured with an image processing function for generating and reproducing a format image file. On the light receiving surface of the CCD 22, an optical image of the subject is formed through the photographing lens 10, the focus lens 25, and the diaphragm 26. The focus lens 25 is held by a drive mechanism 27 such as an AF motor, and the drive signal output from the AF driver 28 is supplied to the drive mechanism 27 by a control signal from the MPU 23, so that the focus lens 25 moves back and forth on the optical axis. Perform focusing operation. The diaphragm 26 is driven by a drive signal generated by the diaphragm drive unit 29 based on a control signal from the MPU 23 and adjusts the light quantity of the subject image incident on the CCD 22.

  In addition, a TG (Timing Generator) 30 that generates a timing signal is connected to the MPU 23, and a V driver 31 (vertical driver) drives the CCD 22 based on the timing signal generated by the TG 30. An analog imaging signal corresponding to the luminance of the image is output and sent to the unit circuit 32. The unit circuit 32 includes a CDS that holds an imaging signal output from the CCD 22, a gain adjustment amplifier (AGC) that is an analog amplifier that is supplied with the imaging signal from the CDS, and an analog imaging that is amplified and adjusted by the gain adjustment amplifier. An A / D converter (AD) that converts the signal into a digital signal is used. The output signal of the CCD 22 is sampled with the black level matched and sent to the MPU 23 as a digital signal.

  The MPU 23 is connected to the operation key unit 33 including various switch groups shown in FIG. 1, the liquid crystal monitor 9, the strobe 34, the DRAM 35, the MROM 36, the flash memory 37, and a power supply circuit 38 including a rechargeable battery.

  The DRAM 35 is a working memory, and the flash memory 37 is an image recording memory. A digital signal (imaging signal) sent from the CCD 22 to the MPU 23 is temporarily stored in the DRAM 35 and various image processes are performed by the MPU 23. After that, it is finally recorded in the flash memory 37 as compressed image data. The flash memory 37 may be a card type that can be attached to and detached from the camera body 2.

  The image data recorded in the flash memory 37 is read out to the MPU 23 as necessary, and is generated into a digital video signal or an analog video signal through processing such as expansion processing, addition of a luminance signal and a color signal, and then liquid crystal Displayed by the monitor 9. On the liquid crystal monitor 9, images periodically picked up in the recording mode are displayed as a through image after being thinned to a predetermined number of pixels.

  The MROM 36 is a program ROM in which various operation programs necessary for control of each unit and data processing in the MPU 23 are recorded. The MROM 36 stores various data such as program AE data constituting a program diagram showing a combination of an aperture value (F) corresponding to an appropriate exposure value (EV) at the time of photographing and a shutter speed. The operation program and various data described above may be recorded in the flash memory 37. When the MROM 36 is a non-volatile memory such as an EPPROM in which stored contents can be rewritten, the above-described operation program or the like can be stored in another device such as a personal computer or other communication means using the Internet or the like. The structure supplied from the apparatus may be sufficient.

  According to the program diagram, the MPU 23 performs AE control by controlling the charge accumulation time of the CCD 22, which is the shutter speed, the degree of opening of the diaphragm 26, and the gain of the gain adjustment amplifier (AGC) in the unit circuit 32, AF (auto focus) control and AWB (auto white balance) control for driving the focus lens 25 are performed according to a predetermined program. Further, when the shutter key 4 is operated (during shooting operation), the flash auxiliary light emission by the strobe 34 and the light emission amount are controlled as necessary.

  In the best shot mode, which is a lower mode of the recording (REC) mode, the MPU 23 controls display of a sample image according to a user's operation or a sample image (shooting scene) selected by the user. It performs control related to the setting of the shooting conditions, and functions as a generation unit, a display control unit, and a control unit of the present invention.

  The flash memory 37 stores a large number of scene data 101 used in the best shot mode in a predetermined area provided separately from an area where image data acquired by photographing is recorded.

  FIG. 3 is a schematic diagram showing the configuration of the scene data 101. As illustrated, the scene data 101 includes a scene number 201 for data management, and sample data 202, shooting conditions 203, and comment information 204 corresponding to the data. The sample image data 202 is image data displayed on the liquid crystal monitor 9 when a scene is selected in the scene select mode. For example, various portraits, two shots in which two people are lined up, a person and a landscape, a mountain in a sunset, This is sample image data showing various shooting scenes such as an amusement park, a city night view, a pet, and a flower garden.

  The shooting condition data 203 is data indicating shooting conditions of the digital camera 1 set in advance corresponding to each of a plurality of shooting modes that can be selected when setting a scene select mode to be described later, that is, focus control, shutter speed, These are parameters indicating the contents of a plurality of control items that can be controlled in the electronic still camera 1 such as aperture, EV shift amount, sensitivity,. FIG. 4 is a diagram illustrating an example of the control item of the shooting condition data 203 and the parameter of the control item for each scene number. The comment information 204 is character data such as a scene name and a scene description displayed on the liquid crystal monitor 9 together with the sample image.

  Next, the operation when the best shot mode is set by the user in the digital camera 1 having the above configuration will be described. FIG. 5 is a flowchart showing the processing procedure of the MPU 3 in that case.

  The MPU 3 first reads the above-described scene data 101 stored in the flash memory 37, and displays a scene selection screen (not shown) including a sample image and a corresponding scene name on the liquid crystal monitor 9 (step S1). The user operates the cursor key 8 to select a desired shooting scene by sending and displaying the sample image and the scene name in the scene selection screen in a predetermined order (step S2). When a shooting scene is determined by a predetermined determination operation by the user (such as pressing the shutter key 4) (YES in step S3), shooting of scene number 201 corresponding to the sample image displayed on the scene selection screen at that time is performed. The condition data 203 is read out and set as shooting conditions for the shooting operation (step S4).

  Subsequently, a transition is made to a shooting standby state in the shooting mode under the shooting conditions determined here, and imaging at a predetermined interval by the CCD 2, that is, capturing of the subject image is started (step S5), and the number of pixels of the captured image is set to a predetermined value. A normal through image is generated by thinning out the number and temporarily stored in the DRAM 35 (step S6). Further, the captured image is subjected to predetermined image processing according to the shooting conditions set at that time to generate a preview image (confirmation image) (step S7).

  That is, as shown in FIG. 6, if there is a non-standard EV shift amount in the shooting condition, the brightness of the image is increased / decreased according to the shift amount, and if there is a contrast setting as well, the contrast is increased / decreased. (Steps S101 to S104). Also, if there are settings related to the hue of the image such as color filter, white balance (WB), and color enhancement in the shooting conditions, the hue of the entire image is adjusted accordingly, and if there is a saturation setting, it is set. The saturation is increased according to the degree (steps S106 to S109). Further, if sharpness is set in the photographing condition, the filter processing for sharpness having the strength corresponding to the set degree is performed and temporarily stored in the processed DRAM 35 (steps S110 to S112). Note that the content of the processing shown in FIG. 6 is an example, and if there are shooting conditions that can be reflected in the captured image in the shooting standby state in addition to the above, processing corresponding to the shooting conditions Will be applied.

  Thereafter, as shown in FIG. 7, the display screen 9a of the liquid crystal monitor 9 is divided into a first display area (maximum display area) A having an aspect ratio of 3: 4 having the entire left side as the left side, and the remaining right side area. Is divided into second and third display areas (other areas) B and C having an aspect ratio of 3: 4 that are divided into two vertically, and the preview image G3 generated in step S7 is divided into the first display area A. In addition, the sample image G2 of the selected shooting scene read in step S2 is displayed in the second display area B, and the through image G1 generated in step S6 is displayed in the third display area C (step S8). At this time, the scene name M is displayed along the lower side of the sample image G2 (second display area B).

  Thereafter, until the shutter key 4 is pressed (NO in step S12), the process returns to step S5 and the above-described processing is repeated to update the through image G1 and the preview image G3 each time a new subject image is captured. . As a result, the user (photographer) confirms the difference between the through image G1 and the preview image G3 during framing, and thereby the shooting conditions corresponding to the shooting scene selected by the user (shooter being set) Mode) can be confirmed.

  Further, when there is a scene change operation (operation of the cursor key 8) by the user during the above-described shooting standby (YES in step S9), the MPU 3 selects a scene before or after the selected shooting scene according to the operation. The numbered sample image is read (step S10), and the shooting condition being set is changed to a shooting condition corresponding to the newly selected shooting scene (sample image) (step S11). Then, the process returns to step S7 and the above-described processing is repeated to update the sample image G2 (and scene name M) and the preview image G3 displayed on the liquid crystal monitor 9.

  Then, if the shutter key is pressed during shooting standby with the above-described processing (YES in step S12), imaging is performed under the shooting conditions set at that time, and the captured image is recorded (step S13). Thus, one shooting operation in the best shot mode is completed. Thereafter, the processing after step S6 described above is repeated until the setting of the best shot mode is canceled.

  As described above, according to the present embodiment, during standby for shooting in the best shot mode, the user determines in advance the effect of the shooting mode set at that time depending on the difference between the through image G1 and the preview image G3. Can be confirmed. Therefore, it is easy to determine a composition suitable for the effect, and usability during shooting standby is improved. For example, when the image of the preview image G3 is different from the image envisioned by the user, the shooting scene can be selected again and changed to another shooting mode with different shooting conditions. That is, it is not necessary to perform useless shooting operations.

  In addition, the shooting mode can be changed in the shooting standby state, that is, the effect of the other shooting modes can be confirmed while checking the actual subject. In addition, since the sample image G2 and the like are displayed together with the through image G1 and the preview image G3, it is easy to select a desired shooting mode (shooting scene). These also ensure excellent usability during shooting standby. Note that the sample image G2 is not necessarily displayed.

  Further, the liquid crystal monitor 9 has a display screen 9a having an aspect ratio that is longer than the aspect ratio of the image captured by the CCD 22, and the display screen 9a is displayed in the first to third displays in the shooting standby state. Since the preview image G3 is displayed in the largest first display area by being divided into areas A to C, it is easy to confirm the effect of the set shooting mode, which is convenient. Moreover, since the aspect ratio of the display screen 9a is “3: 6” in the present embodiment, the preview image G3 can be displayed larger than the through image G1 while using the entire display screen 9a. Good.

  Further, in the present embodiment, the case where the display screen 9a has an aspect ratio that is longer than the aspect ratio of the image captured by the CCD 22 has been described. However, the aspect ratio of the display screen 9a is, for example, that of the captured image. The same “3: 4” or other ratios may be used. However, if it is other than “3: 4”, when the preview image G3 is displayed larger than the through image G1 as in the present embodiment, it is easy to do so. Further, whatever the aspect ratio of the display screen 9a of the liquid crystal monitor 9 is, the form of the division is arbitrary.

  Further, in the present embodiment, the digital camera 1 has the best shot shooting function, and the shooting mode in which shooting conditions during the shooting operation are different from each other can be selected by selecting a sample image. The present invention is also applicable to a digital camera that does not have a best shot shooting function. For example, in the case of having a specific shooting mode according to the type of subject such as the night view mode, if the preview image as described above is displayed together with the through image in the shooting standby state when those shooting modes are set, This makes it easier to determine a composition suitable for the effect of the shooting mode. Therefore, even in that case, usability during shooting standby can be improved.

(Other embodiments)
Next, another embodiment according to the present invention will be described. In this embodiment, in the configuration shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, the TFT liquid crystal monitor 9 has a normal aspect ratio of “3: 4”, and the MROM 36 causes the MPU 23 to perform the following display control. The present invention relates to a digital camera storing the program.

  Also in the present embodiment, when the best shot mode is set by the user, the MPU 23 performs the same processing as described with reference to FIGS. 5 and 6 to allow the user to select a desired shooting scene and to perform shooting. In the standby state, the above-described through image and preview image are generated. Then, as shown in FIG. 8, the entire preview image G3 is displayed on the display screen 9a of the liquid crystal monitor 9, and the through image G1 and the sample image G2 are reduced and displayed from the lower right side of the preview image G3. The scene name M is overwritten and displayed on the lower side of the sample image G2. Other processes are the same as those in the above-described embodiment.

  Also in such an embodiment, during shooting standby in the best shot mode, the user confirms in advance the effect of the shooting mode set at that time based on the difference between the through image G1 and the preview image G3. Can do. Therefore, it becomes easy to determine a composition suitable for the effect, the usability during shooting standby is improved, and unnecessary shooting operation is not required.

  In addition, since the shooting mode can be changed in the shooting standby state and the sample image G2 and the like are displayed together with the through image G1 and the preview image G3, a desired shooting mode (shooting scene) can be easily selected. These also ensure excellent usability during shooting standby. Note that the sample image G2 is not necessarily displayed.

  In the present embodiment, the through image G1 and the sample image G2 are displayed in the region along the lower side of the preview image G3. However, the through image G1 and the sample image G2 (or the through image) are displayed in other regions. (G1 only) may be displayed. Furthermore, the display position of the through image G1 or the like may be selected by the user. For example, the display position of the through image G1 or the like may be switched between the lower side and the upper side of the preview image G3 according to a predetermined operation.

  Further, the case where the preview image G3 is displayed in the entire area and the through image G1 and the sample image G2 are displayed in a reduced size is shown. And may be reduced. Further, in accordance with a predetermined operation by the user, the through image G1 or the like is temporarily erased when the preview image G3 is displayed in the entire area, and the preview image G3 or the like is temporarily erased when the through image G1 is displayed in the entire area. It is good also as a structure which can do.

  Further, even in the configuration in which the TFT liquid crystal monitor 9 has a normal aspect ratio (3: 4), the display screen 9a is divided into a plurality of regions as in the previous embodiment, and the preview image G3 and the through image G1 are sampled. The image G2 may be individually displayed in a different area, and in that case, the user may be able to switch the display position of each image by a predetermined operation.

  In the above embodiment, the present invention is applied to a digital camera. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and the present invention can be applied to a camera built in a portable information terminal such as a mobile phone. it can.
