It is possible to improve the usability when shooting with a camera with respect to the state.

  The portable information processing device 1 is in a stable state, for example, is placed on the ground, and the unstable state is, for example, a state in which the portable information processing device 1 is held by a user. Different processing can be performed depending on whether the information processing apparatus 1 is placed on the ground or held.

  The camera 14 has a first shooting mode for shooting the subject, a second shooting mode for shooting the subject in flash with exposure adjusted, and a human subject posing while looking at the screen. Since at least one of the third shooting modes for shooting is determined, it is possible to display a shot image suitable for various shooting modes.

  In the clamshell state, in the first shooting mode, an upright image of the image captured by the camera 14 is displayed on the second display unit 21B, and a white image is displayed on the first display unit 11B. Therefore, usability can be improved when shooting with a camera in the clamshell state.

  In the case of the tablet state, in the first shooting mode, an upright image of the image captured by the camera 14 is displayed on the first display unit 11B, and in the second shooting mode, the second display unit 21B. Since the upright image of the image captured by the camera 14 is displayed on the first display unit 11 while the white image is displayed on the first display unit 11B, the usability when shooting with the camera in the tablet state can be improved. It becomes possible.

  In the tent state, in the first shooting mode, an upright image of the image captured by the camera 14 is displayed on the first display unit 11B, and in the second shooting mode, the second display unit 21B is displayed. Since the upright image of the captured image is displayed while the white image is displayed on the first display unit 11B, it is possible to improve the usability when shooting with the camera in the tent state.

  In the live view state, in the second shooting mode, an upright image of the image captured by the camera 14 is displayed on the second display unit 21B, while a white image is displayed on the first display unit 11B. In the third shooting mode, since the upright images of the captured images are displayed on the first display unit 11B and the second display unit 21B, the case of shooting with the camera in the live view state is displayed. Usability can be improved.
