It is a flowchart which shows the process sequence of the master camera in the embodiment. It is a flowchart which shows the process sequence of the slave camera in the embodiment.

  Hereinafter, an embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings. FIG. 1A is an explanatory diagram showing a camera system according to an embodiment of the present invention. This camera system is composed of six cameras from the first camera 1A to the sixth camera 1F (hereinafter, all or a part of the first camera 1A to the sixth camera 1F will be referred to as the camera 1). . These cameras 1 are arranged at substantially equal intervals so as to surround a specific subject 30 (for example, a golfer who performs golf swing), and intends to shoot the specific subject 30 from the surroundings.

  FIG. 2 is a block diagram illustrating a schematic configuration of the camera 1. In the present embodiment, in the first camera 1A to the sixth camera 1F, at least one camera has the configuration shown in FIG. That is, the camera 1 includes a control unit 3 connected to each unit via the bus line 20, and the control unit 3 is a one-chip microcomputer that controls each unit of the camera 1. The imaging unit 4 is disposed on the optical axis of an imaging lens 5 that is composed of a CMOS image sensor and includes a focus lens, a zoom lens, and the like, and uses a line exposure sequential readout method (rolling shutter) with different exposure timing for each line. An analog imaging signal corresponding to the optical image is output for each line.

  The unit circuit 6 is a circuit to which an analog imaging signal corresponding to the optical image of the subject output from the imaging unit 4 is input, and a CDS that holds the input imaging signal and a gain adjustment that amplifies the imaging signal. An amplifier (AGC), an A / D converter (ADC) that converts the amplified imaging signal into a digital imaging signal, and the like are configured. The output signal of the imaging unit 4 passes through the unit circuit 6 and is sent to the signal processing unit 7 as a digital signal.

  The sent digital signal is subjected to various signal processing by the signal processing unit 7, then sent to the image processing unit 8, subjected to various image processing, and supplied to the display unit 9, so Displayed as a view image. Further, at the time of image recording, the signal processed by the image processing unit 8 is further encoded and recorded in an image recording unit (including an external recording medium) 10 and read out from the image recording unit 10 at the time of image reproduction. The processed image data is decoded by the image processing unit 8 and displayed on the display unit 9.

  Further, a TG (Timing Generator) 11, a ROM 12, and a buffer memory 13 are connected to the bus line 20. The TG 11 generates a frame synchronization signal (sensor V synchronization signal) having a timing and a frame period set by the control unit 3, and drives the imaging unit 4, the unit circuit 6, and the LED 17 at a timing according to the frame synchronization signal. The ROM 12 stores program AE data constituting a program diagram showing a combination of an aperture value (F) and a shutter speed corresponding to an appropriate exposure value (EV) at the time of shooting such as still image shooting and moving image shooting. The EV value table is also stored. Then, the charge accumulation time set by the control unit 3 based on the shutter speed set by the program diagram is supplied as a shutter pulse to the imaging unit 4 via the TG 11, and the imaging unit 4 operates in accordance with this to expose the exposure period. The exposure timing is controlled. Further, the ROM 12 stores a program shown in a flowchart to be described later and various programs necessary for functioning as a digital camera.

  The buffer memory 13 is a buffer for temporarily storing image data and the like, and is also used as a working memory for the control unit 3. That is, the image processing unit 8 performs processing such as pedestal clamping on the Bayer data sent from the signal processing unit 7, converts it into RGB data, and further converts the RGB data into a luminance (Y) signal and a color difference ( UV) signal. The YUV data converted by the image processing unit 8 stores data for one frame in the buffer memory 13. One frame of YUV data stored in the buffer memory 13 is sent to the display unit 9, where it is converted into a video signal and then displayed as a live view image.

  Note that when a shutter key operation by the user is detected in the still image shooting mode, the imaging unit 4 and the unit circuit 6 are switched to a still image shooting drive system or drive timing different from that for live view image shooting. The image processing is executed, and the YUV data for one frame stored in the buffer memory 13 by the still image capturing processing is encoded after data compression by the JPEG method or the like by the image processing unit 8, and the file is stored in the buffer memory 13. Then, it is recorded as still image data in the image recording unit 10 via the bus line 20.

  When a shooting start instruction is detected in the moving image shooting mode, shooting processing is started, and YUV data for a plurality of frames until the shooting end instruction is detected is stored in the buffer memory 13. The YUV data for a plurality of frames stored in the buffer memory 13 is sent to the control unit 3 after the moving image end instruction, and is encoded after data compression by the JPEG method or the like (a predetermined MPEG codec in the case of moving image shooting). Then, the file name is given as frame data via the buffer memory 13 and the bus line 20 and is written to the image recording unit 10. In addition, the control unit 3 expands the still image or moving image data read from the image recording unit 10 during reproduction of the still image or moving image, and operates the image data in the buffer memory 13 as still image data or moving image frame data. Expand into the area.

  Further, a key input unit 14, a wireless I / F 21, an ID number storage unit 22, a GPS (Global Positioning System) 23, an orientation sensor 24, and a distance measurement sensor 25 are connected to the bus line 20. The key input unit 14 includes a plurality of operation keys such as a shutter key, a mode setting key, and a power key. The key input unit 14 detects a key input signal corresponding to a key operation by the user and outputs the detected key input signal to the control unit 3.

The wireless I / F 21 is an interface that performs a link with other cameras using close proximity wireless communication such as Bluetooth (registered trademark). The ID number storage unit 22 stores different ID numbers (natural numbers different from each other in the present embodiment) for each camera 1A to 1F, and stores ID numbers obtained from other devices. Has a list area. The GPS 23 receives radio waves transmitted from a plurality of positioning satellites (GPS satellites) by a GPS receiving antenna, thereby acquiring position data composed of latitude and longitude indicating the current position, and the acquired position data is transmitted to the camera. Is supplied to the control unit 3 as position information indicating the current position. The azimuth sensor 24 detects the direction in which the optical axis of the imaging lens 5 faces in the camera, and supplies this to the control unit 3 as the photographing direction. The distance measuring sensor 25 detects a distance to the subject, particularly a distance to a specific subject described later, and supplies the detected distance to the control unit 3.
The power supply unit 26 includes a battery and supplies power to each unit from the battery.

  In addition, the first camera 1A to the sixth camera 1F may not include all the cameras having the configuration shown in FIG. 2 but may include a camera that does not include the GPS 23 and the direction sensor 24. And

  In the present embodiment according to the above configuration, when the power is turned on by the user's operation on the key input unit 14 and the synchronous shooting mode is set for each camera 1, the control unit 3 is stored in the ROM 12. According to the program, the master / slave determination process shown in the flowchart of FIG. 3 which is a process common to all cameras is executed. That is, the control unit 3 determines whether or not the current state of the own device can participate in simultaneous shooting with another camera (step SA1). If the synchronous shooting mode is set for the camera and the camera can participate in the simultaneous shooting, the control unit proceeds to the next step. Then, the ID number unique to each camera stored in the ID number storage unit 22 of the own device is transmitted from the wireless I / F 21 to the outside and notified to the other device by proximity wireless (step SA2).

  Next, the GPS 23 and the azimuth sensor 24 are provided. Therefore, it is determined from these whether or not the position and photographing direction of the own device can be acquired (step SA3). That is, as described above, the first camera 1A to the sixth camera 1F do not have all the cameras shown in FIG. 2 but include cameras that do not include the GPS 23 and the direction sensor 24. There may be. If the camera does not include the GPS 23 and the azimuth sensor 24, the determination in step SA3 is NO. Therefore, the process proceeds from step SA3 to step SA9, and the own apparatus is set as a slave camera.

  Accordingly, it is possible to prevent inconvenience that a camera that does not include the GPS 23 and the azimuth sensor 24 and is inappropriate to be a master camera is selected as the master camera, and an appropriate master camera can be selected.

  The control unit 3 of the camera 1 that includes the GPS 23 and the azimuth sensor 24 and can acquire the position of the own device and the shooting direction from the GPS 23 and the direction sensor 24 proceeds from step SA3 to step SA4. Then, it is determined whether or not a notification of an ID number not yet stored in the list (ID number storage unit 22) of the own device has been received from another device (step SA4). If a notification of an ID number not stored in the list of the own device is received from another device, the notified ID number is added to the list (step SA5), and the process returns to step SA4. Therefore, among the six cameras from the first camera 1A to the sixth camera 1F, until the ID numbers of the cameras having the GPS 23 and the direction sensor 24 are stored in the list of each camera 1, steps SA2 → SA3 → The loop process of SA2 is repeated. Further, by repeating this loop process, the ID number storage unit 22 of the camera having the GPS 23 and the direction sensor 24 similarly stores the ID number of the camera having the GPS 23 and the direction sensor 24. A list will be formed.

  Therefore, each camera 1 determines whether or not the youngest ID number belongs to the same list in the same list (step SA6). If the youngest ID number is not that of the own device, the own device is set as a slave camera (step SA9), and this master / slave determination process is terminated.

  If the youngest ID number is that of the own device, the own device is set as the master camera (step SA7). Therefore, by executing the processing up to step SA5 in the camera system shown in FIG. 1, one of the six cameras from the first camera 1A to the sixth camera 1F is determined as the master camera. The other camera is determined as the slave camera. For example, as shown in FIG. 1B, the camera 1B is determined as the master camera, and is determined as the cameras 1A, 1C, 1D, 1E, and 1F slave cameras.

  As described above, in the present embodiment, since the camera with the smallest ID number is determined as the master camera, the master camera determination process can be simplified, and rapid imaging can be started. Of course, the present invention is not limited to this, and the control capability of each camera (capability such as the processing speed of the control unit 3) may be compared to make the camera 1 having the highest control capability the master camera. In this way, the entire system can be accurately controlled by effectively using a high-performance camera.

  Thereafter, a plurality of cameras corresponding to the ID numbers in the strike including the own device are determined as candidates for simultaneous shooting (step SA6), and the master / slave determination process is terminated. Therefore, by executing the above master / slave determination process in the camera system shown in FIG. 1, the master camera and the slave camera are determined as described above, and the first camera 1A to the sixth camera 1F are determined. It will be determined as a candidate for simultaneous shooting.

  Therefore, according to the present embodiment, it is possible to automatically determine the camera constituting the camera system and the master / slave in the camera system without a manual designation operation by the user. Pre-operation can be simplified.

  Of course, the user constituting the camera system and the master / slave in the camera system may be determined by a user operation on the key input unit 14. In this way, the user's intention can be reflected in the determination of the camera and master / slave constituting the camera system, the camera system is configured with an arbitrary camera, and any arbitrary camera is set as the master. Can do.

  FIG. 4 is a flowchart showing a processing procedure of the master camera process executed by the control unit 3 included in the camera (hereinafter simply referred to as a master camera) set as the master camera in the process of step SA7. The control unit 3 of the master camera selects a specific subject to be photographed from the photographed image (step SB1). Here, the photographed image is picked up by the image pickup unit 4, sent to the unit circuit 6, the signal processing unit 7, and the image processing unit 8, subjected to various image processing, and supplied to the display unit 9 for display. It is a live view image. Therefore, the control unit 3 selects, as the specific subject, a subject existing in the focus frame in the live view image, or a subject specified by the user through a cursor operation or the like in the live view image, for example.

  Next, the feature information of the selected specific subject, for example, each feature quantity data of hue, saturation, brightness, contour shape, and size of the specific subject is acquired (step SB2). Next, the distance measuring sensor 25 is activated to detect the distance to the selected specific subject (step SB3), and based on the output signals from the GPS 23 and the direction sensor 24, the position of the own device (master camera) and The shooting direction is detected (step SB4).

  Further, the position of the specific subject is calculated based on the detected distance to the specific subject, the position of the own device, and the shooting direction (step SB5). In other words, the distance from the master camera to the specific subject, the position (latitude / longitude) of the master camera, and the direction (azimuth) in which the optical axis of the imaging lens 5 faces the specific subject obtained from the shooting direction can be obtained. For example, the position (latitude / longitude) of the specific subject can be calculated. Therefore, in step SB5, the position of the specific subject is calculated based on the information detected in the preceding step.

  Thereafter, the position information indicating the position of the specific subject calculated in step SB5 and the characteristic information of the specific subject acquired in step SB2 are transmitted from the wireless I / F 21 to each slave camera (step SB6). Subsequently, it is determined whether or not notification has been received from all the slave cameras regarding whether or not the specific subject is ready to be photographed (step SB7). That is, it is determined whether all slave cameras have received a notification that “ready to take a specific subject” or “not ready to take a specific subject”. Until one of these notifications is received from all slave cameras, the process waits while repeating the determination in step SA7 without proceeding to the next step.

  As a result, if any of the notifications is received from all the slave cameras, the slave cameras that are not ready to shoot the specific subject are excluded from the cameras participating in the simultaneous shooting based on the contents of the received notifications (step SB8). ). Then, all slave cameras participating in the simultaneous shooting, that is, all remaining slave cameras after being excluded in step SB8 are instructed, and the own device also starts the simultaneous shooting (step SB9), and the shooting is finished. The storage of the YUV data for a plurality of frames in the buffer memory 13 is started.

  In other words, in the present embodiment, slave cameras that are not ready to shoot a specific subject are excluded from cameras participating in simultaneous shooting without waiting until they are ready, and simultaneous shooting is performed. Therefore, it is possible to start simultaneous shooting quickly. In addition, synchronous moving image shooting can be performed using the maximum number of slave cameras that can participate in simultaneous shooting at that time.

  In the present embodiment, the master camera (own device) also participates in simultaneous shooting, and synchronous video shooting is performed using more cameras. However, the slave camera may be instructed only without participating in shooting with the master camera. In this way, a plurality of slave cameras can be controlled appropriately and reliably within the processing capability of the control unit 3 of the master camera.

  Subsequently, it is determined whether or not the simultaneous shooting by the own device and the slave camera is to be ended (step SB10). This determination of the end of simultaneous shooting is made based on whether or not the end of shooting has been instructed by a user operation on the key input unit 14 of the master camera, or whether or not the preset duration of simultaneous shooting has ended. to decide.

  If it is determined that the simultaneous shooting is to be ended, the wireless I / F 21 is activated to instruct all slave cameras participating in the simultaneous shooting to execute the simultaneous shooting by proximity wireless, and the own device also ends the simultaneous shooting ( Step SB11). Further, based on the position of the specific subject, the start date / time of the simultaneous shooting, the end date / time of the simultaneous shooting, or the position of the own device, a name as identification information for identifying the current simultaneous shooting is determined (step SB12). The elements used for determining the name of the position of the specific subject, the start date and time of the simultaneous shooting, the end date and time of the simultaneous shooting, the position of the own device, etc. are examples, and the names that can be used to identify the current simultaneous shooting, More preferably, other elements may be used as long as the name can identify the specific subject.

  Then, the determined name is transmitted to all the slave cameras that participated in the simultaneous photographing, and the photographed image of the own device is stored by adding the name (step SB13). That is, the name is transmitted to the slave camera via the wireless I / F 21. Also, YUV data for a plurality of frames stored in the buffer memory 13 of the own device is sent to the control unit 3, encoded after data compression by a predetermined MPEG codec, and the moving image is transmitted via the buffer memory 13 and the bus line 20. The name is attached as data and written in the image recording unit 10. As a result, in the image recording unit 10 of the master camera, moving image data obtained by photographing the specific subject by the master camera in the current simultaneous photographing is stored with a unique name.

  FIG. 5 is a flowchart showing a processing procedure of slave camera processing executed by the control unit 3 included in the camera (hereinafter simply referred to as slave camera) set as the slave camera in the processing of step SA9. The control unit 3 of the slave camera determines whether or not the position information and feature information of the specific subject transmitted from the master camera in the process of step SB6 has been received (step SC1), and waits until these are received. .

  If the position information and the characteristic information of the specific subject are received, it is determined by the GPS 23 and the azimuth sensor 24 whether or not the position and photographing direction of the own device can be acquired (step SC2). If it can be acquired, the GPS 23 and the direction sensor 24 acquire the position and shooting direction of the own device (step SC3).

  Furthermore, the position of the specific subject on the live view image or the direction outside the live view image is specified based on the position indicated by the received position information of the specific subject, the position of the own device, and the shooting direction (step SC4).

  That is, when the specific subject exists in the live view image displayed on the display unit 9 of the slave camera, the coordinates on the live view image, which is the position of the specific subject on the live view image, are specified. Further, when there is no specific subject in the live view image displayed on the display unit 9 of the slave camera, it is specified in which direction the specific subject exists with respect to the displayed live view image. .

  At this time, when a specific subject exists in the live view image, the control unit 3 calculates the distance to the specific subject based on the position and the position of the own device. Then, the focus lens of the imaging lens 5 is controlled to focus a specific subject in the live view image. As a result, the specific subject becomes clear in the live view image, so that the user can easily confirm the specific subject, and it is possible to obtain a shooting result in which the specific subject is in focus in the simultaneous shooting described later.

  Thereafter, the position or direction of the specified subject is displayed on the live view image (step SC5). As an example of this display, when a specific subject is present in the live view image, the specific subject is surrounded and displayed by a frame, its outline is highlighted, a color is displayed in a specific color, etc. The background and other subjects can be clearly identified visually. When the specific subject does not exist in the live view image, an arrow is displayed on the live view image to indicate that the specific subject exists in the direction indicated by the arrow.

  On the other hand, as a result of the determination in step SC2, the control unit 3 of the slave camera that cannot acquire the position and shooting direction of the own device proceeds to step SC6 and displays a specific subject corresponding to the received feature information. Detection is performed by image recognition in the live view image displayed in the section 9 (step SC6). The position of the detected specific subject is displayed on the live view image (step SC7). When displaying the position of the specific subject, the specific subject in the live view image is displayed surrounded by a frame, the outline thereof is highlighted, or the specific subject is displayed, as in the display example in step SC5 described above. What is necessary is just to make it visually distinguishable from the background and other subjects, such as colored display.

  Therefore, as with the processing result in step SC5 when the GPS 23 and the direction sensor 24 can acquire the position and shooting direction of the own apparatus, it is impossible to acquire the position and shooting direction of the own apparatus. Even in this case, the position of the specific subject can be displayed in the live view image based on the processing result in step SC7.

  Then, in step SC8 following step SC5 or step SC7, it is determined whether or not a predetermined time has elapsed since the reception of information (position information, feature information) from the master camera (step SC8). If the predetermined time has not yet elapsed, it is determined whether or not the specific subject is at the center of the live view image (step SC9). If the specific subject is in the center of the live view image, the process proceeds to the next step SC10. If the specific subject is not in the center of the live view image, the process returns to step SC2.

  Therefore, the process from step SC2 is repeatedly executed until the specific subject is in the center of the live view image until a predetermined time elapses after receiving information from the master camera. During this time, the user looks at the live view image displayed on the display unit 9 of the slave camera to check whether or not the specific subject is in the center of the live view image. The shooting direction and position of the slave camera are adjusted manually so as to be in the center of the image.

  At this time, even if the specific subject does not exist in the live view image, the position and shooting direction of the slave camera are greatly deviated from the specific subject, and even if the specific subject does not exist in the live view image, the step By the processing in SC4 and SC5, for example, an arrow is displayed on the live view image, indicating that the specific subject exists in the direction indicated by the arrow. Therefore, the user can adjust the shooting direction of the slave camera in accordance with the arrow so that the specific subject becomes the center of the live view image.

  As described above, when the user adjusts the shooting direction or the like of the slave camera so that the specific subject is positioned at the center of the live view image, the control unit 3 of the slave camera performs processing from step SC9 to step SC10 and subsequent steps. To proceed. First, the master camera is notified via the wireless I / F 21 that it is ready to photograph a specific subject (step SC10).

  Then, the control unit 3 of the master camera that has received this transmits an instruction to start simultaneous shooting to the slave camera in the process of step SB9. Therefore, the control unit 3 of the slave camera determines whether or not the execution start is instructed from the master camera (step SC11), and starts the simultaneous photographing when the execution start is instructed (step SC12). That is, as described in step SB9, YUV data for a plurality of frames until the end of photographing is started to be stored in the buffer memory 13.

  Next, it is determined whether or not the master camera has instructed the end of simultaneous shooting (step SC13). When the master camera completes the simultaneous shooting, it instructs the end of the simultaneous shooting in the process of step SB11, so it is determined whether or not this execution end instruction has been received. If the execution end instruction is received, the simultaneous photographing is ended (step SC14).

  Further, it is determined whether a name for identifying the current simultaneous photographing is received from the master camera (step SC15). Since the master camera transmits the determined name to all the slave cameras that participated in the simultaneous shooting in the process of step SB13, it is determined whether or not this name has been received. If this name is received, the received name is added and the captured image of the own device is stored (step SC16). That is, YUV data for a plurality of frames stored in its own buffer memory 13 is sent to the control unit 3 and encoded after data compression by a predetermined MPEG codec. The name is attached as data and written in the image recording unit 10.

Therefore, when the master camera process shown in the flowchart of FIG. 4 and the slave camera process shown in the flowchart of FIG. 5 are executed by each camera, the moving image data having the following characteristic items is stored in each camera. It is stored in the image recording unit 10.
(A) The shooting start point and the end point are the same.
(B) Accordingly, the time length of the moving image is the same.
(C) The position of the specific subject in the image (in the frame) is the center.
(D) The same name is added.
(E) The added name can identify the current simultaneous photographing such as the position of the specific subject, the simultaneous photographing start date and time, and the simultaneous photographing end date and time.
(F) The same name is also added to image data taken by a camera that does not include the GPS 23 and the direction sensor 24.
(G) Since the relative positions of the cameras with respect to the specific subject are different from each other, the moving image data is obtained by photographing the specific subject from different directions.

Therefore,
[1] The feature item (A) makes it possible to simultaneously reproduce a plurality of moving images having the same shooting start point and end point of moving images to be simultaneously reproduced.
[2] The feature item (B) makes it possible to simultaneously reproduce a plurality of moving images having the same length of moving images to be simultaneously reproduced.
[3] According to the feature item (C), it is possible to obtain moving image shooting in which a specific subject is reliably shot by a plurality of cameras. Moreover, since the specific subject exists in the center of the image, the specific subject can be reliably and properly photographed by each of the plurality of cameras.
[4] By simultaneously reproducing the moving image data with the same name added according to the feature item (D), it is possible to simultaneously reproduce the moving image in which the same specific subject is simultaneously captured.
[5] The name added by the feature item (E) is created based on the position of the specific subject, the start date / time of simultaneous shooting, the end date / time of simultaneous shooting, the position of the own device, etc. It represents the simultaneous shooting and a specific subject. Accordingly, even when the user selects the moving image data from the plurality of moving image data recorded in the image recording unit 10 at the time of reproduction by using the key (image data selection means) provided in the key input unit 14, You can make a selection without.
[6] According to the feature item (F), even image data captured by a camera that does not include the GPS 23 and the azimuth sensor 24 can be stored by adding position information as a name.
[7] According to the feature item (G), it is possible to obtain a photographing result of photographing a specific subject from a desired multi-direction.

  As a result, according to [3] and [7], in simultaneous shooting using a plurality of cameras, it is possible to reliably obtain a shooting result of shooting a specific subject that is a shooting target of simultaneous shooting from a desired multi-direction.

  As a result of the determination in step SC8, if a predetermined time has elapsed since the information from the master camera was received, the master camera is notified that preparation for photographing a specific subject cannot be performed (step SC17), this slave camera processing is terminated. In this case, it is assumed that the user has left without confirming the shooting state of the slave camera, and the user does not feel the necessity of simultaneous shooting by the slave camera when viewed from the shooting direction or the like. Therefore, in this case, by not allowing the slave camera to participate in the current simultaneous shooting, it is possible to reflect the user's intention on the participating slave camera.

  In the present embodiment, a configuration is shown in which the present invention is applied to a system in which a plurality of cameras start and end shooting simultaneously and shoot a moving image of a specific subject. However, as described above, the predetermined simultaneous shooting process according to the present invention is a process in which a plurality of cameras perform one or a plurality of synchronous or asynchronous shootings at least in the same time zone, and is not necessarily performed every time. There is no need to match the shooting timings of a plurality of cameras. Therefore, for example, the cameras 1A to 1F start shooting sequentially with a time difference, or the cameras 1A, 1C, 1E start simultaneous shooting after the time difference, and the cameras 1A, 1C, 1E start simultaneous shooting. The present invention can also be applied to a system in which a plurality of cameras capture a specific subject at different shooting timings, such as cameras 1B, 1D, and 1F arranged between 1C and 1F start simultaneous shooting with a time difference.

  In short, the present invention can be applied to any system as long as each system captures a specific subject, which is a common subject.
