Abstract

PURPOSE: To prevent the execution of photographing in an unwillingly inclined state by incorporating an instrument for measuring the inclination of a picture into a video camera main body and an indicator for indicating the degree of inclination. CONSTITUTION: This video camera 1 is provided with an instrument 2 for measuring the inclined angle of a picture and the indicator 3 indicating the degree of the measured inclination. The indicator 3 is provided in a viewer frame 4, or an external indicator 9 is fixed to the outside of the camera body so as to be easily observed. The camera 1 is also provided with a speaker 5 and an earphone jack 6 so as to detect the degree of inclination by a change in sound. In the case of measuring the inclination angle of a picture, the angle is measured by applying the principle of a horizontal parallel plate, a level or the like. The measured inclination angle is converted into an electric signal and displayed so as to be superposed to a picture on the monitor screen of the finder 4 to be used also as a display device. The measured inclination angle is also converted into an electric signal for changing the frequency of sound correspondingly to the inclination angle of the picture to sound the speaker 5 or an earphone.

Description

Detailed Description of the Invention

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a video camera with an image tilt angle display, which is provided with a display for measuring the tilt of an image captured by a video camera and displaying the degree of tilt.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art Conventionally, when shooting a vertically standing object with a video camera, the photographer perceptually compares the frame of the viewfinder with the vertical direction of the object, and the image is unintentionally tilted. Sometimes it is taken without noticing that. Therefore, when a video-recorded tape is played back, the image is slanted, unsightly, and apt to be unreadable. Also, it is difficult to see the degree of tilt of the image unless you look through the viewfinder to see the image.

[0003]

[Problems to be Solved by the Invention]

I. When shooting a subject with a video camera, the image was unintentionally tilted, which was unsightly and unreadable. B. If you do not look into the viewfinder, it will be difficult to understand how the image is being tilted. C. As a special effect, when intentionally tilting an image to shoot, the tilt angle of the image was ambiguous. The present invention has been made to solve the above drawbacks.

[0004]

A video camera (1) is provided with a device (2) for measuring an inclination angle of an image. An indicator (3) is provided to display the measured degree of tilt. The display unit (3) is mounted in the viewfinder (4) or on the outside of the main body of the video camera so that it can be easily seen. Further, a speaker (5) and an earphone jack (6) are attached so that the degree of inclination can be recognized by the change in sound. The present invention is a video camera having an image tilt angle display having the above-mentioned configuration.

[0005]

When used in the present invention, if the camera body tilt is adjusted so that the tilt angle is zero or any angle while taking a picture while viewing the display of the tilt angle of the image, the image is inadvertently displayed. No more tilted shots.

[0006]

Embodiments of the present invention will be described below. (A) A video camera is provided with a device for measuring the tilt angle of an image. (B) A display device for displaying the tilt angle of the image is provided. The present invention has the above configuration. When using the present invention, one looks at the display on the indicator. Alternatively, the degree of inclination of the image can be known by listening to the sound. The image tilt angle measuring device for measuring the tilt angle of the image is built in the camera body and measures the tilt angle by applying the principle of a horizontal parallel plate or a level. The measured tilt angle is converted into an electric signal to be displayed numerically or pictorially, and is displayed superimposed on the image on the monitor screen in the viewfinder which is also used as a display. Further, a light-emitting body such as a light-emitting diode is arranged around the monitor screen in the viewfinder, and the light-emitting body is turned on or blinked depending on the tilt angle. When an image of a subject standing vertically is taken, the state in which the image appears vertically is set as a tilt angle of zero. The image taken with the camera tilted tilts on the screen, so the value of this tilt angle is superimposed on the image on the monitor screen and displayed in numerical or pictorial form. Further, the display device is a display such as a liquid crystal display mounted outside the viewfinder at a position where the photographer can easily see it, and the tilt angle is expressed by a numerical value or a picture. Further, the tilt angle of the image measured by the image tilt angle measuring device causes a light emitting body such as a light emitting diode mounted outside the finder to be turned on or blinked depending on the degree of tilt of the image. In addition, it converts the sound frequency into an electrical signal that changes according to the angle of inclination, and sounds the speaker or earphones. The photographer looks at the display on the display. Or ask. Then, while confirming the display of the degree of inclination of the subject, the inclination of the camera body is corrected and the image is taken.

[0007]

By using the present invention, it is possible to prevent a vertically standing object from being photographed with an involuntary inclination, so that the photographed image is slanted and unsightly, which makes the image unlooking. Disappears. In addition, as a special effect, when the image is intentionally tilted when the image is taken, the tilt angle of the image is displayed, so that the tilt can be easily set and reproducibility is also possible.
