Abstract

PURPOSE: To perform focusing operation at a high speed by shifting an image pickup optical system in a specific direction from where the sharpness of an object image is maximum and stopping the system, and then determining the driving direction of an image pickup optical system based on information on the detected sharpness and the direction.
CONSTITUTION: An image signal I(t) obtained from an image pickup element 1 is inputted to a differentiation circuit 2 and an absolute value circuit 3 to calculates a signal dI/(dt). The signal dI/(dt) is supplied to logarithmic circuits 7 and 5 through a delay circuit 6 and a ΔI calculating circuit 4 and both obtained logarithmic values are supplied to a subtracter circuit 8. The output signal P(t) of the circuit 8 is compared with a previously given threshold value P0 and when the counted value of a counter 11 exceeds a specific value, focusing is decided. The image pickup optical system is stopped after shifted in the specific direction from the position where the sharpness of the object image is maximum within this focusing range, and the driving direction of the image pickup optical system is determined based on the information on the detected sharpness and its direction after the stop. Thus, the focusing is carried out at a high speed.
