Title
(EN) Image photographing apparatus and image photographing method for generating a synthesis image from a plurality of images
Abstract
(EN)

An image photographing apparatus and an image photographing method are provided. The image photographing apparatus includes: a plurality of image capturers respectively comprising lenses having different focal distances and respectively configured to capture a plurality of images having different resolutions; a storage configured to store the plurality of images captured by the plurality of image capturers; an image processor configured to adjust properties of the plurality of images to correspond to each other; a controller configured to, in response to a magnification change command being input, control the image processor to synthesize the plurality of images of which the properties are adjusted and generate a synthesis image of a magnification changed according to the magnification change command; and a display configured to display the synthesis image.
