Title: (EN) Electronic device and method of controlling same for capturing digital images
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

A portable electronic device includes an input device, an input device housing, a display, and a display housing coupled to the input device housing. The display housing is moveable relative to the i housing by sliding between an extended position in which the input device is exposed and a contracted position in which the input device is covered by the display housing. The portable electronic device also includes a digital camera housed by the display housing. The input device housing includes an auxiliary camera lens fixed to a body such that the auxiliary camera lens is aligned with the digital camera for obtaining digital images utilizing the auxiliary camera lens when the display housing is in the contracted position, and the auxiliary camera lens is out of alignment with the digital camera for obtaining digital images without the auxiliary camera lens when the display housing is in the extended position.
