Title (EN) IMPROVED SYSTEM AND MWTHOD FOR EXHIBITING IMAGE FOCUS INFORMATION ON A VIEWFINDER
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE AMELIORES POUR LA PRESENTATION D'INFORMATION DE MISE AU POINT D'IMAGE SUR UN VISEUR
Abstract:
(EN) An improved system and method for providing information concerning the level of focus of objects appearing on a viewfinder for a digital camera system. The present invention analyzes a plurality of objects or regions of an image that is being shown to a user through a viewfinder of an electronic device. The system creates an overview map that matches the objects within the image, and colors are applied to objects within the overview map, representing the focus quality levels of the respective objects. The overview map is superimposed over the image, providing the user with information concerning the relative focus quality of the respective objects.
(FR) La présente invention a trait à un système et un procédé améliorés pour la fourniture d'information concernant le niveau de mise au point d'objets présentés sur un viseur pour un système de caméra numérique. La présente invention analyse une pluralité d'objets ou de zones d'une image qui est présentée à un utilisateur sur un viseur d'un dispositif électronique. Le système crée un carte globale qui correspond aux objets au sein de l'image, et des couleurs sont appliquées aux objets au sein de la carte globale, représentant les niveaux de qualité de mise au point sur les objets respectifs. La carte globale est superposée à l'image, fournissant à l'utilisateur une information concernant la qualité de mise au point relative des objets respectifs.
