Title (EN) IMAGE SENSING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE DETECTION D'IMAGES
Abstract:
(EN) An image sensing apparatus has an image sensing element which accumulates received light as a charge, a mechanical shutter which travels to shield the image sensing element, and a scan unit which makes a scan for starting charge accumulation. The image sensing apparatus executes the scan for starting charge accumulation prior to traveling of the mechanical shutter and controls the scan for starting charge accumulation and traveling of the shutter to serve as a front curtain and a rear curtain of a shutter. Note that a scan pattern setting unit (113b) sets the scan pattern of the charge accumulation start scan based on information associated with a mounted photographing lens.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à un appareil de détection d'images, qui comporte un élément de détection d'images qui accumule la lumière reçue sous forme de charge, un obturateur mécanique qui se déplace afin de couvrir l'élément de détection d'images, et une unité de balayage qui réalise un balayage permettant de démarrer l'accumulation de charge. L'appareil de détection d'images exécute le balayage permettant de démarrer l'accumulation de charge avant tout déplacement de l'obturateur mécanique, et commande le balayage permettant l'accumulation de charge et le déplacement de l'obturateur afin que ce dernier fasse fonction de volet avant et de volet arrière de l'obturateur. Une unité de définition de motif de balayage (113 dés) définit le motif de balayage du balayage de démarrage de l'accumulation de charge, sur la base d'informations associées à une lentille photographique montée.
