Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MANAGING ORIENTATION IN DEVICES WITH MULTIPLE IMAGING SENSORS
Abstract:
Described herein are methods and devices that capture a stereoscopic image with a device that has a first pair of imaging sensors and a second pair of imaging sensors. When a stereoscopic image is to be taken, the orientation of the device is detected and the appropriate pair of imaging sensors is selected based on the detected device orientation. A stereoscopic image pair may then be captured with the selected pair of imaging sensors.
