Title (EN) IMAGE CAPTURING APPARATUS AND METHOD OF CONTROLLING THE SAME
(FR) APPAREIL DE CAPTURE D'IMAGES ET PROCÉDÉ POUR LE COMMANDER
Abstract:
(EN) An image capturing apparatus includes a plurality of unit pixels arranged in matrix and each including a plurality of photoelectric conversion portions, and an AD converter configured to receive a signal from each unit pixel via a vertical signal line and operate in the first AD conversion mode when being set in the first readout mode, and operates in the second AD conversion mode different from the first AD conversion mode when being set in the second readout mode. The first readout mode is a mode of independently outputting signals from a plurality of photoelectric conversion portions to a corresponding vertical signal line. The second readout mode is a mode of composing and outputting signals from a plurality of photoelectric conversion portions to a corresponding vertical signal line.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil de capture d'images comprenant une pluralité de pixels unitaires disposés en matrice et comprenant chacun une pluralité de parties de conversion photoélectrique, et un convertisseur AN configuré pour recevoir un signal en provenance de chaque pixel unitaire via une ligne verticale de signal et fonctionner dans le premier mode de conversion AN lorsqu'il est placé dans le premier mode de lecture, et pour fonctionner dans le deuxième mode de conversion AN différent du premier mode de conversion AN lorsqu'il est placé dans le deuxième mode de lecture. Le premier mode de lecture est un mode consistant à délivrer indépendamment des signaux provenant d'une pluralité de parties de conversion photoélectrique à une ligne verticale de signal correspondante. Le deuxième mode de lecture est un mode consistant à composer et à délivrer des signaux provenant d'une pluralité de parties de conversion photoélectrique à une ligne verticale de signal correspondante.
