Title: IMAGE-CAPTURING SYSTEM AND IMAGE-CAPTURING CONTROL METHOD
Abstract:
The objective of the invention is to provide an image-capturing system and an image-capturing control method that improve visibility and eliminate unnaturalness in image displaying associated with the adjustment of the optical axis direction of a pan-tilt camera. This objective is achieved by an image-capturing system comprising: a camera that acquires subject image data by capturing an image of a subject; a pan-tilt means that rotates the camera in a pan direction and a tilt direction orthogonal to the pan direction; an input means with which a user designates a designated point at a discretionary position on a display screen; a designated position acquisition means that acquires positional information on said designated point; a pan-tilt control means that rectilinearly moves the optical axis of the camera from the current position to the position of a designated subject corresponding to the designated point and thereby rectilinearly moves the designated subject from the current position on the display screen to the center of the display screen; and an image processing means that rotates the subject image data displayed on the display screen about the optical axis of the camera, and matches the up/down direction after moving the optical axis with the up/down direction before said movement.
