Title: IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE, IMAGE PROCESSING METHOD, COMPUTER PROGRAM, AND ELECTRONIC DEVICE
Abstract:
[Problem] To provide a novel and improved image processing device capable of simultaneously reducing power consumption and suppressing the occurrence of shutter lag. [Solution] Provided is an image processing device comprising: a pixel addition unit that performs pixel addition on pixel signals output from an imaging element; a storage unit that stores at least pixel-added signals after pixel addition has been performed by the pixel addition unit; a detection unit that detects the occurrence of recording instructions for an image, on the basis of the pixel signals; and a signal processing unit that obtains the pixel-added signals stored in the storage unit, in a state in which the detection unit has not detected the occurrence of recording instructions, and, if the detection unit has detected the occurrence of a recording instruction, obtains the pixel signal in accordance with the recording instruction.
