Patent Images

1. A camera comprising:

  • an image sensing device having an array of pixels arranged vertically and horizontally in a grid pattern;

    an image-instability detector, configured to detect an amount of image-instability of the camera;

    a signal processing unit configured to form image signals with a predetermined view angle by using effective pixels of the image sensing device, and;

    during monitoring in a static image mode, to form image signals with a first view angle by using a first effective set of pixels of the image sensing device,during recording in the static image mode, to form image signals by using all effective pixels of the image sensing device, andduring recording in a moving video mode, to form image signals with a second view angle, different from the first view angle, by using a second effective set of pixels which is a portion of the array of pixels of the image sensing device, and to change a position of the second effective set of pixels according to the amount of image-instability detected by the image-instability detector, in order to correct the image-instability; and

    a display unit configured to display an image corresponding to the image signals formed by the signal processing unit.
