Interchangeable-lens camera, and viewfinder display method


The information about an interchangeable lens is acquired, and the size of an image capture range, which is the range corresponding to a capture image in an optical image, is calculated based on the information about the interchangeable lens. When the image capture range is smaller than or equal to a range to be shown by the angular field of the optical image, a first image showing the image capture range in the optical image is displayed on a display device, and when the image capture range is larger than the range to be shown by the angular field of the optical image, a second image different from the first image showing the image capture range in the optical image is displayed on the display device such that the second image is superimposed on at least either of the four corner vicinities and four side vicinities of the optical image..

Real-time registration of a stereo depth camera array


Real-time registration of a camera array in an image capture device may be implemented in the field by adjusting a selected subset of independent parameters in a mapping function, termed registration coefficients, which have been determined to have the largest contribution to registration errors so that the array can be maintained in its initial factory-optimized calibrated state. By having to adjust only a relatively small subset of registration coefficients from within a larger set of coefficients (which are typically determined using a specialized calibration target in a factory setting), far fewer matching patterns need to be identified in respective images captured by cameras in the array in order to correct for registration errors.
