Abstract

Nowadays, cameras are used everywhere. However, the shooting ranges of the different cameras are different, and how to get the actual shooting range of a camera is still difficult. Our idea is to add a light source with linear lights (just like laser pointer) to show the range of the camera. It can help users to precisely identify the shooting ranges.

show camera range

Nowadays, cameras are used everywhere, for example, take photos, video chat. But the ranges of the different cameras are different (like picture 1), and how to get the range of a camera is not convenient for the end users. It is not easy to make some people into the range of a camera to take photos, a user may change the cloth in the range of a camera which is used for video chat, and these are not the expected scenarios.

Picture 1 Solution: Add a light source with linear light (just like laser pointer) to show the range of the camera. The linear light will be used to show the edge of the range, and the direction of the light can be adjusted when the range of the camera is changed. The linear light can be turned on/off.

Advantage: With the help of the linear light, it is easy for the user to know the range of the camera.

a. New light source with linear light will be added near the camera, based on the known range of the camera, the linear light will be adjusted to show the range for the camera, like picture 2.

b. The linear light is on the retracted frames, the direction of the light can be changed by increasing/decreasing the size of the frames, as picture 3 and picture 4

Picture 4 c. When the focus of the camera changes, the range of the camera will be changed. The size of the retracted frames will also be changed by some devices

that impacted by the camera focus, then the direction of the linear light can be changed correspondin...
