Patent Number: 7,043,095

Title: Image sensing apparatus with image quality mode setting and digital signal processor

Abstract: An image sensing apparatus in which an AD converter has a quantization bit count that can be modified, thereby reducing the power consumption of a digital signal processing circuit. The processing bit count of the digital signal processing circuit is made identical to the modified AD bit count. This provides improved image quality and reduced power consumption in the entire system.
