Title: Digital camera and method for identification of objects

Abstract: The invention concerns a method for identification of stationary or moving objects such as images, texts or physical items on the basis of a digital representation (308), to be learned, of the object or of a part of the object. Within the representation (308) to be learned or within a detail (310), a search window (312) is initially selected here which occurs only once within the representation (308) to be learned or within the detail (310). At least one search detail (314, 316, 318) within the search window (312) is then selected, and forms the basis for the object identification. The invention further relates to a digital camera, in particular for image processing in an industrial environment.
