Patent Number: 7,821,547

Title: Image sensing apparatus that use sensors capable of carrying out XY addressing type scanning and driving control method

Abstract: An image sensing apparatus has a first setting unit that sets a charge accumulation period in an image sensor to an integral multiple of 1/2 a flicker period, a second setting unit that, when a horizontal scan period, which is a period after commencement of reading out a preset line of the image sensor until commencement of reading out a line to be read out next, is changed to be shorter, sets a charge accumulation period of the image sensor immediately after a change in the horizontal scan period to a period that is an integral multiple of 1/2 the flicker period and is shorter than the charge accumulation period that has been set by the first setting unit, and a timing controller that controls the image sensor to achieve the charge accumulation periods set by the first and second setting units.
