An image capture apparatus includes an image sensor which includes, a plurality of image forming pixels, and a plurality of focus detecting pixels that receive light beams having passed through the exit pupils of the imaging lenses while they are partially shielded, a vertical output line which outputs, in the vertical direction of the image sensor, signals of a plurality of pixels aligned on one column, a vertical addition unit which adds, in the vertical direction of the image sensor, signals of a plurality of pixels aligned on one column, and a control unit which controls so that the vertical addition unit is always OFF when the focus detecting pixel is included in pixels having signals to be added, in adding the signals of the plurality of pixels in the vertical direction and reading them out by the vertical addition unit.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
