Abstract

See full text

An information processing apparatus capable of discriminating between an operation of turning an operation member and an operation of moving a finger alone and switching between detections of the two operations according to the situation to thereby provide a simple and intuitive user interface. A first detection unit detects a finger movement on a sub electronic dial. A second detection unit detects a turn of the sub electronic dial. When the finger movement has been detected, but the turn of the sub electronic dial has not, a first detection function is executed. When the turn of the sub electronic dial has been detected, a second detection function different from the first detection function is executed without executing the first detection function, irrespective of whether or not the finger movement has been detected.
