Digital Camera with Printer

Digital camera and printer are directly connected, and a print instruction is issued on a display normally equipped on the digital camera (to be referred to as photo direct print system hereinafter) has been proposed. Merits of use of the photo direct print system are easy print without starting a pc and low system building cost since a pc is not indispensable.

Upon connecting a digital camera to a printer, a display normally equipped on the digital camera is used as means for giving various instructions and, especially, for confirming an image to be printed. Hence, a printer does not require any special display used to confirm an image, and the cost can be further reduced. However, in the conventional photo direct system, neither a technique for notifying a digital camera whether or not a printer which can directly communicate with the digital camera has a function of automatically detecting a paper size and the like, nor a technique for displaying, on the user interface of the digital camera, whether or not the printer has such function have been proposed.

Also, no technique for facilitating selection of a paper size or the like using that function has been proposed. The present invention has been made in consideration of the aforementioned problems, and is conceived with allowing the display, on a user interface of a digital camera, whether or not a printer which can directly communicate with the digital camera has a function of automatically detecting a paper size or the like. In one aspect the present application provides a digital camera which can directly communicate with a printer, comprising reception means for receiving information associated with a function of the printer from the printer, and a user interface for, when the printer has a function of automatically detecting a paper size, notifying a user that the printer has that function. The invention according to the present application provides a digital camera which can directly communicate with a printer, comprising reception means for receiving information associated with a function of the printer from the printer, and a user interface for, when the printer has a function of automatically detecting a paper type, notifying a user that the printer has that function.

The standalone printer is around the size of a pda and prints via pictbridge or from any bluetooth-enabled camera phone. The integrated digital camera and printer is slightly larger and includes a two-inch lcd, plus a built-in seven-megapixel camera with a 3x optical zoom, flash, multiple scene modes, and sd card expansion. Digital camera and printer are connected, image data stored in the digital camera can be printed directly from the printer. With the pictbridge standard, a transmission request for the image data to be printed is sent from the printer to the digital camera, and the digital camera then sends the image data to the printer in reply to the transmission request. When a thumbnail image is printed according to the pictbridge standard, transmission of the thumbnail image data is requested.

Digital camera and printer are connected via a wireless link, the digital camera cannot inform the user that he or she can bring the digital camera outside the communication area with the printer. As a result, the user cannot quickly start photographing, and may lose a shutter chance. Such problem is also posed in a system in which a digital camera is directly connected to an image recording apparatus that records a digital image directly transmitted from the digital camera on a randomly accessible recording medium via a cable or a wireless link.
