Paper Abstract

A microprocessor is employed to determine the best exposure value based on scene statistics. Brightness data are obtained from a `look-ahead' linear CCD sensor, and scene statistics are computed and processed using an exposure control algorithm such that the exposure is set for the cultural information in the scene.
