Time interval shorter when light is bright
The patent summarizes the technology like this: "An embodiment of the invention is an electronic camera with electronic rolling shutter (ERS), having an exposure controller that can automatically set an integration time interval and a flash pulse-on time interval for a given exposure in accordance with at least two different scenarios, namely one for a 'dark' scene and one for a 'bright' scene."
The set integration time interval is shorter when the indication is bright than when the indication is dark; and the set flash pulse-on time interval is longer when the indication is bright than when the indication is dark.
