Abstract

We present a new interaction technique enabling user to manipulate digital camera when taking self-portrait pictures. User can control camera's functions such as pan, tilt, and shutter using hand gesture. The preview of camera and GUIs are shown on a large display. We developed two interaction techniques. First one is a hover button that triggers camera's shutter. Second one is cross motion interface that controls pan and tilt. In this paper, we explain algorithms in detailed manner and show the preliminary experiment for evaluating speed and accuracy of our implementation. Finally, we discuss promising applications using proposed technique.
