A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11906878B2) discloses a method for controlling a fill light device that includes a flash light and a light guide. The method involves performing face detection on a preview image captured by a camera module, identifying the position of the pupil upon detecting a face, determining a light-shielding area of the light guide based on the pupil position, and calculating a light-emitting angle of the fill light device according to the distance between the target and the device. By adjusting the shape and light-transmitting area of the light guide, the light-exiting area and light-emitting angle of the fill light device can be modified to enhance the quality of the captured image.

Furthermore, the patent includes details on controlling the flash light to pre-flash at a preset power or continue lighting during the preview image acquisition process. The method also involves changing the orientation of the liquid crystal layer within the light guide to make it opaque in specific areas, based on the determined light-shielding area. Additionally, the patent describes the use of a diastimeter to detect the distance between the capturing target and the fill light device, enabling the determination of the optimal light-emitting angle. The fill light device can be further customized with multiple flash lights arranged in parallel or a matrix, providing flexibility in the lighting setup for photography or video recording applications.
