1. An electronic apparatus comprising a memory and at least one processor and/or at least one circuit to perform the operations of the following units:
an image acquisition unit configured to obtain a wide field view image having a wide field of view angle, captured by one or more image sensors; and
a control unit configured to,
perform control, in the case that the wide field view image is obtained using a first operation mode, to clip a first range narrower than an entire range of the wide field view image about a vertical axis to a position of the electronic device at the time of capturing, out of the wide field view image, and
perform control, in the case that the wide field view image is captured using a second operation mode:
to clip a second range narrower than the entire range of the wide field view image about a horizontal axis to the position of the electronic device at the time of capturing and different from the first range, out of the wide field view image,
wherein the first operation mode and the second operation mode are different imaging modes from each other.
