1. A camera comprising:an image sensor having an array of pixels arranged vertically and horizontally in a grid pattern;
a processor to form a plurality of image signals by using the pixels of the image sensor in a static image mode and a moving video mode, the processor configured to:
form the image signals by using a first set of the pixels of the image sensor corresponding to a predetermined first view angle during recording in the static image mode, and
form the image signals by using a second set of the pixels of the image sensor corresponding to a predetermined second view angle during recording in the moving video mode, wherein the predetermined second view angle is different from the predetermined first view angle;
an image-instability detector configured to detect an amount of image-instability of the camera and configured to change a position of the second set of the pixels according to the amount of image-instability detected by the image-instability detector, in order to correct the image-instability; and
a display configured to:
display a still image corresponding to the image signals formed based on the first set of the pixels, and
display a moving image corresponding to the image signals formed based on the second set of the pixels.
