On the front surface of a camera body 100 as the main unit of the digital camera, there are arranged an image pickup unit 10 including a collapsible lens barrel and a light emitter 13, and on the upper surface of the camera body 100, there are arranged a power button 11 and a release button 12.When a user presses the power button 11 in a state in which the power can be supplied to the camera body 100, the lens barrel forming the image pickup unit is extended, which makes it possible to perform shooting.
In a first aspect of the present invention, there is provided an electronic apparatus comprising a main unit including an accommodating part for accommodating a coupler member including a cable, a lid member configured to open and close an opening of the accommodating part, and a lock member including a pawl portion which restricts the coupler member from being discharged from the accommodating part in a state where the coupler member has been accommodated in the accommodating part, wherein in the main unit, a portion defining the opening of the accommodating part has a cutout formed therein for routing out the cable of the coupler member when the coupler member has been accommodated in the accommodating part, and wherein in a state where the cable has been arranged in the cutout and the coupler member has been accommodated in the accommodating part, the pawl portion covers at least part of the cable.
Further, there has been known one configured to accommodate a coupler in the battery accommodating part in place of a battery, and supply electric power to the apparatus main unit by connecting the coupler to an external power source to thereby operate the apparatus main unit.
There has been proposed a structure related to the electronic apparatus including the above-mentioned battery accommodating part, in which when a coupler including a power cable is mounted in the battery accommodating part, the cable is extended out of the apparatus main unit through an extending outlet for routing the cable out of the electronic apparatus (see Japanese Patent Laid-Open Publication No. In the technique described in Japanese Patent Laid-Open Publication No.
The battery lid 19 protects a battery or a coupler (coupler member), described hereinafter, accommodated in the battery accommodating part, denoted by reference numeral 21 in , from the outside.
When the battery lid 19 is opened, the battery accommodating part 21 for accommodating the battery is exposed to the outside.
