An electronic apparatus that prevents a cable included in a coupler accommodated in an accommodating part from being caught between a battery lid and an apparatus body, with a simple construction.The electronic apparatus includes an accommodating part for accommodating a coupler, a battery lid which opens and closes an opening of the accommodating part, and a lock member including a pawl portion which restricts the coupler from being discharged from the accommodating part when the coupler has been accommodated therein.In a second aspect of the present invention, there is provided an electronic apparatus including a coupler member including a cable, and a main unit in which the coupler is accommodated, wherein the main unit comprises an accommodating part configured to accommodate the coupler member, a lid member configured to open and close an opening of the accommodating part, a lock member configured to restrict the coupler member from being discharged from the accommodating part in a state where the coupler member has been accommodated in the accommodating part, the lock member including a pawl portion which covers at least part of the cable, and a cutout formed in a portion defining the opening of the accommodating part so as to route out the cable of the coupler member when the coupler member has been accommodated in the accommodating part, wherein the coupler member comprises a body from which the cable is extended, and a slit defining portion which is integrally formed with the body, and defines a slit for routing the cable out of the body, the slit defining portion including protrusions formed on inner walls thereof for latching the cable in the slit, and wherein in the state where the coupler member has been accommodated in the accommodating part and the cable has been arranged in the cutout, a length of the pawl portion which covers the cable is longer than a length of each protrusion protruding from the inner wall.According to the present invention, when the member having the cable is accommodated in the accommodating part provided in the electronic apparatus and then the opening of the accommodating part is closed by the lid member, it is possible to prevent the cable from being caught between the battery lid and the apparatus body, with a simple construction.Note that in the present embodiment, in an opened state of the battery lid 19, it is also possible to insert or remove an external storage medium that stores shot images.As the external storage medium, it is possible to employ e.g. The lateral side of the camera body 100 is provided with a cable lid 20 in the vicinity of the battery lid 19. shows the cable lid 20 and its surrounding portions in detail.

The light emitter 13 flashes when a controller (not shown) determines that the light amount of reflected light is insufficient, according to the shooting environment or when the user selects flashing of the light emitter 13 according to his/her own will, which makes it possible to obtain a high-quality image.2005-64365, a lid member formed of an elastic member is disposed at the outlet for extending the power cable to thereby prevent e.g. Further, this publication proposes a structure that prevents the lid member from being pressed into the opening by an external force applied e.g.when the lid member is pressed by a finger of the user.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.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.
