  • Publication number: 20220272236
    Abstract: An image sensor converts an optical image formed by an imaging optical system to video signals. A heat dissipation section discharges heat generated in an image sensor to the outside. The imaging optical system, the image sensor, the heat dissipation section, and a battery chamber are arranged on an extension line of an axis of the system in the mentioned order. The battery chamber has an upper surface tilted forward in a direction in which the image sensor is disposed with respect to the axis by a predetermined angle. A projected shadow of a portion, close to the heat dissipation section, of an upper end portion of the battery chamber, which is projected from an upper surface side of the image capturing apparatus, overlaps the heat dissipation section.

  • Patent number: 11415866
    Abstract: An image capturing apparatus having a forced air cooling function and capable of having an accessory attached thereto includes an image capturing apparatus body. A lens mount is provided on the apparatus body and can have a shooting lens removably attached thereto. An attachment portion is provided on the apparatus body and can have the accessory removably attached thereto. A built-in microphone is arranged on a side of a surface of the apparatus body, different from any of a surface where an air outlet port for discharging air used for forced cooling is arranged, a surface where the lens mount is arranged, and a surface where the attachment portion is arranged. The built-in microphone is arranged at a location closer to a top surface of the image capturing apparatus body than a bottom surface thereof.

  • Publication number: 20210232024
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus includes a forced air cooling mechanism that uses driving of a fan. The imaging apparatus further includes a lens mount, an air intake port, and an air exhaust port. The lens mount is provided on a front surface of an apparatus main body. A lens device is detachably attachable to the lens mount. The air intake port is formed in a first protruding portion on a first side surface of the apparatus main body. The air exhaust port is formed in a second protruding portion on a second side surface of the apparatus main body. The second side surface is different from the first side surface.

  • Publication number: 20210055631
    Abstract: An image capturing apparatus that is improved in performance for cooling an apparatus body and a recording medium. The image capturing apparatus includes an image sensor, a circuit board disposed substantially parallel to the image sensor, and a cooling unit configured to cool at least one of the image sensor and the circuit board. The cooling unit includes a duct having an air flow passage crossing an optical axis of the image sensor, and a fan that causes air to flow in the air flow passage in the duct. An air inlet port and an air outlet port of the duct are disposed adjacent to each other such that the air outlet port does not face toward the air inlet port.

  • Patent number: 10866491
    Abstract: An electronic apparatus that is capable of cooling heat sources efficiently by taking in outside air through intake ports effectively while reducing the number of components. The electronic apparatus obtains an image signal corresponding to an optical image formed through an image pickup lens. A first heat generating element is implemented in a first substrate. A second heat generating element is implemented in a second substrate. A first duct is connected to the first heat generating element at a position nearer to an exhaust port formed in a housing of the electronic apparatus than a first blower that sends air to the first duct. A second duct is connected to the second heat generating element at a position nearer to the exhaust port than a second blower that sends air to the second duct.
