  • Patent number: 8830390
    Abstract: Provided is a digital camera including an electronic dial and a mode dial on an upper portion of a camera main unit, where upper surfaces of these dials approximately flush with an upper surface of the main unit, and are arranged in parallel with the optical axis of the main unit. The length from the upper end to the lower end of the mode dial is approximately the same as the length from the upper end of the electronic dial to a lower end of an encoder arranged below the electronic dial. This configuration forms a space in a box shape below these dials, and the space below the electronic dial can be efficiently used by setting the space as the storage portion for a recording medium to be inserted from the outside, resulting in downsizing the camera without sacrificing the operability.
