Patent Details

The image-capturing apparatus includes a light-emitting unit movable between a retracted position and a light-emitting position at which a light emitter faces a direction different from an image-capturing direction toward an object, and a moving mechanism to rotate the light-emitting unit about a rotation center axis not parallel to the image-capturing direction to move the light-emitting unit between the retracted and light-emitting positions. The moving mechanism is configured such that, at the retracted position, the light emitter is located on an object side further than the rotation center axis located at a first position, and such that, at the light-emitting position, the rotation center axis is located at a second position located on the object side further than the first position. The moving mechanism includes a stopper portion provided to stop the rotation center axis at the second position.

An image-capturing apparatus comprising:
a main body;
a light-emitting unit including a light emitter and being movable relative to the main body between a retracted position and a light-emitting position at which the light emitter faces a direction different from an image-capturing direction toward an object; and
a moving mechanism configured to rotate the light-emitting unit about a rotation center axis not parallel to the image-capturing direction to move the light-emitting unit between the retracted position and the light-emitting position.
