PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a solid-state imaging apparatus that is reduced in the fluctuation of the sensitivity, by reducing the level difference in the boundary region between an effective pixel region and a peripheral region, and to provide a method of producing the same apparatus and also provide a cameral provided, using such a solid-state imaging apparatus and electronic equipment which includes the built-in camera.SOLUTION: The solid-state imaging apparatus is provided with an effective pixel region 11, where a plurality of lines of pixel 2 including a photoelectric converting element are arranged and a peripheral region 13 of the effective pixel region 11. Moreover, this solid-state imaging apparatus includes an aperture 21, formed to an insulating layer 19 directly above the photoelectric conversion element in the effective pixel region 11, a dummy aperture 24 formed to an upper insulating layer 19 of the peripheral region 13, and a buried layer 22 which is embedded in the aperture 21 and the dummy aperture 24.
