Re: new camera query...

With a new camera I would say not normal. Can you be any more specific as to which part of the camera rattles?

Re: new camera query...

yeah, it's seems to be coming from the front where the sensor is...it still occurs when I put the lense on too...just sounds like something's loose...

Re: new camera query...

Could be the mirror is a bit slack. If it was me I would take the lens off and check the mirror then maybe lock the mirror up and have a look behind. Failing that take it back for a replacement.

Re: new camera query...

It's the orientation sensor which consists of a small ball-bearing in a tube. It allows the image to be rotated automatically on the display when in portrait mode. Nothing at all to worry about.
