Sounds when using live view -- normal?

I found a few old threads about this, but I don't think I have the answer yet. This is probably normal, but I want to be sure.

When using Live View with the K-50, is it normal to hear things moving around inside the camera when I'm not pressing buttons or doing anything other than moving the camera (tilting slowly, when getting a subject into view)? I know there are a variety of parts that are supposed to move, but it's more sound than I expected for a camera. It's sort of a quiet clunking sound, not a digital sound or something I'd consider a motor.

Thanks

Yes. What you hear is the SR system keeping the sensor locked in place.

Thanks, both.

Just to be sure that's all I heard, I turned off the SR. That's one item crossed off my list!
