K-x making sound in longer exposure. Is it normal???


I found that during longer exposures (like 1sec), the k-x is making that noise after the picture is taken, like a CD/DVD drive in a PC. Is it normal???

Yes, it's the SR system. It's holding the sensor in place (whether turned on or off) during the exposure, as well as during the "dark frame" that is taken after the actual picture as partof the slow shutter speed noise reduction process.
