Uneasy sound of parts shifting inside new K-X

Hi. Just got my new K-X but noticed that when I picked it up the body out of the box, I can hear parts inside shifting when I tilt the camera around. The cam seems to be working fine when I take pictures.

But the sound is still there after attaching the lens. Although I don't hear the shifting in movie mode. Should I be worried? I bought this from a well-known authorized retailer.

That sound should only be the sensor. Here, read a bit of this:

And welcome to the forum.

Be happy, don't worry. This is the sound that tell you the K-x sensor has the OS & dusting systems. All the new dSLR sure make lot of noise, power on or not.

Thanks fellow Pentaxians! My quick search terms within the forum didn't yield good results but Google did!

Worry not, if the clunk is there, (as long as it's not as loud as a lego brick being shaken in a big plastic jar) it means your K-x is healthy XD

Believe me, it freaked me out when I first got my K-x, too. Since I ordered it from the US, and shipping it back would have been expensive, I actually cried over my bad luck to get a defective camera. lol

Okay, TMI.
