Idling noises in the camera? Normal?

I was doing a nature walk with the k-01 in hand, and the camera was making some mechanical noises inside here and there. Why would this be? Something to do with my walking? Or adjusting settings on the fly?

Thanks in advance

It's the floating sensor because of the Shake Reduction system. It is constantly holding the sensor in place with magnetic force, so your walking motion causes the sensor to clunk around (which is normal).

Ok cool, good to know. Don't like hearing noises in my devices if I don't know what they are is all

i think it might also be the aperture blades constantly being adjusted. The blades will open and close depending on how much available light changes.
