Frying eggs sound in bulb

Whenever I use bulb setting on the K-x or K-5, when I put my ear close to the camera there is this crackling sound like frying eggs. What is that?

Do you have shake reduction turned on?
Otherwise, I'd keep a fire extinguisher handy. :-)

I don't think shake reduction works in bulb?

SR isn't active in bulb mode, but the SR mechanism is still active. Even with SR off, the little electromagnets have to activate to keep the sensor locked in place. That's what you're hearing. It should be the same sound you hear in live view.

Your camera's not cooked yet.
