i got a clunk

ok everytime i turn my k200d on i get this double *clunk* sound. it's only recently started doing it even though it's not affecting any pictures at all. Has anyone else experienced this and have found out what the problem was.... is it terminal, or can it be fixed... the camera's still under warranty so i should be safe there etc. any thoughts?

cheers

sounds like the dust cleaning clunk. Do you have sensor clean enabled?

I wonder if you have sensor cleaning on upon startup activated? I think you may be feeling the sensor shaking...

Great to hear that the problem is solved.

Just in case it helps anyone - on a similar note, I was using my GX-10 last night, and after every shot the camera was making a strange noise.

Then I discovered that I had bracketing multi shot switched on. I was not holding the shutter release down long enough for the second shot to be taken, but the camera sounded as though it was getting ready for the next shutter release.

I wouldn't call it a 'problem', it's a good thing. I think it's one of the camera's default settings.

When I started using K100D I also noticed that a part inside the camera moves around everytime I change sides in portrait orientation. Turned out it's the magnet used for SR Is this the same in K10 and K20?

I did not compare directly, but I think the sound is reduced in the K20D. : )

I dont know about that... the clunk sounds like something coming apart in my K20.

I am also not hearing a big difference in the volume of the shutter that I heard so much about.
The tone of it may be a little lower but the volume seems about the same.

yeah it is... the only thing that went through my mind when i first heard it was <insert bad word here> dollar signs flashing through my eye's. My main worry was that it would have been getting fixed during the A1 GP being held in taupo New Zealand on the 23rd of this month and returning to the event using the sony cybershot again wasn't in my plans.lol.... So i'm very relieved it's back to normal

something moves inside my camera

Hey all,

I just bought a K200D yesterday. I didn't notice when I first bought it, but when I took it home and tilted it side to side something heavy-ish inside the camera was moving left to right by about 1-2mm.
Is this a fault or is this normal? Has anyone else noticed something like this with their camera?

It's due to the Shake Reduction system - the sensor is free to float around inside the camera a little until the SR system takes control. Completely normal.
