Moving the K20D

Sometimes when I hold the K20D, and I move it pointing downward, I feel something moving inside the camera and hearing a sound. I remember reading something in the manual that the sound was normal, but I don't remember reading about feeling inside movement. I don't have the manual with me, so could someone inform me?

It's the CCD sensor. Nothing to worry about.

Did you leave it lying around without a body cap or lens on it? Something may have crawled inside and found a new home.

I wouldn't worry about it, it's the CMOS (not CCD on the K20D) sensor that's moving around due to the SR system design. But if you see things crawling around when you look though the viewfinder, then K-9 might be right about something finding a new home
