Noise (like small motor running) while Live View is activated

I've noticed that when LV is active a continuous noise like a small motor running inside the camera will immediately start running, as soon as LV is off the noise will stop, are you experiencing the same issue ?, is this normal ?, is this noise going to be recorded in the movies ?, thanks

It's normal - as rams suggests it's the SR system moving the sensor around, trying to stabilize the shot.

Yep, it's normal - that's SR mechanism working. Try turn SR off - and there won't be any noise, but you will notice the frame shaking - and it's quite apparent.
No idea about video, though, since I don't have a K-7.

The SR mechanism noise won't generally be picked up in movies, unless you are particularly unsteady or move the camera suddenly.
