Just got K-x Please Help

Hi folks, got a hold of the camera. Was wondering, when I shake the camera slightly up and down I feel like something is moving inside. Like it's not bolted down right or something. Do you guys have that issue or is that normal?

Thanks

Welcome to the Pentax Forums!

I believe that its normal. The sensor is floated on actuators. This is how Pentax implements the in-body SR or Shake Reduction. The same questions comes up from time to time on all the bodies with SR....

Same thing here with my K10D. It's just the SR system, as that actually makes the sensor move around. Nothing to worry about, even though I admit it feels weird. Enjoy your camera

Thank you for the answers. I thought it was the senor shaking mechanism, glad to know its normal

Thanks!

I suspect it is the mirror - especially during live-view, when mirror locks up it is making a disheartening flapping sound every time I move the camera :-(((( wish they had used stronger mechanism to prevent this.

No, read the previous responses. It is SR, not the mirror, and it is vital to the success of the mechanism that the sensor float freely.
