    Default Tick Tock

    Hi there,
    currently own a 350D, noticed when i move my cam body up/down,
    there seems to b a tick tock sound inside the inbulit flash area.
    cam has nvr been dropped nor abused..
    the pics turn out fine though.
    just that im getting irritated by it,
    will send it in for a look see soon..
    wonder does it affect the rest of u guys?

    Nothing to worry about; it's part of the pop-up flash mechanism.

    What's so irritating about it? I don't think you stick your ear there are keep shaking it when you take a picture...

    I thought that was the imag orientation sensor(or smth liddat)?
    To tell the camera whether it is vertical or horizontal...
