Hi guys,

I have just bought a FZ5 a couple of hours ago. Can't stop playing with it since I got home. ;p

I just want to check real fast with bros here if mine set is faulty or something... here goes:

when I off the camera, I can hear some noise when I give the cam a light shake. Is that normal?

But the loose noise is not there when I on the cam with the lens extended. Is there something wrong with my set? Should I go back for a 1-to-1 exchange tonight?

Thanks!!! :)

If everything works fine and the shots come out ok, you don't have to worry too much.
Just don't keep shaking it, or else it will really become spoilt ah... :bsmilie:

Mine too. It may be the OIS, which is a moving mechanism - gyro.

For goodness sake, why do you need to shake the DC when it's switching off...?

It is stated in the Manual pg.111
Noise caused by internal mechanical movement
when it is shaken. Not a malfunction.

Cheers !

I agree too. Read on Page 3 of manual:

Care for camera
*Do not shake or cause impact to camera.....

Be careful lah.

i think should organise a shaking contest :bsmilie: there is no diamond inside too :bsmilie: ...

guys stop shaking your Fz5.... :nono: it is normal for the sound

'anti-shake' doesn't mean for you to shake shake okie haha....

Guess OIS is a gyro, a mech device like a spin top, hence it should still move when power is off.

Funny, somehow all of us din try to call pana to chk out!

hmm, does anyone know whether there would be a better deal for the fz5 at sitex which is being held next week? :)

otherwise I'd have to get the usual S$630 w/o GST at AP or MS colour.

Hmm there's never a deal for cameras at computer fairs. at least, not so far for the last 2 years that I know of.. It's just that they're reduced to normal street price.. Though I heard the last fair one of the panasonic camera prices dropped below market rate by $100 for a few hours..

Sighz I see this thread I always feel like drinking.. it's like.. you know..
I always imagine seeing the title as: Martini... stirred not shaken..

called them and check already even their technician deny any sound when the camera is switched off.
but if you listen carefully there is a slight sound when you shake because the inner lens diameter is somewhat a bit smaller than the outer cover lens so as the allow the lens to zoom without much friction and with more ease.
