E-30 sensor cleaning noise/vibration

Hi,

I've owned my E-30 for a while now, I just recently got it back from repair (the problem was with the card door sensor).

Ever since I've owned the camera (from second hand) when turning it on the sensor cleaning light will flash and the camera will lightly vibrate and make a DrrRrrRrrR noise. I always assumed this was a normal part of the sensor cleaning, but it has now stopped doing this since the repair (the blue light still flashes but no noise/vibration).

Which is correct, should it make the noise or not?

It is correct that there is no noise for the start up cleaning, however, when the IS is on it will vibrate when switching the camera off.

Re: E-30 sensor cleaning noise/vibration

Ahh, I never associated the vibration with the image stabilisation before. I had got muddled up as well, it was always when turning off the camera not when turning it on. Thanks for the explanation.
