E-5 Slight Noise

Hiya All,

Has anybody noticed he following :

1. A very slight noise ( very slight clink ) from within their E5 when turning it to one side. It is barely audible but there. Wondered if it might be anything to do with the sensor and / or I.S.

2. A clatter noise when turning the camera off.

Thank you for your time.

Re: E-5 Slight Noise

Hi Adam,

The faint click you can hear is probably the onboard flash mechanism, mine does that too. Pop the flash up and hold the two support arms lightly and the sound almost disappears.

The second sound is the IS on power down. If you turn it off in the super control panel you will not hear the clatter on power down.
Regards Huw
