Re: Cheap MEMS gyros?

Fair enough, but why does it stop when the movie mode starts?

I'll bet that part of the IS system is MEMS gyroscopes ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vibrating_structure_gyroscope ) and that's where the sound is coming from.

Thank you for the link. I believe, you might be right. And then, it is easy to see where the noise comes from: those MEMS cost about $5.- according to wikipedia, Olympus might have got one for $4,69.

Good enough for the $1k body but in line with the fogging EVF in the weather-sealed body. Peter
