Re: The sensor still has to be held centrally!

Have you been on any special planet, or just travelling round?

No, there is no gyro.

Without being held, the sensor would just flop around as it's designed to move in the direction of gravity when the power is off; you may hear it clunk if you rotate your camera when the power is off.

Ding Ding Ding! I think we have a winner! That sounds like it explains what we experience...the clunk as well as the ever-present seashell white noise. I was just surmmizing a very similar explanation on a different thread when I read these replies...good to see I was on the right track...

But actually generates the sound itself? Wouldn't think a magnetic field alone could do there a mechanical gyro being spun-up like in OIS systems in Canon Glass?
