a65 noise at shut off. Is this normal?
Aug 23, 2012

When I shut off my a65, about 2 or 3 secs later I hear a brief mechanical noise. I suppose that there is not much that is mechanical inside except the tiny "motor" to drive the AF. I placed by ear against the body of the camera. It is a flutter or a shudder. Of course, I don't have to have my ear next to it. I can hear it well at arm's length. Quite pronounced. This can't be normal? Can it?

Just bought it a week ago. Don't think it was doing it the first couple of days.

Is this sound normal? Does anyone else hear a slight sound a couple of secs after shutting off their a65?

It does it every time.


(I also think the LCD screen blinks once in a while. think I may need to take this fun machine in for an exchange?)

Sony SLT-A65
