S100 - autofocus clicking noise in lens
Sep 4, 2012

Hi all,

My S100 is around 7 months old. I recently noticed that there is an odd, continuous clicking/popping noise coming from the lens when it is autofocusing - that is either in "AUTO" mode or while recording videos. The noise is easily audible when using the camera, regardless of the IS settings, and even more so on recorded material - to my taste videos are unusable because of the broken audio. The camera also seems to have issues autofocusing and occasionally takes blurry pictures in reasonable, easy conditions.

Is there a way to narrow down the issue and is this a reason enough to justify a warranty repair? Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance.
