Canon SX50 - constant 'whirring' noise?
Oct 7, 2012

Hi Guys,

I just noticed, when in very quiet surroundings, that my Canon SX50 seems to be making a constant whirring sound (a bit like a faint laptop cooling fan, or electric motor).

It only does it when in photo/movie-taking mode - when switched to playback mode, all is quiet.

Can other SX50 owners confirm that there's is/isn't making the same noise?

Cheers,

Mike.

Did you check your focusing mode? Is it on 'focus at picture talking' or 'continuous focus'?

Likely what you are hearing is the Image Stabilization module on the lens.

It's the continuous focus.

The SX40 does the same thing.
