Just bought the s120 as replacement of my broken s100. I love the responsiveness, the screen, the touchscreen (as a lefty it works great!) and the touch focus.

When I shake it, it makes a sound as if something is lose, is that normal?

There was a similar topic a while ago, here`s my post from there:

Hi fkjensen,

While I can`t really tell you if this is totally normal, I can just confirm that my S120 does the same - though I`ve shot some 1000+ pictures with it so far, and I wouldn`t have noticed it if you didn`t bring it up

That said, I tried my IXUS 220HS, and it behaves the same, just that the shaking rattle noise (when camera is off) is much quieter.

[edit] Ok, I found some more topics about it, and it seems to be perfectly fine and that you have nothing to worry about, check these:
> Rattling sound inside Olympus Pen EP-5
> Does your camera have a small rattling noise when you shake it?
> SX50HS rattle noise when moving camera (only turned off)
> Canon S120 Rattle Noise?
> K5 Camera Rattle

In the end, I may quote one of the posts in there (just for laughs ;)):

Lesson... spend more time with camera on and shooting, less time off and shaking it.
