Hi,

I have the UK version of this camera, the FZ-82. I have had this camera for over a year (new from Panasonic direct) and I also get the "buzzing/vibration" when tapping the camera where you have highlighted the red arrows. Camera works perfectly.

Not sure what causes this slight "buzz/vibration" but for myself, I have not had any issues at all.

Betting this sound is from the camera's IS (image stabilization system) and working as intended,

Hi Mark,

1) OIS clicking can only be heard if camera is off. One needs to shake the camera side to side to hear the element slide back and forth. It will not make the faint clicks if powered on when the magnets are engaging it.

2) This buzzing sound is not affected by powering on or off. It's a more superficial vibration further back proximate to the grip area, because holding the grip will dampen the sound somewhat.
