"Something Loose?"


Bellingham, US
          

Hello,
While I was handling my D7100 today it sounded as if something was loose inside. If I turned the camera side to side or up and down it would make a sound somewhat like the shutter clicking. I had a VR lens on at the time. After doing this for a minute it stopped. Any ideas what this was.
Thanks in advance,
Bill

Bill you might have had your finger close to the depth of field preview button so when you rotated the camera you accidently pressed it when rotating the camera. Hope this helps you out

It's most likely the VR elements in the lens causing the noise. It's nothing to worry about

Thanks Steve and Gfinlayson,
You have set my mind at ease. I have been using the camera without the noise reappearing.
Thanks again,
Bill

Yes, it's most likely the VR (or OS or whatever in after market lenses) elements. I just picked up my D7000 with a sigma 17-70 on it, and it make some "loose parts" sounds when I moved it around. Once I turned the camera on, they stopped.

Thanks Sduck,
The camera is working fine now. I think I was pressing the DOF preview button accidentally while I was handling the camera. But it could have been the VR mechanism.
Thanks,
Bill
