"D7000 rattle"


US
          

I purchased a D7000 yesterday & when I got it home there was a rattle inside the camera.(lens not attached)
I held the eyelets that hold the strap to make sure that was not the problem.

Nikon tech support said there should be no noise at all.

Returned the camera today and got a new one. Same problem.

Anyone else have this issue?

Thanks

Never noticed it before. But yes mine does have a slight rattle but you have to give it a firm shimmy to do it.

My D300s does it too, but you have to have your ear right next to it. It is probably the mirror but I am only guessing.

I think your OK.

Shoot, shoot and shoot some more!

It's the orientation sensor that makes that noise.

Jason is absolutely correct.

Every Nikon DSLR has an orientation sensor that tells the camera if you are holding it in horizontally or vertically. This is how the camera knows witch image to rotate if you enable “Rotate Tall” (page 200) in the Playback Menu.

The sound can be very faint and many people may not be able to hear it while others can hear it clearly.

This has been a fairly common question in all of the camera forums here over the years.

Bob, as has been mentioned, all Nikon DSLRs have a slight internal sound from the orientation sensor, although I would not describe it as a rattle. What did they say at the store about it? Did you not listen to the replacement camera at the store before bringing it home?

I bought the kit with the 18-200 lens from Costco, so they didn't know anything. Guess thats the trade off buying from Costco, a better price, but not the service of a camera store.

The store was noisey & not really a place to open it. Guess could have opened it in the car, but then I would have returned it. Since the noise seems to be common, it all worked out in the end.

Thanks for your help.

Yeah I guess it would be difficult to hear the sound in a noisy store. Glad to hear it worked out.

I feel something on the grip side, which I think is the battery moving slightly in the compartment, but no rattles.

Orientation Sensor.

Makes complete sense. Thanks Jason and all!

My D80 and D90 do it too. But it is not a troubling or loud noise. You need to really listen to hear it.
