It's the orientation sensor. You'll find the same thing with *many* camera models. Some of the Canon manuals even mention it. For example, page 105 of the XT manual says this:

"When you change the camera’s orientation between horizontal and vertical, the camera orientation sensor will make a small sound. This is normal and not a defect."
