Default Olympus SP-590 uz TICKING SOUND!?!?

hey has i was wondering if anyone who has this camera has noticed a ticking sound with in their camera .... try to hear it in a very silent room.. i've had 3 versions of this camera because of various reasons but i never had a ticking sound problem...

when the camera is ready to shoot... its always ticking however when u go to the menu it stops... it might be a motor.. or not. but i swear i never heard it b4 on my other 2 cameras..

if anyone can answer this it would be great help because i dont kno if it is with all camera's or mine is just defective...

The ticking sound is the IS system at work. It is perfectly normal.

Have a great day.
