Canon A70 startup noise???
well i just got a Canon A70 this week and i love the camera but im having a hard time figuring out some strange sounds that don't sound normal. When you hit the power button it sound strange when the lense comes out and when you turn it off it makes another strange sound then the lense retracks. im not sure if this is normal or not. Sorry i cant describe the sound im just curious if its normal and i should stop worrieing or if its a defect.

I guess the sound you mean is normal.
It's something mechanical going on in the cam when you turn it on or off.
IIRC it is the focus which makes that sound.
I was scared, too, when I first heard these sounds with my A60, but everything should be fine.
