To add on to crash's post, it can be one of two things. Either the mentioned flash mounting or a little device within the camera that detects whether the camera is being held in portrait or landscape mode also makes this noise.

Completely normal.

I think it is the metal bracket that holds up the pop up flash. When I pop open the flash and hold the metal bracket, it does not rattle anymore..
