Default Canon S120 making funny sounds when moving it around (in automatic mode)

Hi everyone,

I have a little question for those owning the Canon S120.

I just bought it and I noticed that my camera is making funny sounds when I move it around. Those sounds seem to occur more often when I'm in the automatic mode. If I don't move the camera, it doesn't make any sound, but as soon as I move it, it does a little "toc-toc" sound (hard to describe, it's like the camera is adjusting something automatically when it moves). It seems to come from inside the camera and not from outside. I have owned my Canon cameras before and this is the first time I notice that.

Has anyone else noticed that?
If so, is it "normal" or have I received a defective unit?

Thanks for your help!

It might be the image stabilizer at work- or the AF motor- which I think is AF-C by default in auto...

But is it normal?

Do all Canon S120 make this sound?

Why does it have to do that every time I move the camera? Should it do it only when I took the picture?

Thanks!
