comparing my fz30 and my fz5, i hear much more noises.

When it turn on, and i little move, i hear as a tic - tac..... and when i use the OIS, a continuos buzz too... but if i put the camera on the table, no noise.

Is it normal OIS do such noises? FZ5 make a small clic clac only if i move a lot.

It will make noise from the focus and OIS. The manual cautions about noise while doing some opetations that are loud enough to be recorded by the audio feature.

If the OIS works like my Sony, cell phones, especially Nextel with DirectConnect, will cause the OIS to go crazy if you are talking on one near it. On my VX2100, my cell will make the camera vibrate!
