Yes that's normal. I have 5 of them at work they all do that. I assume it's because of the semi-manual lens. I was concerned too.

Hi

Probably the optical image stabilizer system that rattles. It needs power to work, then it will stop rattle. Most camcorders with similar systems works the same.

Regards,

Hi Ras,

Almost the same type of noise I hear when I power up my XL2 :)

As Bo mentioned, it's the IS kicking in.
