just bought a dvx, quick question

Sorry for such a chimpish question, but I just bought my DVX and when holding it and tilting it forward and back, I hear a small rocking sound.

It's like something is gently opening and closing.

Can you please let me know if this is natural and what is actually happening?

Thanks,

peter

This is normal (believe it or not). I'm told that the clunking is caused by some component of the optical image stabilizer.
