Panasonic HVX 200a weird sound

I just received my Panasonic HVX 200a today and I find this weird sound when I move the camcorder around off mode, such as tilting up and down, paning left and right without a tripod attached. It sounds like something is loose inside the camcorder, however, when I switch the camcorder to on mode, the weird sound disappear. I wonder if anybody had this problem before.

Thank you

Oh yeah that's the sound of the little man inside who actually makes the 24p. I suggest you google for this one- it's only about the most asked question about Panasonic cameras there is. So you won't feel alone in this question.

Thank you for your response.
I tried to google about that little guy, but I couldn't find anything that explains about it. I also called the company where I purchase the camcorder, unfortunately they are closed for the next 3 days.

Is it normal it makes that sound.

Thank you again

That clicking noise means the OIS(optical image stabilizer gyro) is ok. And guess what, you are the one millionth new Panasonic owner to notice. :)

It is normal. There is nothing wrong with the camera.

Chon Loi:

You are lucky that you didn't ask this question over at DVX User. Their hazing ritual is much more vicious over there ;-) Noah and Michael were nice.
