Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera
I got my camera about half a year ago, and since that time everything have worked just perfect. Today I took it to take some shots and I noticed something weird. When the camera is turned on it makes a strange noice, something like scratching inside. It appears only when the live view is on and the lens is extended ready to shoot. When I preview the pictures it doesn't make any sound, only when I'm about to shoot or make movie. It's a very quiet sound (you have to put the camera against your ear in order to hear it) and I'm not sure if it really is something extraordinary, so could you check out your cams if they make that sound? Everything works just like before, pictures are sharp and movies are well recerded too, but I'm concerned if there isn't anything bad happening with my camera. It didn't face any extreme conditions such as snow or water. I'd really appreciate your help! Karol

Sounds like the focus mechanism, your camera will be a very light sound while focusing. this is totally normal and nothing is wrong with your camera the sound is a good thing it makes sure your photos are in focus :)
