Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera
I have just noticed my W1 making a clicking noise. It seems to see when the camera is in the Green automatic mode. The noise seems to be the apeture switching between the two settings it has. Why is it making noise when switching between the two appetures? James

The W1 uses metal rings that slide in place with a tiny hole in the middle to give the required apperture it does not have a diaphram that closes and opens to give the apperture... so what you here is the sound of changing the suitable ring ( or disc) with the apperture ... You can look in the camera (lens side) and change appertures, you should be able to see this happen ... don't click with flash though :) The sound is very low though if you here a loud click there's something wrong.
