Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T20 Digital Camera
I took 2 pictures, one at a time, I would stop to look at the picture - and I'm holding the camera with my pinkie fingers on both sides and my thumbs hold half and half, the bottom of the camera.
That's when it vibrated. I took another same place picture, held the camera the same way to look at the picture, it starts vibrating.
I later went to another location and took a photo and again it vibrated. 3 times in one night. Fully charged battery. Can this happen and why?

The vibration is not caused by the focusing system but by the optical image stabilization system. Check this out: http://www.fixya.com/support/t408279-vibration_when_using_sony_cyber_shot_dsc

SOURCE: vibrating and shaking
the sstepper motor of the focus assembly has slipped out of its track. that motor is a very powerful one which can cause the vibration.
once u change the mode to take the picture the motor should run in both direction to make some calibration.
you cannot disable it. in the preview mode the optical assembly returns to it closed position and then the motor is switched off.
since it is a cybershot you need to be very careful in handling the camera if you have any plan to open it. it is recommended to be taken to the nearest service centre. any way the wheels might need replacement
