    Hello !

    When I shake my new Minolta Z10 from back to front and front to back, I ear
    a little noise inside, just like a piece of plastic travelling inside (it
    seems to be near the viewfinder, but it's dificult to locate...)
    I borrough about that...
    Is it normal ?
    If somebody has the same camera, can he tell me ?

    Without this noise, I think the Z10 is a very good digital camera for a low
    price !

    Thanks for your answer.

    Assuming the noise is harmless and the camera lasts a few years, perhaps it is.

    I went to the shop and I compare with other Z10 : same strange noise !
    It is normal.

    If the camera has an automatic sensor to detect portrait/landscape
    orientation, then perhaps it's just the sensor "ball" moving.

    I have a Canon A75 and it sounds like a tiny ball is rattling around if
    you shake it. I also have a Canon Elan IIe (35mm), and it too makes this
    sound. This is normal for such cameras. I plan on getting a 20D soon to
    replace the Elan IIe, and I won't be surprised if I hear the same thing.

    Minolta Z10 : no orientation sensor.
