View Full Version : Casio EX-S500 buzzing noise when focusing

Hi there,

I recently got the Casio EX-S500, but from the first power-on, whenever the camera focuses or uses the AF-light to focus, it makes a strange buzzing noise which I've never heard in any other digital camera I've owned. Has anyone else experienced this? Otherwise it seems to work ok, but it sounds like the shutter or something else is loose or getting stuck whilst it is trying to focus. I'm wondering if it s onlt a matter of time before it breaks....

Thanks for your reply!

I noticed the same thing on my Casio and am curious if it's normal or a problem. You press the shutter half way down to auto focus and it makes a mild grinding noise or buzz sound before auto focusing and being ready for the picture.
