Whats up all... was wondering if someone could help me out... I just bought a brand new Nikon D50...literally not even 10 minutes out of the box...and I can hear a tiny little sound like something is loose. Now, I tried putting the battery in and shaking and the sound remains... So I called the site (I checked and it is a reputable site) and the CSR told me it's most likely the flash and that his Canon does it as well...does anyone know anything about this?
Thanks for any information.

afaik it's the orientation sensor--so it knows what orientation to write to the exif info mine does it too. i wouldn't worry.

Dang, I didn't even notice. Now that I do........."Hey Nikon, my D50 is busted!" :mad:

(It's probably normal)

As homerjward said, it's just the orientation sensor. No worries. ;)
