p.1 #1 · 7D rattling noise?


Got a 7D awhile back, and I recently noticed that if I shake the camera, there is a rattling noise that comes from the viewfinder area. Canon said it might be the flash hinge rattling, and it's normal. It's not super-loud, but loud enough for a tech to hear over the phone.

Any of you with a 7D care to give it a shake-about, and report your results? I just want to make sure my camera doesn't have a problem, because it just went to Irvine for a cleaning, and I'd never noticed the rattle before.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I just checked mine and it does make a very slight rattling noise when shaken. By very slight, I mean I have to hold the camera up to my ear while shaking it to hear the rattle. I doubt that the rattle mine makes when shaken is loud enough to be heard over the phone.

I never noticed this sound before, however the camera is functioning fine.

Does the 7d have the same orientation sensor as the 40d? There was a little, rattly ball that went to different contacts for portrait or landscape. That was usually the culprit for this question regatding that camera.

Steely little ball rolling in a wee tunnel sound occurs if you slow flip the camera from horizontal to vertical. Popup flash linkage rattles if you violently shake camera. I bet you'd make similar noises if the same were done to you...

Shake the hell outta your lenses and you'll enjoy even more surprises!

Definitely sounds like an orientation sensor. Most cameras will do this.

And at high ISOs on the 5D Mark II it sounds like tubas, trumpets, trombones, and such.

You know...high ISO band noise.

My first thought was the AF system, rattling around inside...
