I just bought one and noticed a rattle when I pick it up. Seems to come from inside. Is this normal? Could it be the OIS? Seems to works great.

The rattle is perfectly normal when the camcorder is turned off. It has a tiny gyro in the stabilization mechanism that sort of flops around when not powered up. (most camcorders with a good stabilization system make the same noise) The rattle goes away when the camcorder is powered up. If the rattle is still there when the camcorder is turned on you have a problem.

Yes, the rattle is normal, that is the stabilization you hear. Nothing to worry about.

I would like to add to the 'it's normal' comments. It's normal.

I have not had this happen to me. If you are unsure or un easy about the rattle, either return it for another one or contact Canon to find a repair center.

No rattle here. I would return it before it gets worse. And a refund will be harder to get the longer you wait!

Hi - I do not think this is "normal" - mine didn't rattle - that sounds to me like the camera has something broken inside. I would return and get a replacement. It may work great now....but what about the future? However, I am no expert. Best of luck

Hello, my camcorder doesn't make any rattling sound. I, too, would exchange it.
