Something loose when shake EOS M?
« on: August 16, 2014, 10:58:40 PM »
I just got a new EOS M, I noticed when i shake the body there is something loose that rattles a little. Is this normal on other EOS M's or is there something loose inside there that shouldn't be. The camera seems to work fine otherwise. Thanks for the help

I think that's normal given the mechanical parts inside.  My M and 6Ds both produce a little noise when shaken and work just fine.

I have two M's and nothing rattles what so ever when shaken...Solid as a rock!
Guess you do have something to worry about!  :'(

If the camera is operating as it should I wouldn't worry about it. If there's one thing I've learned since my 1D X purchase it's that none of this stuff is made completely bullet proof.

I´m not sure, but if there is some altitude sensor for automatic image rotation, it should of rattle a bit....
Mine does.
