I just bought this camera brand new recently, im new to dslr so i dont know theres a prob with the camera.

When taking a shots i get a real nasty loud high pitched noise. Its noticed more while the shutter is open, eg for slow shutter speed shots like for 10 secs, i would get this noise until the shutter closes. Is this normal?

Cant really notice it in shutter speeds faster than 1/2 sec, i guess the sound is only heard when the shutter is open.

I've got the KM 7D and it sounds like you've got the anti-shake on. If you're taking shots with exposures slower than 1/4, you should be turning AS off and using a tripod.

The AS does make some noise, which is only really noticeable on slower exposures.

yeah i agree with it being noticeable only slower than 1/4 sec or so, but how loud is it exactly? seems to be way too loud, easily very noticeable.....
I *** probably hear it well even at about 10 - 20m away in a quite room.


If i turn off the Anti shake, does the sound go away even at long exposures?

The simple answer is obviously to just try it with AS turned off :)

The 5D has a plastic body, so maybe that makes it sound louder, but in my 7D it's not that loud.

If you want a good lens recommendation have a look at the Sigma 70-300mm APO Macro DG, I've just got one and it's very sharp :D
