Grinding sound when using zoom - C-1000L

Discussion in 'Olympus' started by Ian Rance, Jun 5, 2009.

  1. A quick question to other C-1000L users here. When using the power zoom, I get a 'rough' sound, however when just turning the camera off (when the zoom is extended) the zoom works quietly. Is the rough sound some form of stepper motor or is the sound normal or wrong for this camera?
    I want to be out using it more, but before I use it for any important shoots I want to clear this issue up.
    Thank you in advance for your help, Ian, UK
