    Good morning,
    My PL3 seems very noisy when making an exposure. It is difficult to describe, sort of hmmmm clunk. Is this normal?

    Thank you

    For long exposures 1/5 of a second or more, you can hear the sensor stabilization engage and disengage. Note that if you are doing long exposures on a tripod, you need to turn off stabilization.
