When I take a photo with a long exposure - the camera sorta makes some noise - I have had a Canon in the past and it did not do this - is this just normal with Olympus and a longer exposure - i'm talking like 2 plus seconds.

Thanks

Brandon

Is your image stabilization turned on? If so, the noise you are hearing is most likely that. When the IS is turned off you shouldn't hear anything other than the shutter.

The whirring/grinding noise is the image stabilization. It is recommend you turn it off for exposures longer than 2 seconds.
