Hello!

I have a Nikon Coolpix P900, which seems to work really well. However, the zoom motor makes strange sounds.

As you can expected, it takes a few seconds to zoom out or in fully. During those few seconds, the smooth whirring of the motor is interrupted about once a second by a sort of 'clunk' sound, which I can also feel as a brief thud in the camera body.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is that normal for the P900? Or should the zoom motor run completely smoothly?

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

That camera does have optical image stabilization, so it might very well be the image stabilization causing the noise rather than zoom or focus. Does it make the same noise if you leave it on a table and do the same thing?

Thank you for your reply!

Yes, it does make the same sounds, even then.
