    So I stuck my battery in today, and my unit is making some light buzzing that is going on and off around the camera area. Is this normal ? The sound sounds like a motor is doing something, but nothing is going on. I had nothing else attached or turned on, didn't matter which position the on/off switch was in, or if the cord was plugged into the back.

    You are hearing the small cooling fan that is inside the camera.
    So yes.. It's a motor and normal :)

    Hmmm... I wonder what the MTBF is on that fan. I guess if you STOP hearing the noise, you know it's gone...
