    I've noticed that when I move the camera quickly I hear a metallic "rattling" sound. I think it may be the 2 flash cover supports.

    Anyone else noticed this please?

    Keep up Peter!!

    Yes - I tried the Minolta A1 but it's a league behind the 300D.

    You won't regret it Pete. Image quality is far above any "prosumer" digicam I've seen.
