Sony has devised a fix for its NEX-5N’s annoying clicking sound.

When panning, or moving, the NEX-5N makes a plaguing clicking noise, tainting its video recording capabilities. At first Sony wasn’t sure what caused the annoying sound, unaware if it was a design fault, production issue or limited to a batch of cameras.
After few weeks and some vocal cam enthusiasts, it became obvious the issue wasn’t limited to just a few cameras, and so Sony went back to the drawing board to figure it out. Two weeks later they found a fix.
Sony haven’t revealed what caused the fault in the first place, but do say camera’s still under warranty are eligible for a “performance improvement.” Lets hope so, considering the NEX 5N retails for $899.
