Default GoPro Rattle

Does anyones GoPro's rattle when you shake just the camera i.e not in it's waterproof enclosure.

I have a new, yet to be used in anger, Hero3 Silver and it has an internal rattle.
Doing a google seems to bring up similar, but mainly for HD and Hero2 and related to anything from the shutter button to a loose screw of no origin and loose LED retainer clips.

Not managed to locate anything for the Hero3.

Some do, some don't. It's a tad annoying but not the end of the world. It's the spring on the on off button that causes it I believe. Granby had the same issue. You can pack something soft around the button to stop it, but you run the risk of it turning itself off if it's too tight. You will find you won't get it all the time either, as the spring settles periodically.

Just drop some tunes in the background and create more of a movie over the noisy bits. Jobby done
