Excited as I was to be receiving the cameras that I could only dream about owning a few years ago, I carelessly overlooked a small dent in the bottom corner of one of the two cardboard boxes. I ordered the power supply and accessories late (unlike all the smarter folks here that did exactly the opposite), so all I could do at this point is marvel at its compact, solid design and imagine a little. . .and that was fine.
As I turned the device around examining its exquisite form and texture I could faintly discern the slightest rattle coming from within the brain. Strange, not being too alarmed by the sound because it sounded rather precise, unlike like a loose bolt or unseated connector, I began to compare it to the other Epic that came with it's brother, nothing, solid as a rock! Now with no immediate way to test the Epic, all I feel is a pit in my stomach and an unreasonable sense of dread.
I remember the small dent in the bottom corner of the box and when I look inside, I see a small broken off black foot belonging to the storage case, broken off on the same corner. No concerns about the case, but I wonder if there is damage to the precious brain, hence the slight rattle.
I immediately contacted my rep, to find out what my options are, now I anxiously wait to see if they can save the day. . .Please.
Thank You Fed EX, for your fine service! (Extreme sarcasm)
So just to quell my troublesome curiosity, to all my fellow Epic owners: Does your brain rattle at all when you rock it (gently) back and forth?

UPDATE 2/22/12: A HUGE THANKS to Tim Sutherland and the Red Team's suggestion to check the Redmote contact pins as the source of the rattle, they have solved the mystery and have brought an unimaginable sigh of relief to me!!!! Thank goodness my feeling of relief far overshadows my embarrassment over not checking those simple pins. Thanks again guys!!!!
