John has a good point. It is very simple to rule out handling noise. Put the camera on a tripod or nestle it on a pillow and shoot some video. Be sure to shoot something with lots of action in the frame. If the ticking still occurs, you’ve got some sort of camera problem. The V1003 has no moving parts to record video. But the lens will continue to auto-focus, which could cause sounds. So try turning off the auto-focus function and repeat the test. And you didn’t mention if there is any zooming during your recordings, but that could also cause internal camera noise. Once you have ruled out camera noise, you’ll know it is the way you are handling your camera.
Good luck. Hope you’re able to work out what the problem is.
