This is normal. I own a XH A1, and I know the sound.
remember that this cam has 20x optical zoom. That’s a lot. With the fast zoom you hear the motor making the zoom.
This is because the ring is not physically attached to the zoom. It is done by software and hardware. So there is a small delay too.
