>The other day I spent two hours and several nine volt batteries trying to quiet the characteristic beep of a smoke alarm.Being mon-aural all sounds come from a 360 degree circle, so I had no reference direction. I gave LOML the assignment to find where the beep was coming from, and she soon told me that it was coming from my old 35 mm camera behind the lampstand. I removed the batteries from the camera, but because I had never heard of a camera beeping, I have been wondering: Is this a common feature of cameras or is it just a feature of my Minolta X-570 ?
