An only thing that could move in the body is an ultrasonic motor to shake dust off from your sensor. That should only activate when you power on or off. There is no other motor inside D5000 body. I am not sure what you mean by "OS" though. Optical stabilization? Does that mean you have a third party lens? If that lens is working correctly, it usually activates when you press the shutter half way. You will hear it. It's a function of the lens, not the body though.

There are some basic skills a person needs when shooting video. * before shooting, the camera must be locked down on the tripod and the lens focused on the subject. * if you intend to pan up/down or side to side, you need a fluid head. The noise you are experiencing is troubling. Since there is no motor turning the take up reel like on old video camera There may be some noise generated by the image stabilization scheme (VR) in the lens, but AF-S lenses are not known for making any noises. You may want to have the lens checked by a repair shop. Take a sample video file with you so you can demonstrate what you are experiencing.

I think it could be that the motor driving the mirror could be causing your problem. If the mirror is not locking up properly and the motor continues to run, it could shake the camera. Only service by an authorized shop could verify this. I would start talking to the camera manufacturer to get a repair estimate.

If you can try a different lens, do that. You need to rule out either the lens or the camera as the source of the problem. I think it's time to send either the lens or camera in for repair.

OS is the Sigma equivalent of Nikon's VR. Switch it off when on the tripod.
