GH2 Electronic shutter an option?
Jul 19, 2011

Woohoo! I've just got a PIXEL cable timer that for my GH2 that allows me to do time lapse (how difficult can it be to implement time lapse within cameras, sigh ).

Problem is I am concerned about wearing out the shutter. The GH2 has an electronic shutter when it takes 40fps, but what about the rest of the time? Is there an option to enable it to always use the electronic shutter, and if not, why not? What is the difference between an electronic and mechanical shutter in practice?
Thanks
Dave
