Electronic shutter vs mechanical shutter
Nov 14, 2011

From what I've read, the difference between the electronic shutter and mechanical are:

  • Electronic is totally silent

  • Electronic can do 10-60fps burst shooting

  • mechanical can flash sync at 250 instead of the 60 for electronic

Is there any other reason to shoot mechanical or electronic? Would there be any image quality differences?
