Sony A77 electronic first curtain shutter
It is mentioned in Gary Friedman's book which I have purchased that
electronic first curtain may cause overexposure when pictures are taken at high shutter speed with older lens w large aperture and need to be turned off
My question is
1> would it be simpler just to use exposure compensation dial
when overexposure is found
2> what is the technical reason why shutter on DSLR cannot be fully
electronic as I assume it is for digital compact or mirrorless cameras
How nice there would be no mechanical wear and tear and no
shutter actuation life to worry about ?
I like Gary Friedman's light hearted writing style . Most official manual these days are not well written- too much on operating steps and too little on background technical explanation .
