A couple of GH3 questions (on efcs and evf with H/SH bursts), plus last-minute E-M5 additions
Feb 19, 2013

I've just ran through the GH3 manuals and was after a couple of clarifications if anyone out there knows the answers...

Firstly I know both curtains can be electronic but is it possible to have electronic front curtain shutter and mechanical second curtain, as many Canon and Sony cameras have (for low vibration while avoiding the jello effect of the full electronic shutter, e.g. car pic here http://m43photo.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/gh3-electronic-shutter.html )? I assume this is more of question of whether they licensed the Canon patents but I just wanted to know the answer rather than the legal stuff. BTW anyone know if the E-M5 has this?

Secondly am I correct in reading that in 6fps the EVF is blank for all the time you are shooting, so you can't see what you're shooting, or is there some kind of image review happening? Also anyone know what happens with the E-M5?

Thanks in advance

John
