GX7 silent shutter potential downsides
Aug 25, 2013

I am excited by the fact that there is at last an ILC with a completely silent shutter which I can use for my occasional forays into theatre and concert photography, but I understand from one of the early reviews (Expert Reviews was it?), that setting the silent shutter mode may cause a rolling shutter effect when there is movement in the frame.

Is that likely to be a problem with human movement on the stage?

Are there any other downsides we should be aware of ?

Also, I've seen a reference to a silent shutter being available in the G5 and G6 - is that true, as I've not seen any mention of it in a review ? My old GH2 could shoot silently, but only when using the electronic shutter in burst mode.
