Re: What does "EFC" stand for?

Electronic Front Curtain (Shutter).  Often EFCS instead of EFC.  Basically instead of using a physical shutter, the camera uses an electronic one.  It has some advantages (e.g. total elimination of shutter shake, less mechanical wear and tear) but some disadvantages as well (e.g. banding when using sweep panoramas)
