G16 - Mechanical or electronic shutter?
5 months ago

Hi, I have just bought the Canon G16 and was wondering whether it has a mechanical or electronic shutter. There is no shutter noise (other than the soundclip) when you take a photo so do I assume this is an electronic shutter? If it is a mechanical shutter, does anyone know what the estimated shutter life is?

Many thanks,

Alec
