...To increase the flash sync speed would mean replacing the focal plane shutter with an electronic shutter or using a leaf shutter (inside the lens) like the X100/X100s whose leaves are small blades so they can operate faster. It's possible for future Fuji X-mount cameras to work as well as cheap P&S cameras, but to do that they'd need a hardware change, and one would be to use the kind of sensors the P&S cameras use that have built-in electronic shutters. ...

It would be cool if the dSLR and mirrorless manufacturers modified their lens mount to add support for lenses that have built-in shutters. [Besides Pentax that have already worked that into their Q mount.]

Lenses would have to be redesigned. Lens mount would have to be redesigned.

I'm wondering if any camera manufacturer is already working on that . . . A h h?
