Remember that one shutter "chases" the other at high shutter speeds. The electronic shutter starts exposure, line-by-line, at the same speed as the mechanical shutter will traverse the sensor... the result being a strip of exposure between the two shutters that sweeps across the sensor and exposes all of it equally. This actually seems to be an issue where, in some cameras, the speed of the mechanical shutter doesn't match the speed of the electronic shutter. Maybe Sony or Copal was inconsistent in the specifications of the shutters they supplied.

A7 with kit lens and a number of legacy lenses (mostly Canon FD); A3000 converted to IR.
