Re: Because they actually have mechanical shutters

BJN, you have not explained anything.

1.) R1 shutter as fast as any mechanical shutter. Moreover, it doesn't have flash synch problems. Also I know it has the same CMOS sensor.

2.) I know that MFT have mechanical shutter. I do not know whether this is the only option and why?

3.) Your posts only confirm reality everybody knows, and does not carry any new idea. May be you know something and do not want to disclose?

Your Sony has only an electronic shutter (shuttering using the sensor). MFT cameras have a mechanical shutter which is important to deliver fast shutter speeds from a CMOS sensor that's not read all at once.
