All m4/3 cameras use a mechanical shutter.

Really! So little I know.

Is it a shutter that is behind the shiny "sensor square" you see when unmounting the lens that covers the actual sensor until a shot is taken or is the shutter mechanism something that appear in front of the "sensor square" that I can see?

How can live view work for the camera if the sensor have a mechanical shutter covering the active light sensitive electronics of the sensor?

Perhaps "stupid" questions from a relative newbie of digital camera technology.
