Re: Live View implementation

Speaking of which, I believe Canons also have electronic first curtain shutter in LV shooting mode, are automatically functioning in a MLU or 'silent' shooting manner in this mode, etc. I don't know if any Nikon DSLRs to date employ electronic first curtain shutter (besides their Nikon 1 that is which actually innovates here by being able to be 100% electronic shutter without quality reduction).

Not only does this save on shutter actuations but it saves on shutter lag, and camera shake. If anything more mirrorless camera's should be employing electronic first curtain shutter.

Finally Canon's although terrible in CDAF are the only ones I believe that also enable a fast PDAF (Quick-AF) mode which flaps the mirror back down for PDAF focus than flaps back up.
