Re: Have a listen......

AFAIK, the Fz150, like all superzooms, P&S, has a leafshutter between lens and sensor, close to the lens. This is very small and nearly silent. In interchangeable lens systems this can not be used and with larger sensors it is also to slow, you would create a difference in exposure between centre and outer parts of the sensors.

It gets even more complicated, most P&S and bridge cameras can have only around 1/1000s as shortest exposure, the m4/3 reach often 1/4000. To be able to do this there is two curtains in the shutter, and the exposure is actually the time lag between the two curtains slumming shut.
