All M43 shutters are mechanical. At present, two Panasonic cameras also have electronic shutter capability; the G5 and GH3.


Some older cameras can also use an electronic shutter at lower resolutions. For example the GH2 when shooting a 40fps burst. I think the G3 may also have this capability.

Yes. The G3 can do 4MP electronic shutter pics. It's however essentially a video type operation and different from what can be done with the G5/GH3.

The GX1 also has this electronic shutter feature for 4mp 20fps bursts.
