Re: Shutter video

Does anyone here know the difference between electronic shutter and electronic first curtain?

And I mean that from a timing perspective. Electronoic shutters scan row by row as we know. How does the electronic first curtain operate from that perspective? Wouldn't it have to use the same row by row mechanism as a fully electronic shutter to open the "feed" to the memory but instead of switching the feed off electronically it uses the real shutter curtain that just shuts the light out and then the electronic feed is also cut and the file saved. And the camera can after that again open the real first curtain and go back to live view?

Or does it work differently?
