We don't have a high-speed video for the E-M1 yet (as far as I know). But here is one at 1200 fps for E-P2. The SCO is slower and more gradual than the three other shutter-blade movements, wouldn't you say?


Thanks for the link, it's a cool video. And you are right, second curtain opens slower (but IMHO it's not a hard proof yet. One has to calculate the time it takes for the SC to travel and compare with the graphs we have and to keep in mind these shutters are different!). And also there's some movement of the 1st curtain at the end.
