WOW - From Mirrorless to Shutterless! Global Shutters here we come?

Maybe I am missing something here but from the announcement - it appears that Sony may have implemented a Global Shutter in their new A9 camera...

So welcome to the new age of Shutterless - of course, what does this mean for flash sync?

I always got confused here - the old CCD D70 / D50 cameras had a hybrid electronic / mechanic shutter and you could flash sync at almost any speed but when they switched to CMOS - that feature disappeared and we got Jello effects and slow sync speeds.

No long blackouts - watched a video that claimed a blackout time to match the D3s!

Would be pretty stupid to go shutterless without a global shutter sensor in place...

Update: Maybe its not a global shutter but their stacked sensor appears to be fast enough to eliminate Jello...

Have they been able to scale it up to an FX sensor?

Without a shutter and a mirror - its really is all silicon development that is holding up frame rates and speed. No more mechanically limitations.
