Re: D5 - Auto Shutter type - threshold

Just in case anyone is wondering, setting D5 appears to use:

  • EFCS for 1/250 and slower
  • Mechanical shutter for 1/320 and faster

Personally, I think this was a bad decision. I think they should have had the switch to mechanical shutter closer to 1/200, unless someone can think of a reason why they did this.

(based on my few minutes of experimentation with a single lens on the Z6).

the EFCS problems with flashes at High Speed Sync start  occurring around 1/2000 and faster, so I think the switch could have effectively occurred around 1/2000.
