I hope this helps (there is some info about silent shutter on a table, but not about electronic shutter).

“Silent Photography (Shutter)“ is Nikon’s term for electronic shutter.

This is not true.

1) There is D5 option (Shutter Type) where you are using the type of shutter (Auto, Mechanical, Electronic).


2) Silent Photography is another option on the menu.


According to the Thom Hogan book for Z6 and Z7 (latest version p.107 - I simplify what he is saying):

Mechanical Shutter: Mechanical shutter closes before and after the exposure (and then opens again).

Electronic Shutter: Mechanical shutter closes only after the exposure (and the open agains).

Silent Photography doesn't include mechanical shutter at all.

The full term for what you are discussing is electronic front-curtain shutter. Not sure if that is what the poster meant.
