Re: Electronic shutter on the Sony A7R II

Silent shutter is a wonderful thing when shooting lots of images. Time-lapse, lightning, short exposure astro, etc. The reduction in vibration and - yes - mechanical wear and tear is worthwhile. (I honestly can't fathom the crowd that argue against the increased longevity. I guess they see cameras as trivial and disposable?!) The only drawback is that some cameras drop the bit depth when shooting in electronic mode. Whether or not this is an issue, I can't say.

The electronics will not be stressed in the least. Most cameras can record full-sensor movies at 60+ fps....  Rolling shutter and other effects should be complete non-issues.
