Re: Electronic shutter on the Sony A7R II

I shoot wit hSony and Fuji. Some cameras downgrade from 14 bits to 12 bits when choosing the electronic (silent) shutter. My Fuji does. The a7r3 doesn't. I quickly googled the a7r2 and seems like it does.

Losing 2 bits is really bad for night photography so I'd avoid it.

If you want to be sure, shoot using the different shutter options and open the file, for example, in rawdigger.
