Re: A7 III Timelapses - wearing down mechanical shutter

I use a syrp genie mini 2 to do rotating timelapses and i can use the silent shutter with that. I also have a GVM slider that also allows use of silent shutter. Im not sure what device you are using exactly or why it would force mechanical shutter only. Seems odd so perhaps im misunderstanding. I dont think I have ever used the mechanical shutter on my A7iii for any timelapses as I also would be concerned about quickly wearing down the shutter. I had an NEX3 some years ago that i used alot (not for timelapses) and the mechanical shutter did actually break after a few years of very heavy use so it can happen.
