With fast enough movement you can still get rolling shutter effects with the mechanical shutter.

The faster available shutter speeds for electronic shutters may seem like a good option to stop movement, but the read rate makes the actual time of total image collection nearer 1/100s while still making it unsuitable for flash.

Sometimes it can be an interesting effect, but for most shots roll on global shutters!
