Re: Rolling/electronic shutter vs mechanical shutter?

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!
