Re: Rolling/electronic shutter vs mechanical shutter?

Readout is always with the second electronic curtain. Every mechanical-shutter exposure is an electronic one, too, it's just that there is no light at the beginning of pixel activation

when is the beginning of pixel activation?

or just before readout, so the mechanical shutter alone determines exposure.

Also, I am struggling with the idea that readout takes 1/30 or 1/60 depending on the camera but there are lots of 1/1000 and faster pix that don’t seem to have rolling shutter. Still hard for me to understand.
