What does "EFC" stand for?

I found that EFOV stands for "Extended field of view" but can't find the meaning of EFC.
Thanks for letting me know!

Re: What does "EFC" stand for?

I've been involved with photography for 50+ years and I've never heard of either acronym. But then I'm always the last to know this sort of stuff.

FWIW, I have no idea of what an "extended field of view" would be.  Would that be "wide angle"?

Electronic Front Curtain (Shutter).  Often EFCS instead of EFC.  Basically instead of using a physical shutter, the camera uses an electronic one.  It has some advantages (e.g. total elimination of shutter shake, less mechanical wear and tear) but some disadvantages as well (e.g. banding when using sweep panoramas)

Simple, Eggplant Film Camera. A hollowed out eggplant turned into a pinhole camera. Automatically sepia tones them.

There's a remote possibility, since you list a Sony camera, it might mean Electronic First Curtain shutter. Rather than have mechanical shutter open for the exposure, the camera simulates it electronically. A physical shutter closes to end the exposure. Less noise, less shake at the beginning of the exposure, less wear on the shutter mechanism, and less lag between finger press and beginning of exposure.
