Canon’s EOS 5DS/R: Has Electronic First Curtain Shutter (EFC Shutter) for ZERO Vibration Exposures

Canon’s Chuck Westfall responds to my inquiry about the “silent shutter” or “mode 2” electronic first curtain shutter (EFC shutter).

Yes. All 3 new cameras have electronic first curtain in Live View when set to either Silent Mode 1 or 2.

DIGLLOYD: excellent news. An EFC shutter is critical for fine detail. As a really ugly case (proven and documented in my review), Sony’s A7R is troubled by shutter vibration.

The Nikon D810 also has an EFC shutter mode. Even with very well-damped DSLR mirrors and mirror lockup mode (MLU), a vibration free mode can be critical for things like super teles and macro work, or simply unstable ground (even on a tripod).
