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

Canon EOS 5DS R

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).
