Choose the shutter type. Choose the electronic shutter to mute the shutter sound.
If [ELECTRONIC SHUTTER] or [MECHANICAL + ELECTRONIC] is selected, shutter speeds faster than 1/4,000 s can be chosen by rotating the shutter speed dial to 4000 and then rotating the command dial.
For information on the role of the command dial when the camera is used with lenses not equipped with an aperture ring, see "Lenses with No Aperture Rings".
Regardless of the option selected, the mechanical shutter is used for motion panoramas. When the electronic shutter is used, shutter speed and sensitivity are restricted to values of 1/32,000—1 s and ISO 6400—200 respectively, and long exposure noise reduction has no effect. In burst mode, focus and exposure are fixed at the values for the first shot in each burst.
Distortion may be visible in shots of moving subjects with electronic shutter, while banding and fog may occur in shots taken under fluorescent lights or other flickering or erratic illumination. When taking pictures with the shutter muted, respect your subjects' image rights and right to privacy.
