Gone all the way
 
I was running an EM10MK2 and Panasonic G80, just traded the G80 for a EM1mK11,waiting for the battery to charge,then its dive into the menu time:eek:.

Decided while ime looking for the right settings i will run jpeg and E shutter,at least i will not have loads of test images to process and then dump and i wont be building the shutter count for no good reason.

When all the settings are sorted its back to mechanical shutter and raw files.

Sounds like a solid plan.. after 15 months ownership I'm still having lots of fun looking for the right settings and loving it ! Enjoy your new camera.

Why are you preferring to use the mechanical shutter rather than the electronic one?

Just interested in your views.

Not yet sure about how bad rolling shutter will be if i am following a BIF against something like trees.
If i find rolling shutter not to be a problem i will use E shutter.

I’m doing quite a bit of BIF since two years and no rolling shutter observed at all.

Just a sample of a duck fast landing across vegetation. Not a great photo but it shows the ability of the focus system to follow the duck and no rolling shutter at all.

There are several other similar pics there...

Is there any advantage to using Electronic Shutter over Mechanical one?

Smoother (no vibration) and makes your shutter last longer i would think.

Its silent.
No vibration therefore no shutter shock
It can go faster. up to 1/32000 vs mechanical 1/8000
and doesn't wear out

Are there any precautions or settings needed if using a flash with the electronic shutter

Panning with birds in natural environments has never given me any noticeable rolling shutter, but it is a different story with buildings around.

This frigate bird was one of several diving down after some scraps thrown in the Carenage Harbour in Grenada this year: it was taken with the Mii and 12-100 at full extension, and the birds were really flashing by. Bendy houses are quite obvious, and I now avoid electronic shutter when there’s anything in the background that might show this - I think you’ve got to be panning really fast, though.
