Re: E-System Mirrorless?

I design digital cameras for industry and it has always puzzled me why we still have the two curtain mechanical shutter. Most Cmos sensors incorporate a rolling electronic shutter (like a focal plane shutter) and some incorporate a global shutter (like a lens shutter)...

Remove the mirror and the shutter and you get yourself a silent camera - at last.
