Re: Rolling shutter example, add yours

To save reposting, for anyone coming to this thread in the future hereís a link to the other thread with some further examples: https://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=51082

Since I saw the effect in that Frigatebird shot, I now try to remember to switch to mechanical shutter when Iím photographing anything moving very fast against a background that might be affected (vertical straight elements, especially trees and manmade objects). It really does have to be very fast, though.

Interesting now to see the effects on fast wings, when the subjects are filling the frame, anyway. Switching under those circumstances is likely to be more problematic in that the subject might get disturbed by the noise, but Iíll bear it in mind from now on.

Was this the only image taken or did you take more and it was the same with all of them?

Roy there were a few that showed the same rolling shutter effect, I changed the shutter speed by a step (⅓ EV) and the effect went away, itís purely due to the downward speed of the wing being identical to the electronic shutter downward speed.

BTW itís not an Olympus thing - itís an electronic shutter thing - my daughter was having similar issues with her scanning electron microscope!

The electronic shutter is great as it makes the camera silent, but the mechanical shutter removes these anomalies but is a little noisier!

Re: Rolling shutter example, add yours

For any others new to mirrorless, silent shutter can also cause banding problems under certain types of CFT and LED lighting. This is common in shops and museums these days, and is also sometimes appearing in street lighting.

Under such circumstances itís always worth shooting a test shot if you can, and altering the shutter speed often cures it.

Itís so wonderful to be able to shoot entirely silently (concerts and plays, candid street photography, wildlife) that the extra bit of care required is well worth it. I canít wait for the death-rattle of the DSLR in birding hides to be silenced forever!

I took these in the MOCO museum in Amsterdam.
https://mocomuseum.com/artists/danie...am-exhibition/

The exhibition was very strongly lit presumably with LED sources.
This installation was in a corner of the room, all white.

The first shot with silent shutter...



And then with Antishock mechanical shutter.



Both images are straight out of the camera, just resized for the gallery. Hence the flat look.

I knew what was going on and it was simple to switch mode. The only other common drawback of using silent shutter is you can be puzzled why the flash options are greyed out. Otherwise it's very, very useful!

Yes, that's it.

If I know I'm going to be shooting people in a museum, shop, shopping mall or gallery I quite often take my Fuji X70 - it has a leaf shutter which is almost silent and isn't affected by banding. It's also tiny and stays below most people's radar (including security guards ).
