Slowest shutter speed in video mode

Recommended Posts

But, even able to do one for sure, this "one" can end to devastate the shutter, no?

My point is: can G7 offer the same as A7RII?

A7RII offers slow shutter in video 25fps 4K. Can I mimic the same with G7 or similar camera without devastating the shutter?

If it's in a video mode - options 1, 2 or 3 from my post, it won't use the mechanical shutter, so you're fine. If you're using option 4, manual stills mode, you must ensure you engage the electronic shutter, not the mechanical one because yes, it will put wear on the mechanism

Thank you for help. I know mechanical shutter has a short cycle of life for multiple frames per second for sure.

About the electronic shutter, no more wear than to use it comparing with A7RII going on 1/5th shutter once in this latter case (A7RII) is video mode??

You're welcome, any camera with electronic shutters - which is any camera with a video mode has zero wear on the mechanics when that is engaged.

If in doubt, take a single still photo, listen to the sound with electronic shutter engaged and disengaged. When it is using the mechanical shuitter you can hear, and often feel the mechanism working. Do a test shoot in your chosen mode, just a few seconds won't put any appreciable milage on your camers and it will quickly be apparent from the noise whether you are or not putting wear on the camera :) Good luck and have fun!

That one I understood. I am just wondering if the wear on the camera with the electronic shutter using the G7 is the same going with the A7RII in video mode / slowest shutter speed...

I meant wear other than mechanical shutter. Does electronic shutter have zero wear? No, isn't it? Does A7RII have the same wear with slowest shutter speed in video mode?

Electronic shutters have zero wear.
