(UPDATED) Surprise: Sony A7s has full electronic shutter!

Share

It’s a real surprise Sony didn’t make a big advertising on one of the Sony A7s biggest new features. According to Amazon US (Click here and read the “Additional Features” section) the A7s has full electronic shutter! It means you can shoot in full silence and with no vibration usually caused by the mechanical shutter! Quite a huge news nobody wrote about it! I hope this isn’t a mistake. This is Amazon’s description:

Silent shutter mode is ideal when discretionary shooting is required; like capturing a recital or wildlife. Activating the silent shutter eliminates the use of the mechanical shutter and therefore shutter noise by utilizing an electronic shutter in its place.

Also the well-known German Fotomagazin claims the Sony A7s is capable of shooting in full electronic shutter mode! The magazine also writes “Sony could not answer our question if the function (pure electronic shutter) could be updated in other Sony-A7-cameras.” (I don’t know if it’s technically possible).

Also Digitalversus writes:

“The other reason we’re dying to get our hands on the Alpha 7s is that it has an electronic shutter mode, which means it can snap photos in complete silence—a more-than-welcome surprise that puts it in competition with the Panasonic GX7.”

There is not detailed info yet about how exactly the silent electronic mode works on the A7s. Hope Sony will disclose more details about it soon!

Share

A7 deals:
Right now you can grab OPEN BOX Sony A7 for $1298 at Samys on eBay (Click here). This is really the cheapest price I have seen for a Full Frame camera. OPEN BOX means it’s new and only the box has been openend once.
And if you want it in complete sealed box you can grab it with over $100 free extras for $1498 at Focuscamera on eBay (Click here) and Cameta on eBay (Click here).
I bet that less thna one year ago you would not have believed Sony would sell a mirrorless full frame for $1298!

UPDATE: Sorry for the typo guys. Has a busy day and was also working on A7s news and made a huge Freudian Lapsus!
