Electronic First curtain!

No more shutter shock period. The E-M1 was already great about that but this is good news. I would think first curtain doesn't mean reduced dynamic range like you see on the GM-1 above 1/500.

I love the camera description of the feature "1/320 or less". What does that mean? From 1/320 to 1/8000 or from 1/320 down to 30 sec. I think they mean "slower".

And yes, there is absolutely no reason for electronic first curtain to impact dynamic range. So it shouldn't matter. There are very good reasons for an electronic second curtain to impact dynamic range as it does in the GM1.

Lastly, I'm guessing the 1/320 limit is because of a limit in syncing the electronic and mechanical curtains in their implementation. At slower speeds any mismatch results in vanishingly small errors, at faster speeds you might get exposure errors or noticeable gradients across the field. In a camera that was originally designed for EFC not an issue (e.g. NEX, Canon, GM1) but perhaps there were limitations in the EM1 when they added it as an afterthought.

Very nice that they included something like this in a FW update!

Dang, I missed that first curtain thing in their description initially. (Probably because it didn't mention it, of course. )

I'll be updating the bodies tonight!

I'm guessing it's a benefit of the panasonic sensor and olympus had to implement this new to them feature in their own OS. I believe many panasonic bodies already had electronic first curtain.

Nice to see a solution to a "problem" that many people claimed adamantly didn't exist all over various forums

I just saw that some people already did comparison tests and the shutter shock issue is gone. Really nice, since it was my main frustration with the E-M1.

Updated my bodies. In the Quick Start Menu, there are now new settings for shooting speed -- single, L and H with the Anti-Shock.

But L and H are greyed out. I can only select Single Shot with the Anti-Shock setting. Doesn't matter which mode I'm in.

Anyone else run into this?

Hrm, nice to see, although frankly shutter shock seems to be a very rare occurrence for me. Still, better to have this than not
