Hiep, unless you are shooting fast action, where there is a chance of the rolling shutter effect can manifest itself, you can use the silent shutter of the A7r V, even in AF-C without any penalties in term of file bit size, if you save the files in the lossless compressed or uncompressed RAW. Actually, the same applies to the usage of mechanical shutter. Frankly though, the difference may not even be visible…

I have been using the silent shutter continuously on my A7r V. I was in Morocco for 9 days. That feature is so helpful for street photography there to remain “stealthy”. Except for my birding usage, I gravitate to the A7r V all the time, even at home.

Hi Joshua.

Have you converted to LED lights at home? What is your experience of the A7RV with electronic shutter at higher shutter speeds under LED lights? There are many features that I like about the A7RV, especially the image stabilization improvements. But its slow sensor readout concerns me. With my grandchildren, I am often trying to keep my shutter speed indoors at 1/250th to 1/500th. The stacked sensor bodies eliminate the banding worry for me.

Hi Peter,
No, I have not and most of the time, when the grandkids are over and I want to take pictures of them, for shooting indoors using either just available light or using flash with light modifier. I am aware of the banding situation under the conditions you mentioned but I have not encountered that situation. That’s why in the post above, I specified as i”n terms file size bit”.

You can check this out to minimize banding issues: https://www.sony-asia.com/electronics/support/articles/00122281# or just use the mechanical shutter if you shoot indoors at home.
