    Just wondering if I can select electronic shutter on the E-P5 for a silent mode.

    I can set the Gears “E” 0sec anti shock but cannot see an electronic silent shutter mode anywhere. Is this possible with the E-P5? When I look at the specifications it only mentions focal-plane shutter, so I am guessing no electronic shutter for this model.

    Regards

    I strongly believe there is no electronic shutter on the E-P5. That is one thing I do prefer on my E-M1 over my E-P5, but rarely find it "essential" (apart from shooting in very bright sun with fast lens wide open)
