    It's in the latest firmware for the E-M1 and is supposed to be coming to a new firmware upgrade to the E-P5. What is it and how does it help with shutter shock, please?:confused:

    It provides an electronic "first curtain" - basically, the exposure starts electronically and stops with the closing of the shutter. This is in contrast to the usual action which is to close the shutter, open it and then close it again. The first closing can cause vibration just as it's opening again for the exposure - voila, shutter shock.

    Thanks. Won't that make the camera also quieter in operation? (a good thing)

    As a heads-up, if you want to use it, you have to (1) enable it in the Gears menus (G or H, I forget which) and then (2) turn it on in drive mode (SCP or the "button" on the LH top deck).
