Silent shutter is a full electronic shutter. The anti-shock shutter uses an electronic first curtain (shutter opening) with a conventional mechanical shutter as the second curtain (shutter closing).

The anti-shock mode almost certainly helps with keeping the lens steady.

Try both out and see for yourself what effect each has.

Thanks for your explanation, John.
I presume that it's the full electronic shutter that you use? Did you find enough difference between the two or is that just your preference.

Now I'm wondering if there is something I can turn on which gives me a sound when using the full electronic shutter (yes, I know that seems to defeat the 'silent shutter' principle but it would be nice to be able to use full electronic yet still have a small shutter like sound to know that a shot has been taken)

You're welcome, Keeth.

I've never experienced shutter shock, even with my tiny E-PM2 (its IBIS is pretty hopeless though ... ). I do set the anti-shock setting in the menus to on in the cameras that have it available. I need all the help I can get, specially these days after four heart operations, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, etc, etc. Getting old ain't for sissies!

Normally I use the mechanical shutter.

You, me and most others, mate. I've learned not to wait for the shutter sound!! It's rather easy to end up with 10-20 images! With a light touch and practice sometimes I only get one shot, but sometimes 2-3. Ah well, film's cheap these days ... :rofl: .

Many thanks for your reply and thoughts, John.

I did start using silent shutter a good while ago but went back to anti-shock. I'll give it another try when I can get out again.

(yes, not got your problems but at 73 I do have some of my own so I know what you mean)

How lucky are we to have this view of our back deck? Usually "Spike", the resident echidna, walks around and under the deck, but today was walking on it, sniffing carefully between the slats, and it was unusual to have a front view. Taken from inside the house through a window.

I only had my Leica M and Voigtlander 35mm lens with me when I captured this.

We went whale watching in Monterey Bay today. The weather was changing from very foggy to some bright sunshine. Shooting from a moving boat, in choppy water, was a tough day!!

When you’re sitting on a rock just minding your own business, and a pair of squirrels jump up right next to you and start making out, you take pictures with whatever camera you have handy. In this case, a Nikon N80 loaded with Fujifilm Superia 400

Went out photographing rutting mule deer again. Many of them have broken tines, missing antler or ugly stab wounds. Seems to be wilder than bar fights to get laid as a buck!! The buck in the 4th photo laying on the lawn was gored under his right eye...ouch!!
