You know the phrase, “learn something new everyday”?? Well today I just learned that using the e-Front Curtain Shutter is not a good idea with fast aperture lenses and fast shutter speeds… In fact it effects the image bokeh and exposure way more than I ever expected was possible. This is shocking information and I can’t believe I was not aware of it till just now….
This is a must watch for those nerds out there like myself that just have to know this type of stuff 😉
Well, I’m going to try this out as soon as I get home later, but I found this awesome video courtesy of Manny Ortiz that basically shows exactly what happens and why you DO NOT want to use the e-Front Curtain Shutter when using a fast aperture lens at high shutter speeds…. Thanks Manny for the excellent info and demonstration!!
Why you SHOULDN’T use the ELECTRONIC SHUTTER for PORTRAITS!
