silent electronic shutter mode
although modern digital cameras have electronic sensors, most have a mechanical shutter in front of the sensor which controls how long the light hits the sensor and thus the exposure
many cameras now also have a “silent electronic shutter” mode in which the mechanical shutter is disabled fully and the sensor itself times the duration it collects light
full electronic shutter mode
electronic first curtain only
to reduce mechanical shutter shock blurring images at around 1/100th sec, many cameras allow the user to select a electronic first curtain so that the mechanical shutter is still used, but only to terminate the exposure.
on OM-D cameras, this is selected in the Drive Mode menu
