K1 menu - electronic shutter

In a video I saw that the second page of the menu at the top is a selection for electronic shutter.

Is this correct and can anyone confirm if enabled, it uses this as default when in live view and it's the first curtain that it's referring to, or both?

Thanks

Neither...No first curtain or live view electronic shutter on the K-1. The sole exception is for pixel shift resolution where three of the four exposures use electronic shutter. Although many users speculated that first curtain electronic shutter might be in the mix, such is not the case at least for the initial release firmware.



FWIW, the camera manual is available for download from Ricoh and is in close agreement with the published specs for the camera. Most of this sort of information may be found using the index, specifications, and/or menu reference. The PDF is heavily cross-linked to expose most of the camera's features. I don't expect there to be too many "Easter egg" surprises.

Firmware v0.38...not the release version. There has been a lot of confusion due to photos and videos of the pre-release bodies lent to the press back in February. I may be wrong (happens frequently), but if a new K-1 owner jumps in on this thread with news that electronic shutter is supported on their camera, I would be very surprised and not in a bad way. The matter of electronic shutter has been discussed at length on this site and I do believe that Ricoh explicitly stated at one point several weeks ago that no, there will be no electronic shutter.

There is no menu choice about electronic shutter in live view, maybe in a future update...
