    With the correct setting most any camera could do this. Tweak the setting a bit and you will get the blades to look correct.

    You would want to use a very fast shutter speed. There are tons of how-to's on the net that will show you how. ;)

    Bent moving parts like this are part of the game with electronic shutters.

    Very odd, why? Are electronic shutters flawed??
    How good could it be if it distorts like that? Guess its not just opening and closing that makes a good fast pic.

    Electronic shutters do not 'open' and 'close'.

    Ok.......so there are drawbacks of an electronic shutter I guess.

    The photo sensor is an array.

    The array is scanned top to bottom or some other similar methodology not sampled in its entirety instantly.

    Thus you get the same effect as a rolling mechanical shutter.

    If you can't use the electronic shutter to stop action then what good is it????? Your never going to need more than 1/8000 unless your shooting f1.8 on a snowy day.......
