What this function does

When you press the shutter button fully on a Micro Four Thirds camera, the shutter first closes and the immediately opens to take the picture. In most cases this does not affect the image. However, when using microscope or super telephoto lenses at large magnification ratios, the movement of the shutter closing can result in vibrations and may cause blur in the image. With [ANTI-SHOCK], a time lag is introduced between the shutter closing and it opening, greatly reducing the vibrations when the picture is taken.
[1 SEC-]
Sets the time lag between when the shutter first closes after pressing the shutter button and until it starts opening. You can lift your finger from the shutter release button after pressing fully. The shutter will open after the selected time has elapsed.
