Please excuse what may be a naive question. With a lens off and the mirror locked up a cleaning swab can be applied directly to the sensor (or more properly) the filter above the sensor. So where is the shutter itself? Between filter and sensor?

I am presuming the shutter is mechanical with front and rear curtains as opposed to a completely electronic shutter. If that presumption is wrong, then could someone explain how an electronic shutter works and what that means for rear curtain flash modes.

Thanks very much
