Do anybody have an idea why D-Cams manufacturers do not use electronic shutters for their cameras?
From the microelectronics standpoint I learned it would be possible to add enable elements for each CCD cell.
Could you imagine a camera w/o mechanical shutter? Probably people could get more reliability and flexibility to use speedlight (no curtain problems) and to select speed!
Thanks for any input.

There are two different kinds of CCD.
"Interline Transfer" CCDs - which are used in video cameras and consumer digicams that have an electronic viewfinder - can control when they start and stop measuring the light that falls on them by moving the values from the individual cells into a series of shift registers.
"Full Frame" CCDs used in digital SLRs don't have the shift registers and associated electronics, allowing the individual cells to be larger but meaning the camera has to have a mechanical shutter.
