Why not silent shooting all the time?

Not an issue with your a7r3, but with the a7r2 the files drop from 14-bit to 12-bit in silent mode.

Very interesting! Do you have a source for that information? Because I wonder how turning off the sound would cause the color depth to decrease.

You can find the information on the a7RII help guide.

Also on the help guide of the A7RII...

- When shooting images using [Silent Shooting], you cannot set an extended ISO at the lower end of values.

- After you turn the camera on, the time in which you can start recording is extended by approximately 0.5 seconds.

- When [Quality] is set to [RAW] (Uncompressed RAW) or [RAW & JPEG] (Uncompressed RAW) during silent shooting, bracket shooting is unavailable.

- Image distortion caused by the movement of the subject or the camera may occur.

- If you shoot images under instantaneous lightning or flickering lights, such as the flash light from other cameras or fluorescent lighting, a striping effect may occur on the image.

- When shooting still images using the [Silent Shooting] function with low ISO sensitivity, if you point the camera at a very bright light source, high intensity areas on the monitor may be recorded in darker tones.
