The 1D was an APS-H body with an electronic shutter.I wonder why canon packed older cameras with some very useful features that are totally absent in modern cameras. Here I refer to the Canon EOS 1D released in 2001 vs modern professional canon cameras.
I refer strictly to:
1/16,000 shutter speed
X-sync speed 1/500
I would think its to do with it being APS, smaller, lighter shutter, less distance to travel etc. Not on modern pro APS now due to cost / usage considerations I would think.
Being an APS-H sensor is not the case. 1d2 , 1d3 , 1d4 are APS-H... and no similar features
