APS-H was designed and made by Kodak first. The Kodak sensor was then bought by Canon for the first 'Canon' APS-H cameras such as the D6000. Canon then designed their own and put it in the 1D in 2001. The rest of the camera was based on the IV film camera - so it got the 45 point AF system
- 8 fps continuous shooting
- Continuous shooting burst up to a maximum of 21 shots
Kodak also designed the first APS-C 1.6 crop sensor for Canon (such as the D2000)
Perhaps we can now stop propegating the myths about why Canon 'designed' APS-H for maximum profit - it just bought them off the shelf like Nikon do with Sony sensors.
dude nice history. so Kodak is out of the picture now entirely since 2001, and Canon fully owns and produces their own sensors?
It is also worth noting that the Sony and Nikon APS-C are 1.5 crop so are larger than the Canon sensors
