Its all lost in my earlier ramblings... I am having a scattered brain-day...

The powerbooster on my EOS-1 has a vertically-oriented shutter (on the bottom right of the booster), and I'd imagine that similar cameras have one, as well.

Then again, the EOS-1 is also a huge, heavy camera, and I'm probably going to sell it.
