Designed specifically for astrophotography, Canon EOS 60Da based on the popular EOS 60D DSLR, the infrared-blocking filter in the low-pass filter has been modified to achieve a hydrogen-alpha (Hα) light transparency approximately 3 times higher than the EOS 60D. As a result, clearer, more crisp images of reddish, diffuse nebulae can be captured. With the same advanced features of the EOS 60D, Canon EOS 60Da including a Vari-angle 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor for Live View compositions, an amazing 18.0 Megapixel CMOS sensor, an ISO range of 100-6400 can expandable to 12800 and more. The EOS 60Da is perfect for long exposures while gazing up into the sky, there's nothing like the EOS 60Da.
To capture the full range of colors given off by diffuse nebulae in the sky, the EOS 60Da features a specially tailored infrared blocking filter that allows the light normally blocked by a typical DSLR's filter to be captured by the camera's sensor. This means that the reddish hydrogen-alpha (Hα) light (656nm) gasses unseen by a normal DSLR are captured brightly and clearly on the EOS 60Da. With its modified infrared blocking filter, the EOS 60Da captures approximately 3x the hydrogen-alpha (Hα) rays than the EOS 60D, resulting in astrophotography that is sharper, clearer and more accurate in the depiction of naturally occurring reddish hues of diffuse nebulae.
Canon EOS 60Da features an 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor that captures such a high level of resolution it's easy to crop images for enlargement without concern of losing detail. A major factor in reducing noise, the CMOS sensor assures that images shot at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth even with the long exposures associated with astrophotography.
The powerful DIGIC 4 processor technology rapidly processes image information captured from the CMOS sensor's four-channel output to provide outstanding color reproduction, as well as high-speed shooting of full-resolution JPEGs at up to 5.3 frames per second, for up to 58 JPEGs in one shooting burst. The camera’s standard ISO range of 100-6400 is expandable to ISO 12,800, providing smooth images with minimal noise in low light conditions.
The EOS 60Da features a bright, high resolution, flip-out Vari-angle 3.0-inch 3:2 aspect Clear View LCD monitor for shooting at a variety of angles. Convenient in all situations, the monitor's flexibility lends itself to tripod-mounted shooting towards the sky, offering a comfortable alternative to through-the-lens composition.
With 1,040,000 dots for spectacular detail, the advanced, smudge-resistant monitor includes high transparency materials plus anti-reflective and water-repellant coatings to provide clear and bright viewing. Superb for reviewing, editing and deleting photos or composing new images in Live View function, the Vari-angle Clear View LCD monitor is also the perfect means for accessing camera settings like ISO, metering modes, AF Point selection, and the horizontal Electronic Level.
The EOS 60Da comes bundled with the new Remote Controller Adapter RA-E3 for total compatibility with Canon's remote switch for EOS cameras with the N3-type socket, the Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3. This remote switch has a self-timer, interval timer, long exposure timer and exposure-count setting feature. The timer can be set from 1 second to 99 hours. A dial enables numerous settings to be accessed one-handed. It has an illuminated LCD panel and a 2.6ft/80cm cord. Perfect for nighttime setups, and for shooting at the sky, the Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3 is the perfect complement to the EOS 60Da's power.
