If you’re looking to buy a new Digital SLR camera or you’re an aspiring photographer looking to take picture of the night sky. Well, look no further as Canon has released its new Canon EOS 60Da Digital SLR camera. The Canon EOS 60Da is a successor of the Canon EOS 20Da which was optimized for Astrophotography.
As many expensive DSLR cameras aren’t optimized to shoot photos of the heavens and night sky, Astrophotographers, photographers who mainly take pictures of astronomical objects, have to learn how to tweak their camera settings to get the best photos from the night sky.
Now, the Canon EOS 60Da is a straight out-of-the-box DSLR camera for beginners who want to capture the wonders of space. It is three times more sensitive to hydrogen-alpha energy – the reddish light given off by hydrogen found in nebulae, galaxies and star clusters among other objects in space – than other DSLRs.
The Canon EOS 60Da camera packs a powerful 18-megapixel CMOS sensor (APS-C) that produces sharp and high-contrast images of astronomical objects, a major enhancement over the EOS 20Da model’s 8.2-megapixel sensor. So it is able to take vivid out of the world picture of the space with more details than images taken with an ordinary DSLR.
