The Canon EOS 60Da is designed for astrophotography. It is more sensitive to infrared light than a typical DSLR. It also has a range of standard DSLR features.
The EOS 60Da features enhanced sensitivity to H-a long-wavelength light. This is achieved by using a modified low-pass optical filter. The filter improves recording of infrared phenomena, such as diffuse nebulae, by approximately three times compared to the EOS 60D.
A time lapse shooting feature has also been included. This allows you to track moving subjects such as the movement of stars across the sky.
Other features include 18 megapixels and a 3 inch LCD screen. The screen pulls out and twists away from the body. This helps you to find a more comfortable shooting position. High speed shooting is catered for by a 5.3 frames per second burst mode. For focusing there is a 9 point autofocus system. All 9 points are cross type sensors. Canon have also included an electronic spirit level. Images can be stored in RAW as well as Jpeg. The use of 63 separate metering zones helps to ensure correct exposure.
The EOS 60Da is capable of shooting Full High Definition Movies (1080p).
This camera is compatible with both EF and EF-S lenses.
