EOS 60Da Body (Infra-Red)

EOS 60Da Body (Infra-Red)

Designed specifically for astrophotography, the EOS 60Da is more sensitive to infrared light thanks to a modified low-pass filter that sits in front of the camera’s 18-megapixel CMOS sensor.

  • More sensitivity to IR light.
  • 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor.
  • Vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 Clear View LCD screen.
  • ISO 100-6400, expandable to ISO 12,800.
  • Time-lapse shooting with EOS Utility software or optional TC-80N3.

Description

Features

Sensitivity to long-wavelength light

Based on the popular EOS 60D camera, the EOS 60Da features enhanced sensitivity to H-a long-wavelength light, making it ideal for applications in astronomy. A modified low-pass optical filter improves recording of infrared phenomena, such as diffuse nebulae, by approximately three times compared to EOS 60D.

High Resolution

Capture high-resolution photographs that are full of detail. An 18-megapixel CMOS sensor works with a 14-bit DIGIC 4 image processor to deliver images that are low in noise, even when shooting with long exposures or at high ISO sensitivity (max ISO 6400, expandable to ISO 12,800).

Vari-angle LCD

Compose, focus and shoot from any angle with a Vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 Clear View LCD screen, even with the camera attached to a telescope.
