Canon EOS 60Da

EOS Digital SLR and Compact System Cameras

EOS 60Da

    Canon EOS 60Da

    Aimed at astrophotographers seeking extra IR sensitivity for specialist applications.

    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.

    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.

    Time lapse shooting

    For time-lapse shooting, the EOS 60Da is compatible with the optional TC-80N3 remote control (using the supplied RA-E3 adaptor). Remote camera control and tethered shooting is possible from any PC or Mac computer using the supplied EOS Utility software.
