Canon EOS 60Da with an ISO range of 12,800 built specifically for stargazers
For those looking to extend their shutterbug obsessions to the heavens above, Canon has just unveiled an exceptional tool, the EOS 60Da, the natural successor of the older EOS 20Da. Built specifically for those who spend more than the usual amount of time looking at the sky at night, this one comes with a modified infrared filter and a low-noise sensor with heightened hydrogen-alpha sensitivity. Sporting a 18-megapixel CMOS sensor (APS-C) with a flip-out 3-inch Clear View LCD along with a nine-point autofocus system and the conventional TV-out support, the EOS 60Da also packs the Silent Shooting feature with a native ISO range of 6,400, expandable to a whopping 12,800. Complete with a RA-E3 remote controller adapter, an AC-adapter kit and a purse wrecking $1,499 price-tag, this camera’s a great tool for professional star gazers and deep-pocketed enthusiasts alike.
