Canon Inc. announced April 3 the introduction in Japan of the new EOS 60Da, a digital single-lens reflex (SLR) camera designed for use in astrophotography.
Ideal for advanced-amateur enthusiasts who enjoy capturing the night sky, the new specialized camera features optical characteristics tailored for astrophotography, enabling red nebulae and other astronomical phenomena to be photographed in high resolution.
The new EOS 60Da’s modified infrared (IR) blocking filter, positioned in front of the CMOS sensor, features characteristics that increase the transmission of light at the hydrogen alpha line wavelength.
This modification enables photographers to capture high-resolution images of such astronomical phenomena as the Rosette Nebula and Horsehead Nebula, both popular for their reddish color, without having to use a special filter.
The Canon EOS 60Da will be available for order in Japan from mid-April at an open price.
