Appealing to all those in search of Darth Vader’s Death Star, Canon has announced their new 60Da designed for astrophotography and as an update to the much older 20Da. So what are the important modifications (this isn’t really an upgrade.):
- A modified sensors that allows the camera to capture magnificent photographs of “red hydrogen emission” nebulae and other cosmic phenomena. This produces a 20-percent higher transmittance of Hydrogen Alpha line, or Hα wavelength, allowing astronomers to capture crisp, clear images of reddish, diffuse nebulae.
- The sensor itself has a modified infrared filter and is a low-noise sensor with heightened hydrogen-alpha sensitivity.
Those really seem to be the jist of it. Otherwise, the screen seems to be the same resolution but will work well with T ring adapters for telescopes. As a specialized product, the EOS 60Da is only available to order from select authorized dealers. The estimated retail price is $1,499.00 and it is expected to be available this month.
We recently had a question posed to us on our Facebook wall asking us how to set your Canon 60D to trigger wireless flashes like a Canon 550 EX. To do this, we’re going to borrow a bit from our intro to Canon Wireless Flash posting. Since I don’t have a Canon 60D, I’m going to use my 7D and show you how to trigger a 430 EX II (the flash closest in functionality to the 550 EX) wirelessly using infrared control.

With multiple days of testing finished, the Canon T3i has been shipped back and returned. We’ve tested it at events, for portraits, at night, etc. So is it right for you? If you’re reading this, you may want to take a look at our list of best budget lenses, our recommended Canon lenses and also the three way duel between the Canon 60D, 7D, and T2i (which will be updated soon).
