What if all the answers to the universe resided in the stars? What if your real home was in space? What if you had a camera engineered specifically to capture the beauty of the night sky? You do. Canon has just outed the proper successor to the EOS 20Da, with the 60Da “catering to astronomers and hobbyists” who’d rather spend their clicks on galaxies than flowers and Earthlings. According to Canon, there’s a “modified infrared filter and a low-noise sensor with heightened hydrogen-alpha sensitivity” — something that presumably means the world to astronomers. In more understandable terms, it’s packing an 18-megapixel CMOS sensor (APS-C), a 3-inch Clear View LCD (you know, the flip-out kind), a nine-point autofocus system and TV-out support. The Silent Shooting feature that we already praised on the EOS 5D Mark III is here as well, as is a native ISO ceiling of 6,400 and an expandable range that reaches 12,800. Canon also throws in its RA-E3 remote controller adapter — a vital accessory for those looking to shoot timed exposures greater than 30 seconds — as well as an AC adapter kit for those all-night sessions. It’ll hit select dealers later this month for $1,499, and no, this is not a joke.
