The EOS 60Da features an 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor that captures such a high level of resolution it's easy to crop images for enlargement without concern of losing detail. A major factor in reducing noise, the CMOS sensor assures that images shot at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth even with the long exposures associated with astrophotography.
ISO 100–6400; expandable to ISO 12800 in H mode
With a broad range of ISO settings, expandable up to ISO 12800 with Custom Functions, the EOS 60Da can capture fine details with low noise, which is exceptionally ideal for the challenging conditions of astrophotography.
DIGIC 4 Image Processor
The DIGIC 4 Image Processor - the same found on the original EOS 60D - ensures that images are captured, processed and saved with remarkable speed. The EOS 60Da offers multiple aspect ratio shooting, in-camera RAW image processing, creative filters, image resizing and provides S2 and S3 image-recording quality thanks to the power of the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. With dazzling results, the DIGIC 4 Image Processor also works to capture and process data of images shot at 18.0 Megapixels at 5.3 fps, as well as 14-bit signal processing for excellent image gradation, no matter the exposure.
