For both photography enthusiasts and those who are mostly indifferent to photography, no one can deny the breathtaking visuals that can come with photos taken of a night sky littered with stars or of a majestic sunset over a distant horizon. Maybe it’s our human nature that cause us all to stop and say, “Wow, that looks amazing!” Regardless of the cause, such pictures are endeared by most.
When it comes to capturing such photos though, a much smaller number of people possess the ability to capture astrological gold in a still-shot. Luckily for the aesthetic enjoyment of everyone, a new camera looks to make photos of space significantly easier than it has ever been before.
Canon’s new 60Da camera has specfically been made to be up to three times the sensitivity level to picking up hydrogen-alpha energy. That energy is the reddish light that is given off by galaxies, nebulae and other star clusters. It’s also what can help make something completely visually stunning.
And with all that increased capability of shooting shots of the night sky, just imagine the turnout that an experienced photographer my produce with this camera on the night of a metoer shower. Let’s just hope that person brings some extra battery to work with on such a night out shooting the sky! That extra cost should be nothing to them after the $1,499 that the 60Da camera would run them, but does anyone doubt if it would all be worth it in the end if those pictures end up all over the internet?
