Canon has Released a Digital Camera for Fans to Photograph Stars

Canon has Released a Digital CameraCanon has introduced a version of the mirror EOS 60D digital camera for astrophotography, reports Engadget. The model is called 60Da.

Between the sensor and the lens at the 60Da is a low-pass filter, which transmits more radiation in the red spectral region. 60Da is three times more sensitive to radiation with a wavelength of 656.28 nm (the spectral line of H-alpha) than the 60D, says Canon. This allows the distinct images of nebulae and other astronomical objects.

60Da can be used for everyday photography, but due to the nature of color filters in the photographs would be more “warm” than the 60D.

Like the 60D, the new camera is equipped with a 18-megapixel CMOS-matrix format

New Camera Photograph Object Hidden Behind Obstacle

Camera can Photograph Objects, Hidden Behind an Obstacle

New Camera Photograph Object Hidden Behind ObstacleAmerican scientists have shown a prototype camera that can photograph objects that are hidden behind an obstacle. 
As a result of shooting are obtained, however, not the usual photos, and 3D-projection of the objects.At the moment the camera is able to “photograph” only objects of small size.

To get a picture using a laser. Its rays are reflected from the object, which is located within sight fixed by the object. Photons initially reflected from your subject, then the object, and eventually returned to the “camera”.Then, gathering data from all of the photons and calculating the amount of time they spend on it to reach the target and back, the camera creates 3D-model of the object.
