With a digital camera all the pictures you make are stored digitally, which means you can instantly view a picture after you have taken it and take as many pictures as you like, without having to buy new films all the time. It is easy to download the pictures from your camera to your computer, either at home or at the shop and edit them before printing. Once they are on your computer, you can easily share your pics with the rest of the world by putting them on-line, or e-mailing them to friends.

Long product name Canon EOS 20Da:
The short editorial description of Canon EOS 20Da
EOS-20Da Body - Astronomy - 8.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor - 5fps - large image buffer - 9 points

Marketing text Canon EOS 20Da

The official marketing text of Canon EOS 20Da as supplied by the manufacturer
The EOS 20Da is the first Canon digital SLR that has been tailored to the requirements of the Astro-photographer while delivering the speed, precision and flexibility synonymous with the EOS 20D
The EOS 20Da is no ordinary camera; maintaining the key features from the EOS 20D, the EOS 20Da has been tailored to the specific requirements of the Astro-photographer.

The diffuse nebulae is popular among Astro-photographers for its distinct reddish colour caused by the excitation of hydrogen. However, with the infrared (IR) blocking filter in front of the imaging sensor on standard digital SLR's, the reddish colour is eliminated. The 20Da IR blocking filter has been modified to allow more IR light through to the sensor, recording the reddish colour.

The EOS 20Da delivers outstanding images with 8.2 Megapixel resolution. The DIGIC II architecture drives high speed continuous shooting with a large maximum burst and quick start-up times. The 20Da has a new feature enabling easier manual focusing with a live, magnified image on the LCD monitor.

Full control
An extreme high (3200 ISO) setting extends the camera's wide 100-1600 ISO speed range. Both sRGB and Adobe RGB colour spaces are supported.

Canon supplies the user with a full suite of Canon software solutions including Digital Photo Professional, EOS Capture, EOS Viewer Utility and PhotoStitch. Also, included is Adobe Photoshop Elements v2.

EOS Capture
EOS Capture is a remote capture and control application for when the camera is tethered to a computer. It provides automated control of the shutter release, camera controls and downloading of images to the computer. The EOS 20Da is also supplied with the AC adapter kit ACK-E2 as standard to allow the camera to be operated for long periods on AC power.

The EOS 20D's USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection enables fast download of images to the computer. PictBridge compliant, the camera supports direct printing to any compatible photo printer. It takes both CF and CF-II cards, including cards of over 2GB capacity.

Online sharing
Free membership is included to Canon's online CANON iMAGE GATEWAY*, with 100 MB of free storage space for online album storing and sharing. Users can upload images to the site and direct clients, friends and family to secure online 'albums'.

Picture quality
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
8.2 MP
Sensor type*
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Supported aspect ratios
The aspect ratio is the ratio of the width of an image to its height. The supported aspect ratios are the aspect ratios that can be shown by the device.
Lens system
Optical zoom*
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
18 - 55 mm
Light exposure
ISO sensitivity*
A measure of a photographic film's sensitivity to light.
