These two cameras are often compared to each other because they both have a 24.2-megapixel sensor, but there are many differences that set them apart. The resolution may be the same, but the way these sensors capture light is not. The Nikon D5300 has an RGBW Bayer pattern, which causes it to lose some detail in shadows and highlights. This is not the case with Canon’s EOS 60Da, which has a clear pixel design that does not suffer from this problem.
What is D5300?
D5300 is a digital single-lens reflex camera announced by Nikon on January 7, 2014. The D5300 succeeds the D5200 and was released at a suggested retail price of US$899.95 with an AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II kit lens.
- Key new features over the D5200 include built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC, a higher resolution vary-angle LCD screen, and a new 39-point autofocus system. The D5300 is also the first Nikon DSLR to use a new Sony 24.2 megapixel sensor that lacks an optical low pass filter for enhanced detail and sharpness, similar to the D7100 which uses a Sony 24.1 megapixel sensor without an optical low pass filter.
- It also introduces a new EXPEED 4 image processor to further improve image quality and reduce noise levels over previous models. The D5300 is compatible with all Nikon F-mount lenses in FX or DX formats.
- When used in conjunction with one of Nikon’s DX lenses, the D5300 produces images with a 1.5x field of view crop factor relative to 35mm film or full-frame cameras. When used with an FX lens, the D5300 automatically switches to 1.0x field of view crop mode, producing images with the same field of view as a 35mm film or full-frame camera.
What is EOS 60Da?
EOS 60Da is a Canon DSLR camera that is specially designed for astrophotography. It features a modified low-pass filter and an infrared sensor for improved capture of H-alpha emissions from nebulae. The EOS 60Da also has a higher resolution than the standard EOS 60D, with 18 megapixels. When taking photos of astronomical objects, the EOS 60Da is able to produce stunning results thanks to its advanced capabilities.
Difference between D5300 and EOS 60Da
- D5300 and EOS 60Da are two digital cameras that have many similarities but also some key differences. Both cameras are the capability of shooting in high-definition and taking still photos.
- D5300 has an 18-55mm lens that is standard on most entry-level DSLRs while the EOS 60Da has a body that is specially modified for astrophotography with an 18-55mm lens. However, the D5300 is able to capture Full HD 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second while the EOS 60Da can only capture HD 720p video at 30 frames per second.
- D5300 also has Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication built-in whereas these capabilities must be bought as an add-on for the EOS 60Da. Another big difference is that D5300’s ISO sensitivity tops out at 25,600 which means it captures less light but produces less noise in images than the EOS 60Da whose ISO sensitivity tops out at 6,400. When comparing these two cameras, it is important to decide what features are most important in order to make the best decision on which one to purchase.
If you’re looking for a camera that captures the beauty of the night sky, the Canon EOS 60Da is a great option. It has been designed specifically to photograph celestial objects and features an infrared filter that allows for more accurate color reproduction when photographing stars and other astral bodies. The Nikon D5300 doesn’t have this feature, so if astrophotography is your main interest, then the EOS 60Da would be a better choice.
