 Post subject: NASA uses Nikon
PostPosted: Wed Aug 22, 2007 1:38 pm 
Nikon announced today that it has received an order from NASA for "76 D2XS digital SLR cameras, 39 Nikkor Lenses (in two types), 64 Speedlight flashes, batteries and other accessories which will support both flight and training requirements".

I've often seen claims of NASA only uses Canon.

It seems there are a lot of misinformed sellers out there. :lol:

Agreed. I watched (far too much of) NASA TV's coverage of the latest Shuttle mission (the only sort of reality TV worth watching IMHO) and I am pretty sure I heard them talking about downloading images back to Houston, said images having a file extension associated with Kodak.

I'm pretty sure NASA's used Nikon, Kodak and Hasselblad and in the past, but I'm also pretty sure what gets launched into space has been modifed or customised somewhat...!

I had read that NASA uses for documentation of its experiments and walks space camera Hasselblad and lenses Carl Zeiss specially designed for graveness zero and without atmospheric pressure.
