"Cameras is SPAAAACE "


Chateauguay, CA
          

A while back I saw an article posted about what nikon gear is on the Internation Space Station. Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield has been doing a good job of staying in touch with everyone on the ground and I recently checked out this article.

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/01/10/australian_fires_from_space/

The picture of the fire is pretty cool (albeit, a lot of what they take pictures of up there is probably the same!) but the grain is pretty present. I'm presuming a high ISO to keep the shutter speed up to assist in getting a clear image since the camera, not the subject, is travelling pretty darn fast.

What camera is that he's using? I don't know all the bumps and curves of the D3/D4 pro bodies.

I came across a NASA site once that contained a lot of the pictures the astronaughts take (minus the ones of ufos, etc of course) but can't relocate it. Any space buffs out there that have some resources up their sleeve for those of us that would like a more regular dose of the subject?

Searches using Google or Bing provide an enormous amount of information on the subject.

Astronaut Don Pettit shown in the ISS with a huge array of Nikon gear.

Nikon gear in space article from 2010 at DPReview.

I think the best information source is this link to the NASA/ISS camera database and support pages. It's called the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth.

I forgot to add the link to the NASA image galleries. Visit the site often to see the image of the day and to see new deep space photos from various terrestrial and space telescopes. The site also has links to the JPL galleries, Dryden collection, and the Kennedy Multimedia Gallery.
