    WOOPSSS!!! update di diay full nikon system hehee

    the camera body is a

    KODAK PROFESSIONAL DCS 760 Digital Camera

    DCS 760 feature highlights:

    * 6-megapixel CCD (3032 x 2008 pixels)

    * 1.3X effective focal length magnification relative to 35mm

    * New low noise electronics

    * A promised 6-fold increase in FireWire transfer speed relative to previous DCS models

    * Video out (review only, NTSC and PAL)

    * A new LCD and user interface adopted from the DCS Pro Back that includes a 1:1 zoom for focus checking and a spot densitometer

    * It will ship with DCS Camera Manager, a standalone application that enables the setting of camera properties, automatic transfer of images from camera to computer, camera triggering and extensive camera control. DCS Photo Desk, which Kodak released in December, will also work with DCS 760 files.

    * Support for PC Cards larger than 2GB (by supporting the FAT 32 file structure on DOS-formatted cards), and perhaps even the Toshiba 5GB PC Card when it ships later this year.

    * Exposure compensation in software up to +/-2 stops (similar to Kodak's current SLR range)

    * Voice annotation (also similar to Kodak's current SLR range)

    * Weight of 4.1 pounds with battery and PC Card

    * Will ship with an IR Blocking Filter; an Anti-Aliasing filter will be an optional extra

    Nikon has always been the 35mm camera system choice for NASA since the sixties till today. For medium format they used Hasselblads during the lunar missions, I dont know if they still use this today.

    Yes they do.

    203FE's with Distagon FE 2.8/50 mm, Planar FE 2/110 mm and Tele-Tessar FE 4/250 or 350 mm lens.


    My source tells me that NASA may soon plan to use H2D-39's but no confirmation of this yet. I personally believe that the reason behind this is that more common resolutions available are sufficient for surface photography, because after all, surface imaging now is a whole new ballgame with satellites. However, the move for H2D-39's can only mean one thing--they're preparing it (and its successor models) for the moon. Which is only poetic justice, because HB's were the first still cameras to be used on it.

    NASA still has a standard (film) imaging lab, and thus they still employ film cameras such as HB's and heavily modified Linhofs.

    BTW, the official NASA Nikons used in surface imagery are D1's and D2X's...other Nikon models photographed on board the STS or the ISS are either probably NMS (non-mission-specific) or personal units owned by the astronauts.
