As the company proudly announced Nikonshe received an order from NASA on 11 digital cameras Nikon D3S, which are planned to be used in space research. Excellent advertising, I must say.
The cameras, worth $6,500, are planned to be used to capture everyday life on board the ISS. At the same time, any major modification of this equipment is not required (Nikon declares this with even greater pride).
By the way, this is not the first such contract for Nikon. Its equipment has been used by NASA specialists since the early 1970s. It was first used at the launch of Apollo 15, when the fourth landing of people on the moon was carried out. During the entire period of cooperation, at least 700 thousand photographs were taken.
