149756,0000000,0000000 Hasselblads are on the moon
IDK, but there is at least one in orbit.
I'm going up to see how many!
And, thank God he is going!
Use a Hasselblad with a strong Telescope to shoot the moon and crop and see if you can count them
They were probably going to pick them up later when they were not hauling rocks.
At least one body/lens set from each mission. Gene Cernan and I talked about it once (he was the last man on the moon)... ... bragging to that I have spoken with Neil Armstrong a few times, never asked him about photography though. Jerry Ross a shuttle guy told me about NASA photo training. He was a shuttle commander and easily knows as much about photography as I do having done it my whole career.
There were 12 Hasselblad Electric Data Cameras (EDC) left on the moon. The 70mm film magazines came back with the crew.
You mean on a sound stage somewhere, don't you? (ducking)
According to wikipedia there are currently twelve cameras still on the moon.
I call dibs on one!
does anyone know why they left them on the moon?
Because NASA hates having money.
So does the rest of the government!
To save on weight, they brought rocks back.
so the question, would you rather have a moon rock or a moon hasselblad?
I wonder if there will ever be a Bronica on the moon.
13, counting the one Sirius has tattooed on his ass.
I'd be rather happy to have a Hasselblad coming back from the moon ! OTOH, my son is quite happy to know that my 500C is the same model as the one which made it to space the first time !!
Do they still sell sections of the moon on ebay..?
How about an earth rock vs hasslebad?
Any chance they still work?
I wonder if the batteries have oozed by now? Would that classify them as Bgn on Keh? I'd take one for $ 165.00 but I bet the delivery cost would be out of this world.
