    Wouldn't you love this camera?

    http://cgi.liveauctions.ebay.com/ws/...category=28221

    This thing just looks cool. If I had the money (!) I'd bid on this thing... I was planning on being in a low gravity environment with no atmosphere next month....

    Seriously though, I just wanted to let others get a glimpse of the camera. I thought it was really interesting. My assumption is that it wasn't brought to the moon because they would have mentioned it if it was... Well... that and the fact that the camera would have been quarantined on arrival to Earth with everything else that was contaminated with lunar dust, or maybe they just left it on the moon... I'm not quite sure...

    Check out the other Hassy for the moon...

    I'm really curious to know if anyone will bid on such expensive items from a seller in Vienna with zero feedback...

    I understand that they left several of these on the moon, free for the taking.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Lets pitch in for a space ship and collect the loot

    Even if it wasnt actually in space - its still a great (albeit pricy) piece of history AND photo-technology. I'd bid if I had the money... then again, its easy to spend money you don't have.

    Heck, I can't afford a normally Hassy, let alone one with an anti-gravity chamber built in!

    Now I can look up at the moon with a whole desired to visit!

    Well, it's accurate. Check out these images from Apollo 12. (I posted them in another thread already).



    and the closup



    I got a real kick out of the reminder to "remove dark slide". I don't know if it was only the NASA cameras that had that, but I liked it.

    Matt

    --on second look, the "remove dark slide" label is below the lock-lever in the Apollo 12 shot, and it is in front of it in the auction camera. I wonder when they made that change?

    I got a hoot from the "remove dark slide" lable too!

    I got about $500 or so... What do we need, a couple billion to buy a spaceship? I know there's still a Saturn V (the rocket used to go to the moon, I believe it's much more powerful than what's used today) sitting out in front of the NASA building... Maybe we can hijack (spacejack?) the Lunar Rover in the Smithsonian... except it's probably just a model! Then there's the whole flight control team...

    They are a legitimate auction house that specializes in collectible cameras. You can sign up for their auctions directly on their website, which I would do rather than going through eBay. I know J. P. Mose has bought one or two items from them, if he's around here (I run into him mostly on on the LF forum).

    I couldn't afford either of those but have actually heard of the seller before. I got a flyer from them a few years ago advertising a Leica body and lens rescued from the remains of the Hindenburg crash.

    Starting at 12.000 euros?
    Without any doubt, NASA was a great partnership for Hasselblad, both cameras and prices had gone to the moon!
    Even if I had the money, I can`t stop asking myself, for what?

    Cheers

    Personally, I'm waiting for the NASA Aerotechnika myself.
