    If we had "faked" going to the moon... would we have done so good of job?! That's my opinion.
    And some people seem to not realize that if it were fake, the Soviets would have gleefully debunked it. They were certainly able to determine where the communications were coming from. They knew we got there.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    There aren't any more Hasselblads on the moon. The aliens beamed them up to replace their inferior digital cameras.

    I heard that in a bout of irony that NASA decided to leave behind a few Kiev 88's...

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that the Hassy left in orbit re-entered quite a while ago. From dust to dust.

    I wonder what films they used probably Kodak. They also left the Moon buggies up there so if we go back get some new batteries and go for a ride!

    12 too many!
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    The astronauts used Kodak color film that was coated on special thin base so that they could get more exposures / roll or magazine full. The film was pretested in vacuum at low and high temperature to assure quality in spite of the possibility of losing some of the volatile materials due to the conditions found on the moon.
