    Hasselblad manual for NASA astronauts

    A pdf with Hasselblad's manual for the shuttle astronauts. Found the link at a Finnish photo-forum and felt like sharing.

    Digital is for communication, film is for documentation.

    Thats impossibly cool.
    Edit - having read the whole thing its surprising how talk about shuttle operations in such a mundane way, but I suppose its just day-to-day life for Astronauts. Oh and I love the picture on p35, with the shuttle in silhouette and clouds behind. Stunning.

    PS. Nasa use Nikon D2Xs these days.

    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.

    I talked to Jerry Ross a shuttle Commander a couple times about NASA photo training... he said it was quite detailed.
    He also said he thought the Hasselblad was great.

    That manual almost seems fake to me... too general, and what coin do they have to re-set the lens in space?!?!?
