    You mean the NASA Hasselblad?

    As a class III camera ("not for flight"), it's rather expensive.

    Class III...? And what about the other classes? I've got no idea.

    I'm really missing Photo Engineer here on this thread with his experience as assistent director at Cape Canaveral.

    It would be nice to have a synopsis of all the cameras used in space (and for what purpose) - if someone has a link, please post it
    Cheers
