[CP+ 2010] Nikon and NASA, a long and fruitful love story

Nikon NASA

Back in 1971 on the Apollo 15 Mission, Nasa already proved its love to the Japanese Camera manufacturer by using one of their models, a modified Nikon Photomic FTn to get stunning pictures from the Moon, and since then, the US-based National Aeronautics and Space Administration or NASA have kept using Nikon cameras for their missions.

And what you are seeing now below in the gallery is a display of all the models used by NASA including the Nikon Photomic FTn, then in 1980 the F3, in 1991 the F4 and F4s, in 2008 the D2XS and in 2009 with the order of several Nikon D3S including AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f2.8G ED Lens.

And if after that you still have some doubts on how strong and robust Nikon cameras are… Well I have no clue what other proof you would need to be assured!
