Hasselblad Space Cameras

Hasselblad USA’s web site has a nice set of pages on famous photos made with their cameras in NASA space programs from Gemini to the Shuttle.  I found it through my own investigation of  some guy that claimed no one went to the moon and it was a hoax with Stanley Kubrick doing the fake footage.  I don’t believe this of course!  Yes, our guys went and came back safely.  But one thing this man said (whose name I don’t recall) was that Hasselblad, who supplied the cameras didn’t promote that fact on their web site.  Well, that’s a lie.  They do--big time!  As well they should as it was a major accomplishment for them.  
So go HERE to see the cameras and HERE to read the history of Hasselblad camera’s used in space.
Always double-check what you read online.
