Nikon releases D3S photos shot at International Space Station  
Thursday, July 8, 2010 | by Rob Galbraith
Nikon has released a set of photos captured by the D3s and perhaps other Nikon digital SLRs at the International Space Station (ISS), including three that are full resolution captures from the company's flagship news and sports camera. To date, NASA has captured more than 700,000 photos with Nikon equipment.

The following three photos were shot with the D3S in April 2010, during Space Shuttle Discovery's mission to the ISS. Click any one to view the photo at full resolution.

Nikon in Space: Nikon D3S, ISO 200, 1/750, f/8, 14mm focal length (lens is probably the AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED though the EXIF data doesn't include this info). Click to view at full resolution (Photo distributed by Nikon)
Nikon in Space: Nikon D3S, ISO 200, 1/1000, f/8, 14mm focal length (lens is probably the AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED though the EXIF data doesn't include this info). Click to view at full resolution (Photo distributed by Nikon)
Nikon in Space: Nikon D3S, ISO 4000, 1/250, f/8, 135mm focal length (lens unknown). Click to view at full resolution (Photo distributed by Nikon)

The remainder have been made available at reduced resolution. Click any one to view a 1600 pixel wide version. No shooting information was included in these files.

Nikon gear currently kept aboard the ISS includes:
  • 1 Nikon D3S
  • 8 Nikon D2XS (modified per NASA requirements and used for recording extravehicular activities)
  • 36 Nikkor lenses (including three teleconverters)
  • 7 SB-800 Speedlights
  • 4 D2XS eyepieces (yepieces made exclusively for NASA that enable image framing through a space helmet)
