Hasselblad cameras on moon in July,20 1969

Photography and July, 1969 moon landing

What camera were used to take picture in moon (July,20 1969) by Astronouts ? Hasselblad cameras.
Recalling the history of its cameras in space Hasselblad said: 'In 1962, astronaut Walter Schirra took his Hasselblad on board the Mercury-Atlas 8 and took the first images of earth from space. Hasselblad followed NASA, on space flight after space flight, with Hasselblad cameras proving that they could meet the stringent demands made by extraterrestrial travel.

'And in 1969 when the world watched in awe as the Apollo 11 astronauts became the first men to set foot on the moon, those astronauts also carried Hasselblad cameras, capturing some of the most definitive images man has ever captured.'
Hasselblad customers who buy an H3D11-50 or H3D11-60 camera until 21 August will be eligible to take part in the trip to Florida, which will include a weekend of seminars, training and photography, followed by a competition.

The event takes place from 24-26 September.
