Image © William Pekala - "A D2x with the special NASA designed blimp that protects the camera from the harsh temperature changes the camera must endure during space walks."

Nikon Professional Services (NPS) has provided support for every shuttle launch since the very first one, Space Shuttle Columbia, over 30 years ago, at the Kenedy Space Centre. The closest manned cameras have to be three miles away from the launch shuttle, using 600mm lenses, and closer cameras need to be thermally sheilded to ensure they survive the launch.

(For the uninitiated... it's the l i t t l e white 'bit' where (typically) there would be a pop-up flash. That is not there on a D3 Wink)
