    I love the fact that there is a bunch of Nikon cameras and lenses floating above me everyday!

    Just imagine being up there. Open the box, pull the items out and they just float right there in front of you. You can let go of the body. It wont fall. It just stays floating right there.

    As you read the manual. Make an adjustment and just let go of the camera. Read the manual a little more. OH, must have pushed a little letting go, starting to float away. You grab it, hold it in front of you, and let go again. It just stays there. You go back to the manual.

    It make it sound so majestic!

    If you were giving the opportunity to visit the ISS to take pictures, would you go through the months of intense training to do it?

    At my age probably not. Would be very cool though!

    I'd probably do it, but I'd probably fail at the training part! Haha.

    I would have in an instant, before I saw how small and cramped the capsul is to take them up there! :aiwebs_016:

    What will they do with them after 12 to 18 months. It would be an interesting anecdote to say I bought this camera second hand from NASA.

    Take a zero off that price (left of decimal) and I'd consider it.
