Photography in Space - shuttertalk - May 1, 2012 18:19

Many of us will never know what it's like in space (probably not in our lifetimes anyway) but this Luminous Landscape article by Captain Alan Poindexter gives a fascinating account on how photography is performed on a NASA space mission to the ISS.

Some fascinating tidbits range from the use of Nikon DSLRs and ones specially adapted to withstand vacuum and temperature extremes, to the effect of the shuttle velocity on long exposures.

Thanks Shaun and Ray, I really enjoyed that read too. Here's another fascinating video - this time of photography at high G's in F16s.
