Your Very Own Space Camera

NASA has always been known for its ability to dream big. Sometimes things don’t always go as planned, (and they often go way, way over budget) but aspirations have certainly never been an issue.

Back on July 20, we celebrated those big dreams by marking the 45th anniversary of the first moonwalk. On that very moonwalk, a Hasselblad camera was used to capture the historic moment. In fact, it was a Hasselblad 500c that was picked up by Astronaut Walter M. Schirra, in a Houston camera store and modified to make it lighter and more rugged just prior to that first trip.

Well now you too, can own (for a price) your very own piece of the same technology that recorded Neil Armstrong taking his historic first steps. Meet the beautiful Hasselblad Stellar.

The camera was launched last summer, and includes Carl Zeiss lenses, full HD video and a 3.6x optical zoom capability. It has a wide range ISO sensitivity that allows the user to shoot in almost any light, according to the website, and it shoots at 20.9 megapixels.

The Stellar is only Hasselbald’s second consumer camera and features 6 optional wooden handle grips including, walnut, padouk and zebra woods.

It can be yours over at UrbanDaddy Perks for a steal too. Well–only if that steal is around $2k.
