Space – the final frontier for Nikon
Normally it wouldn’t be a big deal if a huge camera company like Nikon receives an order for 11 cameras and 7 lenses. In fact, Nikon probably won’t even want to entertain such a miniscule order! Unless of course the customer happens to be American space agency NASA, and the “small order” justifies a press release. Nikon announced recently that NASA has placed an order for 11 sets of Nikon D3S and 7 units of the AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED lens for their space mission. According to the press release, NASA has been using Nikon to capture more than 700,000 pictures in space. To infinity and beyond!
