Vintage NASA-Owned Cameras Up For Auction

Posted on September 16, 2011

You may not know Arthur Keir, but if you love retro technology, you better be. His estate has put up his precious collection of NASA-owned cameras for auction, like the Nikon F Photomic T (1965) you see on the picture.

Keir has a collection of NASA paraphenalia that spans for decades and it is sad that he would have to sell them off because of seems like a liquidation. But hey, at least he would make another maniacal collector happy. Other cameras that are being auctioned include Nikon F’s successor the Nikon F2 (1978) and a bulky Canon L2 video camera that joined the Space Shuttle Columbia on an out-of-Earth mission in 1998.

Not into photography? The auction also offers NASA-related stuff ranging from a glove bladder to thermal slippers, both of which were meant for extra-vehicular activity. Note that the prices of these cameras are on the steep side. The lowest-priced camera is currently at $300 as of this posting. You can check out the rest of the collection being auctioned here.
