Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $2,360.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Nikon F5 EVA 35mm SLR camera modified for use on Space Shuttle missions, equipped with a Nikon MF-28 data back. The top of the camera body bears a "Class III, Not for Flight" label, and a NASA label on the lower back grip reads: "EVA 35mm F5, Camera Body Assy, SED33110611-305, S/N 1067." Includes a Nikon Speedlight SB-28DX flash (with NASA label) and instruction booklets, as well as the plastic bag with deaccession label. In fine condition. Also includes an F-mount Hanimex f/4.5 80-200mm macro lens (with Tiffen circular polarizer), with no specific NASA attribution.

The Nikon F5 EVA model debuted aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery on STS-103, becoming the first autofocus 35mm camera used during spacewalks. Designed to withstand the extreme environment in the vacuum of space, the F5 EVA cameras used specific non-migrating lubricants and adhesives that could withstand temperatures ranges of -50˚ C to 110˚ C, while also being able to operate in a dry vacuum.

Provenance: The Spaceflight America Museum and Science Center in Prince Frederick, MD.
