Live Your Space Program Fantasies With A Retro NASA Camera

This beauty is a Nikon F Photomic T, which first hit the streets all the back in 1965. Aside from being a gorgeous piece of retro tech, it’s also one of several NASA-owned cameras from the estate of collector Arthur Keir that have been put up for auction.

Keir’s NASA collection spans the decades, from the Nikon F you see above, to its successor the Nikon F2 (1978), to a bulky Canon L2 video camera that flew on the Space Shuttle Columbia (1998).

For those less interested in photography, Keir has also amassed quite a bit of NASA effluvia, ranging from a glove bladder to thermal slippers, both of which were meant for extra-vehicular activity.

If this blast from the past has you reaching for your wallet, be warned: prices seem to be a bit on the steep side. Still, some of these pieces could be gifts of a lifetime to the maniacal photographer in your life, so feel free to check out the rest of Keir’s collection. Even if you resist the temptation to buy something, you’re sure to get your daily dose of retro camera porn.
