Apollo 70mm Hasselblad EL Data Camera

The electrically powered camera, carried on the lunar module, featured semiautomatic operation. It used 60-mm Biogon lens exclusively. The operating sequence was initiated by squeezing a trigger mounted on the camera handle. A reseau grid was set in front of the image plane to provide photogrammetric information in the analysis of the photography. The camera was bracket-mounted on the front of a LM astronaut’s suit.

This solve is a modeled recreation from crowdsourced images using front projection mapping.
