OK, I'll go!

I was watching a great video tour of the International Space Station.

After seeing all of the camera gear up there, I'm ready to go up there !

What could they possibly have up there to take pictures of

That would definitely be an adventure! Thanks for the link.

Looks like NASA found a place to store all the camera inventory from the Shuttle Program.

If they keep shooting time lapse videos like this, give 'em more!

Why not? It's really not that much stuff. Haven't you ever seen a photo of earth before? How do you think they took them? With their iphones?

Looks like another fake composite from Photoshop.

Looks real to me. I would guess the flash units would be for cabin photos. For example, like the one shown at the start of the thread. Interesting find. Thanks for posting it.

At least they like Nikon Nano crystal. I'm sure they can get some pretty good shots of UFO's flying by at warp speed, with the big guns. I'm sure they can easily spot-focus on the alien's eye(s) in the cockpit.

Looks like a future photo of "Lens Rental's 2042 mobile Nikon lens rental service pod for space tourist". Tourist dock their Virgin Galactic orbiter at the space mall to visit space pods where they shop and dine after achieving orbit prior to their 90 orbit adventure. Due to weight restrictions for launch, visitors rent their camera gear on orbit; visitors carry camera memory chips during launch and re-entry.

+ a few gazillion! At the end of it, I had to just sit and recompose myself for a minute or two.

Actually the current 200F2.0VR and the 400F2.8VR (with the new 2.0x III TC) was beta tested on the station (or rather - the only time-window for dispatch was before any production samples was available). They (the pre-production beta samples) are still up there. That's kind of cool, since there were some cosmetical changes made after the samples were sent up there, so those lenses are truly unique in many ways. Unfortunately it's very unlikely that they'll be allowed to re-enter. Weight costs almost as much on the way down as on the way up, if you want the cargo protected and intact.

They also hand held the 800mm f5.6 (manual focus) lens to inspect the space shuttles for tile damage after the re entry didsater. Nice to be able to hand hold an 800mm lens for critical applications.
