This is an Apollo Hasselblad camera. By the end of Project Mercury, Hasselblad cameras became the standard for still photography taken on American space missions. Known for their high quality construction and ease of use, the Swedish-made cameras could be modified for use inside the spacecraft or on the lunar surface, with easily detachable black and white or color film magazines. This camera was used for training purposes only.
NASA transferred this camera to the Museum in 1979.
