New book : Hasselblad and the Moon

New book : Hasselblad and the Moon

Being a collector of Hasselblad cameras for years, I naturally became interested in Hasselblad cameras used by NASA for the Conquest of the Moon.

During my initial search, I quickly noticed that documentation related to these cameras was scarce and mostly incomplete.

So I started to collect cameras, lenses, photographs, instruction leaflets and all the data I could gather about Hasselblad and NASA.

After many years of research, here is the result : a book titled "Hasselblad and the Moon" which, hopefully, will help you get a better understanding of these wonderful Hasselblad cameras used by NASA.

This book is written in English and in French. There are 5 chapters :

  • The conquest of the Moon
  • The Hasselblad firm
  • Hasselblad cameras used by NASA for the conquest of the Moon during Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions between 1968 and 1972
  • Replicas made by Hasselblad for its own advertising
  • Photographs taken in space and on the Moon showing Hasselblad cameras, astronauts training with Hasselblad cameras and Hasselblad cameras in Museums

I hope you will enjoy reading this book as much as I have enjoyed writing it.

Price : 49 euros. 168 pages and 133 photographs.

Order my book: Hasselblad and the Moon.

Best regards,
