Our thanks to Chris Knapp from Nikon for teaching our series of classes on the new Nikon DSLRs. If you missed these series of classes, we hope to have them again early next year. In the meanwhile, our weekly basics classes are always available to you on Thursday evenings. Photos released yesterday by NASA shows why Nikon continues to be considered among the elite of camera manufacturers. For the first time, Nikon introduced the latest images captured in space by D3S digital-SLR cameras and NIKKOR interchangeable lenses used by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The images exhibited were captured with equipment, including Nikon D3S digital-SLR cameras, NIKKOR lenses, Speedlights and other accessories, kept aboard the ISS. To date, NASA has captured more than 700,000 images with Nikon equipment carried into space. Among these many images, those rare and precious photos that can only be captured from space, as well as those captured under the extremely low-light conditions of space that exhibit the superior image quality of the D3S' noise suppression features are introduced.

Our thanks again to Chris for showing us how to take our photos to the next level.
