This guy has recreated the Apollo 11 camera which was left behind on the Moon.

Link to Wired article

The photographer Cole Rise decided to reinvent that reinvention. For the last four years, the 34-year-old has been building a functioning replica of the custom Hasselblad camera that Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong used on the moon. Rise made nearly every piece of the camera himself, and the parts that he didn’t make, he salvaged from other exceedingly rare cameras and then modified. The replica is exact down to the serial numbers engraved on the components and the typography of the labels.

The Wired site seems to want a log-in or subscription.

Here's another site: Space Camera Co.

I just saw the amazing Apollo 11 film, so this is very interesting.
