Does anybody know what camera they used for this?

 

I saw a couple of shots showing the camera rig, but you can't really see the actual camera body.

Check out James Neihouse on instagram. We was the curator last month of the ASC instagram and is a legend in the world of IMAX and filming in space. Probably one of the more interesting months on the ASC feed.

I think I remember reading something about C500s being used.

Sure enough, you're right:

http://www.reduser.n...t=space station

The camera was delivered just on 2 years ago!!

 

I'd thought of RED, but I can't quite get my head around this sudden reticence to announce their achievements.

I'd sort of imagined that if  if was them, they'd be blasting it from every rooftop, like they used to announce every 2.5 seconds of RED footage that had been used in every 2-bit TV movie, or every low-budget Bolivian Used Car Sales commercial that used a RED One as a "B" camera and so on :rolleyes:

For the first time in their history they do something really significant and newsworthy, and all of a sudden they pull the "Quiet Achiever" act.....

 

Edited to add: Hang on, reading right through that  Reduser thread, they only delivered the camera to NASA 2 years ago; it was only delivered to the Space Station recently 

 

Matthew is right, up until now it's mostly been Canon C500s.

 

More here, but still no apparent excitement about it:

At least in space, the weight of the RED isn't as noticeable. LOL

I don't know about this particular footage, but didn't NASA used to rely on specially designed hasselblads for their still work?
