... or should I say BIG, as the subject of the photo is one of the worlds largests launch vehicles...

I had to smile a bit when I noticed this picture by Ben Cooper and made in 2007 during the launch of a Delta 4 Heavy Rocket, and published also in the Decembre issue of Popular Photography that I was reading, was actually taken using an analog Nikon N2000 using 400 ISO film. :wink: According to the article in Popular Photography, the camera was remotely triggered using a sound trigger that was thrown backwards a 100 feet at launch. Camera set at 1/125 seconds F8 and continuous shooting... The camera lens was "sandblasted" by the 4 miles per second blast and debris at a 1000 degrees... :surprised: but the body still worked and the film was fine :wink:

Did you happen to click 'next' and see the photo of the model next to the mock up? Now compared to the rocket exhaust, that picture is HOT! <grin>
