New blog post: Sending a Nikon D300s into space with weather balloon

I’m always amazed with people sending image capturing devices into space with weather balloon. So far, most of them were using small devices like mobile phones or flip cam. Except this 2 guys from Cygnus Project who decided to send a Nikon D300s into space. YES, a freaking DSLR. Check out their Flickr photostream . Follow their Facebook page for more updates. It seems like they lost the camera during the 2nd launch. Hope they find it back soon. PS : How I wish I could do something similar some day. But don’t think it’s possible in Singapore since we are surrounded by water.
