Was analogue 35 mm camera Olympus OM-1 really in space? I read this article about this topic: http://elrectanguloenlamano.blogspot.com/2016/06/olympus-om-1-nasa-recognition-of.html?m=1
According to the article, 5 pieces of Olympus OM1 space prototype cameras were made and 3 of them were given to NASA. These cameras were ordered by Nasa to be used on Columbia space shuttle in 1981 and also on subsequent missions. My question is: were these Olympus cameras really used on Columbia missions? Maybe Nasa ordered them from Olympus, but they later changed their minds and used another cameras. I know about Hasseblads and Nikons in space. I know Leica and Minolta Hi-matic were first cameras in space. But I never heard about Olympus OM-1. Does anyone know more about it? Do you know some books or articles about analogue photography in space? Thanks.
