Take photos of Earth from space with Canon’s 5D Mark III camera




Canon The interactive demo allows you take images from multiple locations, with each shot showing the location and altitude of the image. However, it uses pre-captured imagery, so you’re not actually grabbing live or unique photos. If it was live, CE-SAT-1 would be zipping around the Earth at nearly 17,000 miles per hour, circling the globe in just over an hour and half. The demonstration does give you a feel for the satellite’s capabilities and resolution, however.The experience is narrated by astronaut Marsha Ivins, who explains the satellite’s purpose and design. The microsatellites are much smaller and cheaper than regular satellites, and Canon hopes to build a billion dollar business around them by 2030. After launching the CE-SAT-1 in 2017, Canon attempted to launch an updated CE-SAT-1B last summer. However, it was lost when RocketLab’s Electron rocket failed shortly after launch.
