Ever wanted to take a picture from a satellite? Now’s your chance
Instead of focusing on new cameras and gear for CES 2021, Canon brought something different to the table. The company announced a new website that will allow users to take photos directly from a satellite.
The interactive website gives you the ability to take photos from space using Canon’s CE-SAT-1 satellite. Canon launched the satellite in 2017 and equipped it with a EOS 5D Mark III camera that utilizes a 40 cm Cassegrain-type (mirror) 3720mm telescope to take images of cityscapes and other areas of Earth directly from space.
It should be noted that the images taken by users aren’t live images – they are pre-captured during the satellite’s journey in orbit each day. But users still select the location of the photos they want to see in order to access the photos.
What website do you need to go to so you can give it a try?
