I have only seen one photo of Cernan's Gemini 9 spacewalk. Do others exist?

The photos that show Gene Cernan during his Gemini 9 EVA are S66-38063 through S66-38068.

While we're on the topic, I read that a camera was lost during the Gemini 10 EVA. Is there at least one photo of Mike Collins during his GT-10 spacewalk?

There are no photos of Collins' EVA.

Ed, thanks. Stafford, great pilot/astronaut. Stafford, lousy photographer.

The photos aren't great, but to be fair Cernan's spacewalk primarily involved heading to the back of the spacecraft to try the backpack. He wouldn't have been in sight of Stafford's window for very long at the start of the EVA, and on Cernan's return there were bigger concerns than snapping photos.

For GT-10 Collins managed to lose his camera entirely and Young apparently took no shots from inside the craft. Conrad's blurry shots of Gordon's GT-11 EVA left a lot to be desired, so we really had to wait for GT-12 and Lovell's crystal clear shots of Aldrin's EVA to get decent images of a spacewalk again.

This sounds like a job for artist like Ed, Alan Bean, and Michael Collins.

The post-flight corrective action list mentions that "one roll of EVA film and a 5mm wide angle lens for 16mm camera lost during EVA ingress" on Gemini 9A.

Cernan mentions in the debriefing that it was a 16mm film pack that floated out of the cabin.

CERNAN: I never saw the 'bug-eye' lens go. Never saw it go at all, but that film pack just ... that was it.

STAFFORD: That was a heart breaker.

CERNAN: That was it. We thought then (and discover now) that it was the film pack from the EVA 'bug-eye' lens camera.

Shouldn't that be S66-38510 through S66-38517 for the EVA photos of Cernan?

Yes, you are correct. My numbers refer to the photos that Cernan took while he was outside on EVA.

Too bad the EVA film was lost. But we do have the photos.

Yes... more CBS material that was originally accessed and paid for by myself and Gregg Linebaugh back in the 1980's.

I don't think this is a simulation. There is some grainy EVA footage of Cernan at 1:28 into this British Pathe clip.

Here is a still photo from the clip.
