Recommended Camera Equipment

Check our gear guides

For Night Photography and Timelapse workshops (and Iceland), it is highly recommended that you bring a DLSR (or Mirrorless) camera which allows for manual settings of Aperture, Exposure duration and ISO. The camera should support interchangeable lenses - FAST (F2.8 or faster) and WIDE (20MM or wider, 14MM is preferable) are best for nighttime photography. Lenses can be rented on-line at www.borrowlenses.com. You will also need a tripod. You can also bring a laptop (for processing your images). Once you've registered, you will receive a preparation guide and a list of useful apps for the workshops.
