Iceland late September

by /bio/bluelyne »

I will be in Iceland 9/22-10/1. A couple of questions. I have a new Point/Shoot camera, Canon G9X. I know the Northern Lights are best photographed with a DSLR camera but what settings do I need to use on my Canon to get the best pictures? Also, I live in Vegas so I don't have heavy winter clothing. I do have a puffer small down jacket and a hooded unlined raincoat. Will I be warm enough in Iceland? My tour goes all around the island. I wore this outerwear in Munich in late November last year, and was very cold when it was windy. I can buy a heavier coat if I need one.

Iceland is the best place to see the northern lights. You can see the northern lights during the winter season from early September to the end of April. Its depends on the activity of the sun, and the acceleration speed of these particles. Recently I have visited Iceland with my friends. We saw the wonderful lights there. One travel company Go to joy Iceland helped us to travel there.

Hi!

I don't think that would suffice. You need to layer a bit more.

You do need to have a waterproof and windcheater jacket. Iceland is not too cold, just like NYC in winter but too windy. The wind can make the RealFeel drop so any type Windstopper is a must. 

Photo settings can change depending on the surroundings but here you got some basic info:
