    Thumbs up

    A great camera in my opinion. It will do well with taking photographs of the Northern Lights, or anything else for that matter. Here's a link below to a review for this camera...

    I used my XTi last year on the lights. It was my first attempt at them. I got a few good ones but not any great ones. I was spending too much time trying different exposures, shutter speeds, and ISO's. I think I have narrowed down some of the settings so now we just need the lights to get out. They seem to be very quiet this year.

    probably the best digital camera for the money..



    Shoot ISO 100 f 3.5is and 20-30 second exposures...
