  1. Hey Kiki, thank you so much for this post. I was wondering, how do you set focus to infinity on an X-T2? I can’t seem to find this information anywhere. I have both the F18-55mm and XF10-24mm lenses. Thank you 🙂

    Dear Friend,
    I was wondering if I could take a video of Northern Lights with my camera -4K capable Lumix FZ2500 (Native ISO 125 – 12,800, Extended ISO 80 – 25,600, F:2.8)

    or do I have to settle for time-lapse photography only.

      Hi Jessica! I think it depends on how strong the aurora actually is—if it’s not super visible with the naked eye, you’ll definitely have to go with timelapse photography so you can allow your lens to be open longer and therefore capturing all the light at work. But if it’s particularly strong, you *might* be able to take video of it. That said, I’ve seen some incredible timelapse videos put together when the shots were taken very close together (around 15s exposure and only a few second delay between each shot).

      Because I don’t personally use that camera, I can’t say for sure. But it’s got a great ISO range. Good luck!
