A road trip is the best way to explore the sheer beauty of Iceland…how else are you going to stop and marvel at Mother Nature’s work every five minutes? The Land of Fire and Ice is a photographer’s paradise; having a lightweight camera in tow to capture all that eye candy you’re seeing along your route is crucial. The Nikon Z fc fits the bill quite nicely, with a cool vintage look, interchangeable lenses (28mm or 16-50mm), the option for manual shooting, and all the modern bells and whistles like an LCD display screen and timer. Its sleek, compact design makes it easy to carry around without sacrificing on quality imagery.
With nonstop flights from New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington D.C., Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, and Orlando, getting to Iceland is more accessible than ever. Grab yourself a rental car and venture to lesser-known spots in West Iceland. From the Snaefellsnes Peninsula to the Westfjords, hot springs, stunning landscape, and off-the-beaten-path gems abound. Here are some photo highlights from an adventure around West Iceland, all taken with the Nikon Z fc, as well as tips for photo opportunities and settings to snap top-notch memories of your bucket-list trip.
