How do you take videos of the aurora? As each year that passes, cameras are becoming more capable of taking video of the aurora. This is why there are more time lapse videos rather than live, in the recent past. Cameras able to video aurora have become affordable, starting at $3,000 to $5,000. Much higher priced cameras have been available a little longer, but we have not seen too many videos because the average photographer did not have access to this equipment.

Newer cell phones can capture live aurora when it is bright, but will not be the quality you see with the DSLR or mirrorless cameras and lens (yet!). When there is no moon, or no other light source, video of the aurora is difficult without a low maximum aperture lens (low f stop).
