Cockpit At Night: What Camera Settings?

Fri Sep 30, 2005 11:36 pm

I might be on the long AMS-HYD flight on KLM in February. These flights usually leave most of the passengers sleeping, and flight crew that is bored. I am probably going to ask to take a peek inside the flight deck, especially since it is not a US carrier. My question is, what camera settings are the best for a "flightdeck in action at night" shot? What kind of flash setting(if any), ISO setting, exposure setting, etc...? The camera will be the new Fuji FinePix S9000. (Which I have ordered and is on its way! Smile ) Thanks for your anticipated help...no rush....it's still a ways off in the future!
