    This time I am traveling light to Iceland as well. I'm only taking 50 rolls of film!

    As Dan said, Iceland is very photogenic. Just go to a book store and look at all the choice in landscape photography books. 35mm is small equipment, so I definitely would include a couple of lenses and a tripod. You will need a tripod for the northern lights, waterfalls...

    Somebody once said that experienced photographers never-ever use the last two exposures on a roll of film, no matter what - something about never knowing when the second coming might take place unexpectedly.

    May I suggest a different option? Allow yourself as much film/processing as you want but with as twist. Pretend it costs you $20-30 per shot as it would if you were shooting 8x10 inch film and make a donation to some nice charity for every shot you take. The donation should be fiscally painful for your particular pocketbook so the amount may change (+/-)... and no cheating!! :-)

    Each to their own, but at a certain point you have to ask yourself, are you taking a camera along to take pictures, or to mess with yourself?

    A certain level of messing with yourself can be educational, yes, but there's a limit if actually getting photos you like is still a major part of the goal.

    My first time to Iceland was with Bill and I took one Hasselblad body, two backs, three lenses, two light meters, one Hasselblad Xpan camera, 70 rolls of medium format APX 100 and 20 rolls of 35mm APX 100. I shot a total of 55 rolls of the medium format film and I think about 15 rolls of the 35mm film.

    Could you limit yourself to one roll, one lens, and the other self-imposed caps?
    You gotta be joking, I was more like 5 frames per minute. Do not limit yourself, Iceland presents so many photographic opportunities any time of the year.

    One camera, one lens works well for me. However, I would take a small tripod and to be safe, a little more film.

    One lens is OK, I guess. But the film can be really slow there to shoot without tripod.
