I was wondering (actually wanted to post an 'enquete' but was too lazy to figure ou how to do this who uses 2 bodies as their standard set-up and how? What I mean is: do you have two camera bodies in your ag at all ties AND do you use both during most (every) shoot? OR, is that second body your, well, second body used as a back-up for your main camera body just in case something goes wrong? The reason I ask is that I will be moving to Ireland soon (from Japan) and am so looking forward to start a new passion of mine LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY
This means hiking for great distances at times, so I am wondering if a second body (extra weight) is a must for someone investing his tie and energy in getting to a location in the middle of nowhere to shoot some nice pictures?
Thanks for your kind feedback!
I doubt you'll need multiple bodies for landscape photography. As someone else suggests, get lots of batteries (Maxtek are good and cheap), maybe a new lens.
I use multiple bodies only for video because often you want multiple angles for cutting, and sometimes action is happening in several places/directions simultaneously. At events for instance speaker/audience cameras, interviews, and even protests.
