    abit tiring to carry that load

    usually I only bring two bodies, 2 sets of batteries each, 2 flashes and the usual lenses. already find it tedious.

    What to bring is depend you shooting style.

    Many photographers shoot with one body with one lens, one flash, another body lens and flash are back up in bag.

    I donít shoot with many lens, the most two lens, and now using AA batteries, daytime only need 5 batteries (SB800), evening using the same set of batteries plus the SD8A.

    I know Gary Fong also bring that amount of equipments, but look at his rates.

    2 Bodies, 17-55 (90% of photos), 12-24 and 70-200, 2 SB800s and 1 SB600. I find the chances of flash tube failure is much higher than body failure. I've already replaced the tube on one of SB800 at Nikon twice.

    Either your Quantum battery 1+ need to replace battery cell or you only shoot in manual power or shooting too much,
    I used to use Quantum battery 1+ and homemade battery pack during film days, the homemade battery pack also serve me well, but now use AA battery for daytime is good for me, evening using SD8A is good enough.

    What people mostly do is prepare for a whole day continue shoot (just in case), but mostly we do have a break in between, don't you think what you bring can shoot for 2 days non stop?

    No, this posting is to benefit those who want to try wedding shoot, not about complaining...

    Zoom lens is for on the move, when do tea ceremony and makeup sessions etc, use prime. So I just bring slightly more than neccessary. 1 pro told me, better more than less mah...

    I find it shacked also, but always try to put my bag somewhere safe then move around with my "SBO" with 1 body 2 lens, 1 prime, 1 zoom.


    Dun talk about me, share leh...

    i was once on a learning trip with my friend(not as a back up).i took my f70 and f90x with 28-80,50 and a 70-300.and of course my !@#$% sb-22s(hate that flash).

    use mostly my 28-80 for the whole day and dinner and 50 for some outdoor.70-300 for outdoor but less than 10pic...

    thinking of getting a better flash...

    SB800? Actually 28-80 is enough liao to cover wedding. My prime lens are mainly for blurring background, normally a unneccessary crowd
