Thread: Need advise for backup camera

  1. #1

    Default Need advise for backup camera

    need some suggestions for getting a backup camera. I cover weddings and events. usually I use my friend's cam for backup but I think its time I get one for myself.

    May I know what are you bros using as a backup?

    Should I get a budget 2nd hand DSLR or a prosumer cam?

    What are the points I should put into consideration?

    (moderators: pls move my thread to a more suitable location, tks!)
    Canon 5D MKII, 70D, 24-105mm F4 L, 17-55mm f2.8 IS USM, 70-200mm L f2.8 IS USM, 60mm Macro

    When I switch to digital, I use my film body as back up, now I use 2 DSLRs.


    The best is have 2 identical cameras, so you can use lenses on both body. Backup equipments for event shooting is a must, not only body, flash, lenses, CF cards and batteries as well.

    agree with you too. I was thinking of getting a film body as backup too hopefully same brand so that lens can be shared.
