Thread: How many DSLRs do u own?

  1. #1

    Default How many DSLRs do u own?

    Just a question to all my fellow photographers. I have a friend who owns 4, all 4 different brands. I thought thats weird, i know of ppl ownin 2, one as a spare, but then again for ppl who r hobbist, have 2 also for wat? y need a spare?

    I'm thinkin of gettin a second cam as a spare n im on the fence about it as i'm a hobbist.

    Jst wonderin wat u guys think n wat u guys have. Do share pls.

    Cheers

    I can't see myself needing a spare per se, unless I shoot events for a profession.

    But that is not taking into account, the other toy cameras i have, about 3....

    If you're a casual photographer, then there's probably no need for a spare. Pros, on the other hand, need a spare of almost everything. (They can't afford equipment failure)

    Anyway, I have my Nikon D70 as my mainstay, and a Nikon F80 film SLR for fun.

    You friend must be rich...

    If you are a hobbyist, there is really no need for a backup camera. So, why the conflicting statement when you said:
    but then again for ppl who r hobbist, have 2 also for wat? y need a spare?
    but then is thinking of getting a second cam as a spare. Isn't a backup camera a spare?

    I am confused...

    With this information I'd say the definite answer is yes.

    Most, if not all wedding photographers have and should have the responsibility to carry along to work at least 2 D-SLRs. Doesn't matter whether it's for different lenses, as spare or both.

    Else, you could always rent a 2nd camera when you need one. Infact you could own 2 cameras and rent a 3rd body if you want to play primes for weddings. Nothing extreme these days.

    If you shoot for money, you need another body, especially for weddings. Different lenses on each body. Works really well.
