| p.1 #6 · What is your back up system? |
First off, you've gotta be comfortable with your back-ups. That being said, I try to keep my bodies with the same basic menus & settings (i.e. 1d3, 1ds3/ 50D/ 40D). If you have a camera failure the last thing you want to do is be "figuring something out" when you've got people in line and you're late.
I preset all my settings on my back-ups before the job. That way if someone's (or mine) gear takes a dump, all I have to do is put a card in and go. Usually, your gear takes a dump when you're a team of T-ballers behind and you don't have the time to sort things out.
As for glass, believe it or not, I've tried 24-70, 24-105, 28-135 but myfavorite is a 50mm 1.8 mkI........ Light, quick, sharp (I shoot my T&I @ 4.5-5.6) and cheap. I keep two 50mm 1.8 in my T&I kit....
Don't forget to back up your speedlights too....
