Why you need more than 1 camera

 When did you count for the last time how many cameras you have? The smart phone camera, the little point and shoot you have already since the early ages of digital photography, the camera body with inter-changeable lenses, the extra intermediate camera for when you don’t want to carry the big heavy one and there are probably some in between versions of point of shoot cameras, because they looked so good. Do you need all that?

Maybe not all of them, but it is good to have some flexibility. The smart phone camera is ideal to just have always a camera with you. The small point and shoot from the very beginning needs to stay for its emotional value and all the memories when it all started. But now to the heavy work. Why should you have two camera bodies? It depends on what you are photographing. On photographic safarithe environment is dusty and changing lenses is always a mission when trying to avoid sensor dust. So, it makes sense to have two bodies and the lenses stay on for the entire safari. One could be the zoom lens for your wildlife photography  and the other the wide-angle lens for the landscapes. Another reason for having two bodies can also be speed. When you are photographing sport events and subjects are sometimes close and sometimes further away, it can be very helpful to have two bodies with different lenses always ready to shoot.


But of course there is also the collector. There doesn’t need to be a practical reason to have more than 1 camera. The love for photography and cameras is enough, to create your own little museum.


Happy snapping!
