2x Canon 6D or 1x 5D an something cheap
Apr 19, 2013

Just weighing up the pros and cons for weddings and so on:

2x 6D bodies so that if one fails, I can just switch over to the other. Also, can use both at the same time with different lenses and the same batteries. Plus I don't feel that I've spent so much on a body like the 5D Mark III. However, only one card per camera (risky).

1x 5D Mark iii and something cheap: nice main body which I would use all the time. Expensive, though. If it fails, I would fall back on something cheap and cheerful such as 650D! Hmm. However, luxury of twin card slots in main body.

Overcall cost, the same.

Any thoughts?
