Why two cameras?
10 months ago

I have had a vague interest in photography for years but in the past 4 months have started getting into it a lot more. One thing I have noticed on this forum is people talking about carrying two cameras around with them at once. When looking at camera bags I see a lot of the bigger ones advertise being able to carry 2 DSLR bodies and indeed most people carrying two cameras are carrying two dslr cameras it seems.

What I can't figure out is why? I mean if you have one DSLR why do you need another one with you?
