Are you Professional?

I have a spare camera and a spare, uh, bullet, too.

I do not really think of myself as a "pro" photographer, but I shoot evidentiary images as part of my police patrol job; an added responsibility, I am the designated photographer for my shift. I have a pair of Canon 7D cameras in my Pelican case, plus a 580EX, 580EX II, and 320EX. My lenses are not duplicates, but as my 10-22mm EF-S can shoot at very close distance, it can handle everything if my 100mm Macro L malfunctions. Sometimes I bring a 5D or 1D2N along, too.

The taxpayers actually do provide a camera, but it is a tiny Sony P&S, not nearly up to the task of true evidentiary/forensic photography.

As the OP indicated, I have spare ammunition, and, actually, a spare handgun, too, that being the professional thing to do.
