Not sure if I posted this in the right area, but I think it fits.
Anyway, I am shooting a charity event this weekend for a well known organization. I am volunteering my time because I think it is a good cause and a goot networking opportunity, I know some of you may disagree with doing that, but either way, it's besides the point.
Right now, I have two bodies, a 5dii and a 7d. With the 5diii with my 24-70, am I better off also carrying the 7d with me with another lens like the 70-200, or am I better off leaving it as a backup. Is it necessary to carry two cameras? The shot list they gave me asks for more specific shots of guests taking part in certain things and for those I will definitely use the 24-70.
What about for when speakers are presenting? Is it better to stand from afar and shoot with the 70-200 and high iso or use my 24-70 w ocf and kind of stand in front of the crowd (not sure how the banquet will be set up so I dont know how appropriate that will be). I dont think it will be necessary to have speedlights around the room as this banquet hall tends to be well lit.
what do you guys think? any opinions are appreciated. i'm leaning more towards one camera and switching lenses when necessary
