:lol:

ha! me too. I have the cable release attachment and everything :p

...but really I guess I would say my 40D, even though it shares the role of primary with the 50D depending which lens is already mounted on which camera.

SD780 IS. It's also my only camera when I don't want to carry the 5D2 and lenses. The SD780 takes good photos and has HD video, not bad for a P&S ;)

40D helps the 5D II along, but not exactly a backup. Secondary camera, but with a different lens, a fully functioning camera (it takes the place of my 10D, which I loved dearly). Elan IIe with some film backs up those (hope to never need that). P&S Canon ordered soon as backup to those.


Gear: 5DII, 40D, 24-105 f4L, 100-400L; 24-70 f2.8L, 70-200 f4 IS L, 17-40 f4 L, 50 f1.4, 550 EX (& a 10D w/ a broken shudder & an Elan IIe that still works)

The backup is another 5D Classic - same as the first.

Indentical bodies improves ease of troubleshooting, identical control layout and familiarity, uniform WB and focusing characteristics. When I only had the first 5D is was backed by a film Hasselblad - a cumbersome prospect in the event of a disaster, but critical nonetheless in case the primary failed. The important thing WAS to have the second camera at the wedding.

Why do you ask Hieuy?


Well i was thinking about purchasing a Back up camera for my new one cause i just recently switched to Canon from nikon. and i was just thinking i could use a back up camera just incase or if my Fiance wants to take pics while im on a shoot or just around then she'll have one too but its just a thought to see whats out there...and whats worth getting or not getting

400D to my 50D. Probably sell the 400D now - have not switched it on since the 50D arrived.

A 20D backs up my 50D, but I also have an EOS 3 film body if I'm really desperate!
