I have 4 DSLRs currently - 1D4, 5D2, 7D, 50D.

In a year or 2 as I do less action photography, I expect to move to a 5D4 and a M5 (or something similar).

dms


1d4, 7d, 5d2, 50d, and a growing list of L lens and lighting

A better question is...of those that you have, could you use them all in manual mode and cough out a good image?

cause it's impossible to get a good image unless you use manual mode...:rolleyes:

Three. I even tried to use all three at once one time. One had a 70-200 f2.8, another a 24-70 2.8 II, and the third with a Sanyang 8mm fisheye. That didn't last long though. Even using a dual harness, that is just too much weight on the neck. :-(

5D3 and 7D2 as far as DSLR's go. But I also have 3 non-digital bodies: Canon AE-1 (still love that thing), a Minolta Maxxum 5000i and a Maxxum 5.

Only have 2 at the moment, D610 and D800e...next year once the replacements finally come out I'll probably sell them both and upgrade (probably a D750 and whatever the 800/810 replacement is) and maybe get a D500. That'll solve all needs (general all-rounder, sports/hi-fps body, and high-mp/studio body). And yes, I can shoot all in manual mode (technically I've never used any mode other than manual since my D50 about 8 years ago), although I should probably familiarize myself with some of the others to be safe.

I know this is a fun question but ask others why they have multiple bodies. Also software is another question too....why???

Load Google Nik software for free!!! and play with silver efex pro 2. The film simulation on that Lightroom addon can tweak your files into a different character in Black/white.

I have 3 mirrored digital bodies and 2 mirrorless. Canon fulll frames for my workhorse and due to familiarity. 80D is great for 1080vid and it produces great files from a Canon crop sensor. Fuji for more film like files straight out of camera.

I've put my extremely fun 80D to a test. Hit it with a simple lightroom addon called Silver efex Pro and it simulates a contrasty look of a Leica and other film "flavours" with software slidebars. However I'm using a Canon :)

I use a fuji body for another "fun" camera that delivers great files.

Well, hey, people do "load up"! :)

I ended up with three DSLRs -- a 30D, then a 5D "Classic", and finally grabbed a 1D3 for things like sports and wildlife. All three have served well, but a few years ago I had a financial melt-down and sold my 1D3 and some of my best lenses, but I kept the 5DC and the 30D.

Something funny, though -- I stopped in an electronics "thrift" store maybe 3 years ago, and spotted a little HP "compact" camera in a box with some other stuff. I picked it up and was checking it out, and the shop manager said "Hey, it works, and I'll sell it to you for $20!" and I laughed and put it back in the box, and he said "Hey, I'll make it $10!", and I laughed, and he said "You can have it for $5!!!". Well, who could turn that down? I took it and it has served well, a fun "walk-around" camera!

SL1, 7D, 7D II, 6D, 5D Mk III

Might covert the 7D to IR since it gets no use now.

Interesting that the majority of those say "one" are shooting 5D3 :)

I just gave away my barely used SL1 to my nephew,.

That leaves me with 6.

One is retired, 1D MkII, can't sell for the low price, but will give away some day.

That leaves the three I shoot with often; 5D4, 7D2 and 1D4.

and my two IR cameras, an old Xti that I love the IR conversion on, and a 5D2 which offers better detail and noise than the Xti, but the conversion is not as good for some aspects of IR.

Or any paid work where you can't just say "oh well" if your camera suddenly malfunctions.
