Photography Equipment Backup Plan

Here is my photography essentials backup plan.

It’s always a good idea to have a backup for your essential equipment.

You never know when a “glitch” could stop you in your tracks.

In the event of a mechanical failure or even a accidental drop, you should have a fall back plan.

I currently have 3 backup options with varying options.

3. A budget version of my L series package

  • Canon 500d + four batteries and battery grip
  • Sandisk Memory cards 8GB x2
  • 50mm Helios Prime
  • 100mm Macro
  • Sigma 24 70 2.8
  • Flash and spare batteries

2. The second set

  • Canon 550d + four batteries and Battery Grip
  • Sandisk Memory cards 8GB x3
  • 50mm 1.8 mk II
  • canon 24 70 2.8
  • 35mm Prime
  • Flash and spare AA batteries

1. The first set

  • Canon 5d MK2 + 4 Batteries
  • 50mm 1.4
  • 100mm Macro L
  • Canon 70 200 2.8is
  • Flash and spare batteries

I have found myself in a few of situation where my backup equipment has come into play.  This will allow you to seamlessly pick up where you left off, it’s what sets aside the professionals from enthusiasts.
