Usually i shoot with two at a time and its good to have the others as spares - i don't always carry them all with me but on a long term project the others are always close at hand just in case something breaks down. Dust and high humidity and 10-30 year old cameras can be a risk so i'd rather have the extra weight than have to make another trip.

It is very simple- I spend six weeks a year in rural Africa. The nearest camera shop is in Jo'burg, usually more than 2000 km and two days journey away. If there is a post-office around they will think Fedex is some kind of fastfood....Remember these are places where a local bank refused to cash my Amex cheque because it hadn't "specimen" printed over it in red, like the one in their book. So what am I going to do if a solitary body breaks down??? I already had to cobble two Leica R bodies together once to end up with one working camera....

Yes, that's always best.

(Thanks for being a good sport about this. After posting I worried that you might not appreciate the humour.)

This reminds me of highschool when my buddy used to get all the chicks! I was just beginning to get over that too. This'll set me back.

But cuddly! I'm on Atkin's though to reduce the cuddly factor somewhat. 20lbs so far. I'm feeling better about my body too. I'm thinking of doing some nude self-portraits, what do you all think?
