    Good thread.

    I photographs weddings (if I really have to) I also video them with cameras at fixed points, I give the video to them free as an added extra.

    One fortunate guy! Luckily I didn't bin this monster of a cam and John is almost on his way again with a new lens.

    This is right on the money, I have shot several one cam weddings and edited a short 20-30 minute film which works well. The fact that you dont have loads of experience means you may struggle to think about editing in camera and this is why a two cam is an absolute must when starting out.

    Not wishing to belittle anyone else's suggestions but I shot with one camera only for the first 5 or 6 years, including incidentally one of those monster KY17/BR-ES411 combos. It did teach me to go out prepared, to plan properly, be selective in what I shot and be quick in my head and quick on my feet. However nowadays I go armed with a main JVCHM700 (+ a spare as back-up or second camera), threes Sony handycams for placing in strategic positions, a GoPro and a GH2 plus three Sennheiser EW100 radio mic kits and an array of LED lights, cables, adaptors and who knows what. I often think that as I've increased my armoury I've lessened my sharpness on the day as I can always feel that I've got plenty to rely on to get me out of the ship if anything goes wrong. I must admit that my stress levels on the day are much less but editing has become more laborious albeit more satisfying as I have more options. However I don't detect any greater or lesser amounts of enjoyment from the customers; they are aware of very little of the nuts and bolts or tools used. In fact the last couple saw their DVD they were so surprised to see that I had shots from not only the position I was in but also from the other side, the balcony at the side and directly from the back of the room as well as a spectacular ultra-wide GoPro shot as she walk down the aisle and again when they walked out. They hadn't even noticed that there were four cameras during the dancing, one at each corner of the dance floor.

    Incidentally during the years when I shot with a single camera I had many people say that I must have shot with more than one; I'm sure that many know the shooting/editing tricks to pull that off. Also I never had any camera breakdowns until I started carrying a spare, which was shear luck I guess. After that I've had viewfinders snap off (twice), camera fall from a tall tripod and snap the lens coupling, XLR plugs snap and lock into the camera socket, numerous times batteries just died during recording and twice a camera has just quite for no apparent reason, and quite a few more incidents which I'd rather not think about.
