I would also consider doing tethered shots, especially the important ones. They do it in the studios, so why not outside? Get yourself a longish cable and tether it between your camera and laptop. A 14/17" screen is far better than a 3" screen at the back of your camera. Any problem you see, you can take the shot again right away. I have never seen a tog do this at a wedding, why, I do not know, as it is used so much in studios

What about the younger element? Do only TOGs do wedding pictures?

That could be very time consuming as the wedding party are trying to escape to the reception bar asap, it's also much more stuff to consider & carry about, wouldn't be me.

Canon 1Ds mk3
Canon 5D mk2
Leica M8 with 40mm, 21mm and a 90mm lenses
Canon EF 17-40mm f4 zoom
Canon EF 24-105 f4 zoom (backup)
Canon EF 24-70 f2.8 zoom
Canon EF 50mm f2.5 macro
Canon EF 70-200 f2.8 zoom
2 Canon 580 EZ II's one is a backup
Quantum Trio great for fill in outside and never misses a beat, crap for bounce flash on camera inside, doesn't work unless you use bare bulb with a small white card behind the bulb facing forward.
2 Quantum T5d-R's
1 Quantum turbo 3 battery pack
2 Quantum turbo 2's battery packs
Sekonic L608 hand held light meter
2 stands and a couple of brolly soft boxes
17" MacBook Pro

Some of the kit is locked in the car in a couple of Autosafe strong boxes until required.
I use the 1Ds most of the time, with a couple of lenses, all depends on the venue. The M8 is used for reportage style shots that I'm being increasingly asked for. I hired a Fuji X1-Pro and used that at a wedding last Saturday but it just doesn't cut it for me. I like the files it produces but the handling is awful. I found I kept switching on macro and the Q menu by accident, AF takes several attempts in low light.

I was asking myself that very same question just a few weeks ago.

Realised I could probably get away with a Fuji x100 for 80% - 90% of the shots most of the time.

TOG is an abbreviation which used to be used by Terry Wogan to describe the male listeners to his radio show. Terry's Old Geezers. Grin

I'm not surprised with all that kit! An acquaintance of mine does weddings with a Canon 7D and two lenses (not quite sure but I think they are the 24-105L and a 50/f1.4) and a flash. He's thinking of switching over to the Olympus OM-D for this work... no doubt he will continue to take just a couple of lenses.

Must confess that, when I first looked in on this forum, the use of the term "TOG" confused me as well. I had never heard it uses as an abbrieviation for "photographer" before. To me, also, it was an old geezer as popularised by Wogan.

Ahh... understand now (I didn't listen to Mr Wogan & had not heard of it in that context!)
