Update on 8/15/2013: I am using Canon system for weddings now. Canon’s new 5D Mark III is simply one of the best all-around professional cameras for weddings by now. My current line up of cameras:
Two Canon 5D Mark IIIs, one Canon 5D Mark II as backup. Professional lens include 35mm 1.4 L, 85mm 1.2 L II, 24-70mm 2.8 LII, 16-35mm F2.8 L, 100mm F2.8 Macro L, 50mm 1.2L II, etc.
Update on 1/1/2012: I am currently using two Nikon D700 and one Nikon D7000 as a backup for wedding and events. With three cameras at hand, I can take photos efficiently and make sure that I can take care of clients the best. There is also plan to add one Nikon D800 and two Canon 5D Mark III to the studio. I will update this post once the cameras are in.
As a wedding photographer, I need to use the best gear possible. I have no bias against other photo equipment manufacturers. Nikon makes the most reliable professional cameras that can deliver the job at the critical moments. The equipements are expensive but they are worth the investment. Currently, I use D700 and D300 at the same time for wedding photography service. I also use different lens to capture the wedding events from different angles and to insure the quality of the images.
Nikon D700 is a full-frame professional camera that provides 12.1MP resolution. Its superb 51-point auto-focus ability and low-light performance also beat my expectations. I enjoy low-light in-door shooting a lot with this pet. The lens that I use most with this camera is Nikon 24-70mm F2.8, simply the best zoom lens in the market. It focus super fast and provides razor-sharp images.
Nikon D300 is a professional DX format camera that can give me a longer reach or a wider range whenever I need it. It can be used with either Nikon 12-24mm or 10.5mm fish-eye lens for a wide-angle effect. It can also be used with Nikon 85mm F1.4 or Nikon 105mm F2.8 or Nikon 70-200mm F2.8 VR lens for the long range.
