    I started out shooting with a Canon 300D and currently have a 30D. However, my fiancee and sister both shoot Pentax. I am starting to do wedding photography and my fiancee let's me borrow her Pentax ist*DL as my backup camera just in case my 30D fails on me. I've gotten pretty used to using the Pentax in my spare time and like some things about it and my fiancee refuses to switch over to Canon as she's invested into glass for hers, but likes using my Canon. Does anyone else have two camera brands they switch between? Or am I the crazy one that's going to have to get her to give up the Pentax or me to give up the Canon.

    I use two brands, Nikon and Canon... but not really :)

    I use Nikon DSLR's and Canon P&S's & video cameras.

    I use Canon EOS and a Canon AE-1P, which aren't interchangeable. Basically the same sorta thing.

    I mainly use 3 Nikons. I also shoot with a Calumet 4x5 and a Yashica 2 1/4 TLR.

    Canons and Nikons here... Mostly Canon but I will use my boyfriend's Nikons as back ups in a pinch. ;)

    I have a number of systems but rarely plan on using more than 1 in a single outing. For a wedding, I'd probably find it annoying using a different non-compatible camera as a backup. I'd start saving for a 20D or even a 40D if wedding photography is going to be your future path.
