    I count 5 rigs. The Canon rigs but with Nikon straps is a nice touch. Lens hoods for those big suckers are several hundred dollars each. That accounts for the duct tape.

    I kind of look like that when I shoot sports, but with Nikon bodies and Canon straps. :lol: Not really, I use Nikon straps.

    That's for balance, otherwise he'd fall over.

    That's about $10,000 worth behind him attached to the monopod across his shoulder. I'd use the chicken wing technique too. :lol:

    Yeah seen it before, some have said that the picture was staged by several photographers as sort of a joke.

    wow even if staged. I did see a photographer at San Patrignano, Italy horse show that had three cameras on him and he looked kinda goofy. He didn't have that huge one though.

    I will often carry 3 bodies (never more) when shooting a College football game. One is on the 400 f2.8, one with the 70-200 f2.8 and one usually used before and after the game with a 24-70 f2.8. I usually have at least one 580 EX with me as well.
