Sometimes multiple cameras isn’t just to look cool
Ever see a camera guy sweep in front of you with 17 devices strapped to him like some kind of nerdy cross between a GI Joe and that kid from the Goonies? Apparently, it can actually be necessary to have an extra camera body or two. Why? For starters, if one breaks (which it might, because: concert), then you have a backup.
