Multi Gears

I used to carry several cameras/lenses for many reasons; my main 'justification' is each of them has different characters.

Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur
Nikon D100. Sigma 11mm f/13 0.6s ISO 1000

I do use app filters to enhance/alter the photo's mood, but I find it can't beat the original photo created by the camera itself.  Some may disagree, but I appreciate the camera's characteristic, and think my cameras tend to tell the story differently.

Nikon D100. Holga 60mm f/8 1/180 ISO 1000

Point the camera to the same direction, but a wide glass and a cheap plastic lens give a total different perspective.  

But lately I find the weight of several cameras and lenses is taxing to lug around, and not really helpful to my aging back...  Perhaps the days of multi-gears (big camera bag and straps and belts, and stuff) are over for me.  I should maybe stick to 1 camera with 1 lens based on the photo locations, and enjoy more in shooting and editing my photos, instead of nursing my backache after each outing ;)
