Why Does Will Crockett Use 2 Different Camera Bodies?

We love great questions from our viewers and here’s a terrific one.  This viewer saw two of my recent vlog posts and noticed they kinda contradict each other?  In one, I say, “the only real backup body is an exact duplicate of the primary camera” and in other videos you see me shooting jobs using a GH3 and a Fuji XPro1 with no backups in sight.  Uhmmmmm….  Have I been busted?  Naaah, there’s a good reason for it.  Watch this video and see.

[NOTE: Will is very careful to not appear extravagant or extreme in his videos.  He does have a lot of gear and he is reluctant to show it all in a single pile because he thinks it's the wrong message.  It actually bothers him to no end when photographers "brag" on camera about how much gear they have so he avoids it himself and discourages the Hybrid Heroes from doing it as well.  -Ed.]

About the Author:

Will Crockett, commercial hybrid photographer, photo technology developer, and webTV personality is focused on learning how to master hybrid imaging. The skillful blend of photo+video+audio is clearly the future of photography, but how do we shoot and shape and share and sell these hybrid "eProducts"? Dunno, but with Will Crockett as the technical genius and unstoppable force behind this transition from shooting still photos into creating pictures with depth and dimension we will surely figure it out! : ) Will is an open, honest, bright guy that shares what he learns here on this website about hybrid, eProducts, mirrorless cameras, and all the wonderful software tools that allow us to make better, smarter images for share or the sell. For years, non-pro photographers and pros alike have seen Will's videos, gone to his fun live events, and learned how to be a smarter photographer. Take a look at Will's current (and classic) images at, his consulting work for clients big and small at, and the great info on hybrid eProducts and mirrorless cameras on, and of course his premium videos at Will is credited with the construction of the Lumix Luminary talent team, and the Fujifilm Elite Talent team, and is our "coach" of the Hybrid Heroes.

    Wiiiiiiiiillll! Help. You mention when you want detailed video, you use the X-E1? I’m luck my video looks any better than my old VHS camcorder. What’s the deal? I didn’t buy it for video but it’s horrible compared to anything out there. How do you get it looking so good then?
