This Is What it Takes to Shoot Royal Love

In case you weren't aware, two very rich and good looking people in England just got married, and everyone in the world went into a frenzy about their hats and hair and shoes. So photos were key! Here's the gear.

This is the Reuters photo team's Super Royal Wedding World Bonanza 2011™ arsenal. Some serious stuff: "10 cameras and a vast array of glass from 800 and 600mm lenses down to a 15mm fish eye and an even wider lens on a Go-Pro action camera. Conservatively this is 50kg (110 pounds) of kit each," notes Reuters photog Phil Noble. He and partner Kai Pfaffenbach will be split all of that hardware, meaning they each schlepped around 110 pounds of camera power each. Anything for love! [Reuters via PetaPixel]
