Camera & lens rentals

Let’s say you are getting ready to take the African Safari of your dreams. Naturally, you’ll want to make sure you have a great camera and lens to capture all that spectacular scenery. You don’t want to blow your budget before even checking your luggage, however.

Here’s a suggestion -- try renting the equipment rather than purchasing it. That’s the advice I gave to two clients this weekend. Both were bound for exotic vacations. Neither offered to take their instructor. (Sigh.)

Renting camera equipment is a great option for vacation or a freelance assignment -- especially if don’t really need to own it. 

 

BorrowLenses.com

Probably the best known and most popular online option. They are well stocked. You can't go wrong with them. - Lyn

“We are one of the largest photography gear and lens rental stores in the US, and we will do everything we can to make your rental experience go as smoothly as possible. We are photographers ourselves and want nothing more than make sure you have the gear you need, when you need it. We serve everyone from budding amateurs to seasoned professionals. The next time you need gear for a special event, or just want to try before you buy, try our services.”

 

This one is my personal favorite. I use them almost exclusively now. - Lyn

"We’re a family-run business of used-to-be semi-pro photographers. Roger Cicala, the founder and CEO, was located in a mid-sized city far from the major camera stores. There was nowhere to rent a top quality lens locally (actually nowhere locally to even buy a good quality lens). He couldn’t find a mail order rental house that met his simple needs: get me the equipment I want, when I want it, in great condition and at a fair price. Since no one else was doing that, he decided he should and started LensRentals as a “Photographers Co-op” in June of 2006 with about 30 lenses.

Lensrentals.com has grown from startup to the largest photographic equipment renter in the U. S. We’re convinced we accomplished that in a very simple way: by offering better selection and customer service than anyone else."
