Rent a Hasselblad and learn to love medium format! You’ll have a hard time ever going back to full frame 35mm. The H4D-50 offers the 50mp resolution of the Pentax 645z and Fujifilm GFX 50s, except it has a larger sensor so is closer to “true” medium format than the crops of the other two cameras. Also, we’re offering it at a smoking discounted deal to help photographers who are used to shooting DSLR step into the full frame world.
The Nikon D850 might be the best camera of 2017. We love the D850 for it’s pure speed and high pixel count as well as nearly every pro feature you could imagine on a DSLR. And Nikon implementing 4k full frame video on the D850 is basically a slap in the face to Canon’s 5D mkIV. Who doesn’t like a good slug fest? We sure do… rent the Nikon D850 when you really want to rub it in the face of your Canon shooting fanboy friends!
Canon’s C200 is a head to head Red Raven fighter… FINALLY. Similar specs, sensor, mount, cheaper memory, cheaper batteries and easier ergonomics make the Canon C200 a seriously competitive cinema camera. Some people would even say the Canon C200 is the FIRST seriously competitive cinema camera by Canon… Not us though, of course.
The Fujifilm X-T2 is hands down one of the most interesting cameras we’ve gotten in the last few years. The reason for this is the X-Trans sensor, which makes for some amazingly dynamic images. This really is something that you need to see in person, or at least look at head to head comparisons of with other cameras. Or maybe you know all this already and you’re just ready to rent the Fujifilm X-T2 and see for yourself in person.
The Sigma 18-35 T2 Cine Zoom lens is based on the ART series 18-35. How do you make a good cine zoom? Start with the zoom that won nearly every lens award the year it came out and blew people away by being sharper than most prime lenses in its range. And now the T2 Cine Zoom version of the Sigma 18-35mm gives filmmakers an extremely low cost alternative that’s faster and wider than most cine zooms out there for a fraction of the price. Needless to say, we’re impressed.
Rent the Panasonic GH5 for its huge bit rate, cinematic video or great slow motion. Or rent it because it just looks mean. Either way, it’ll play happily with Canon lenses via a Metabones Speedbooster which will give it a Super35 field of view and extra stop of light!
The Sigma 85mm Art lens is… possibly the best lens ever made. No, seriously, at the time of writing, it scored…
THE HIGHEST SCORE DxOMARK HAS EVER SCORED FOR A LENS!
The downside to shooting on this is that there are no excuses for not getting a staggeringly sharp image. So yes, by all means, rent the Sigma 85mm Art lens and just let yourself be spoiled forever.
The Sony A7r mkIII and Nikon D850 basically tied for camera of the year last year. But only one can run Canon, Nikon and Sony glass, and if you’re still reading this, you have a pretty good idea of which one you want! Rock the A7r III… for it is good! (though the A7s mk3 isn’t out yet at the time I write this!)
So you’re a super low budget indie filmmaker and you need an amazing deal? This is it! Provide your own monitor, own Canon EF lenses and own batteries and we’ll give you an Arri Alexa EV Classic with SxS cards for the price of renting 2 Canon 5DmkIV cameras!
Note, if you need a monitor and batteries, just rent the ready to shoot kit. It includes all those plus 2x 128gb SxS cards – nearly a $295 value for only $150 more.
The Alexa EV probably has more Oscars than any other digital camera… 5 straight wins for Best Cinematography were filmed on it (the streak was broken by La La Land, shot on film, fyi). Yes, it’s 2.8k not 8k like our Epic-W but that seemed to be good enough for The Revenant, Birdman, Life Of Pi, Argo and Gravity to take home a trophy.
Ours has the 120fps license. It can be paired with our Odessey 7Q+ for Arriraw . It has colour so beautiful we will guarantee you will get into Cannes* (*not an actual guarantee).
This is available in native Canon EF mount for use with our CP2, Sigma Cine, Canon L, Rokinon, and weird old vintage lenses. It’s also available in PL mount of course. Also, we upgraded the EVF from the original one to the killer SmallHD 502 Sidefinder!
Want a TB of storage for your Blackmagic Ursa Mini? The CFast to SSD drive adapter and included 1 TB high speed Sandisk SSD that’s Blackmagic approved at all recording up to 4k-60p 3-1 full sensor or 4k-30 uncompressed. Compared to the cost of CFast cards, this is a bargain for low cost storage.
