Thread: Rental Inquiry

    Rental Inquiry

    I am thinking about looking into renting a camera body for December so I can send my camera in to Canon to be calibrated and checked up since I dropped it. Thought I am afraid of the price tag to rent for that long. But I still want to look into it. What are the different companies you ladies have rented from? My local store would be way too expensive, but I am curious about the places that ship them out to you!

    TIA!

    I was afraid to look at this post Kim... you left out a "t" in the thread title!

    I have only rented a lens for the weekend once and I did it in person on a trip to CA. So I'm not much help. But try Samy's Camera. I looked briefly and it looks pretty expensive... maybe wait until after the December Daily project?

    Giggling here, Kim, because I had a sinking feeling when I read your title and thought there was kidney trouble at your house. So glad it's camera rental and not renal failure!

    I've never rented a camera or lens, so I don't have any advice for you. There are some, however, who have rented lenses.

    I laughed, too! I thought you were having kidney troubles! I have never rented a body but I did rent a lens from lensrentals.com and their prices were competitive and they were extremely easy to work with.

    I have also rented from LensRentals.com and was very pleased. The whole process was very simple.

    I checked out lens rentals last night!! Their prices are better than my local store!! However, renting a body for a few weeks adds up! I will keep it in mind though! Thanks ladies!
