Cameras & Accessories

  1. Sony A7s II Mirrorless Camera


    a7s-rental

    The Sony A7s II is a combination still and video camera, offering 4K internal video recording as well as 12.2 MP still photo shooting. The A7s II is the latest addition to the Sony Alpha series. Like its predecessor, the Sony A7s, this camera is a low light monster, allowing exposures where other cameras simply can’t.  Max ISO goes all the way up to 409,600, with a native ISO of 3200. This camera is the ideal choice for low-light documentary-style work.

    The most notable improvement over the Sony A7s is the added in-camera 5-axis image stabilization. Now every lens is a stabilized lens, letting you shoot handheld photos and video with reduced motion blur and smoother camera moves.

    The camera accepts any E-mount lenses (also called NEX), as well as nearly any DSLR lens with the use of an adapter. We suggest lenses offering full-frame coverage, but crop-factor lenses will function in crop mode. We would be happy to help you choose the best lenses for your rental.

    We include the Sony Alpha A7s II body, two batteries, a 32GB SD card, and a charger. You’ll need to add a lens to be ready to shoot.

  2. Sony PXW-FS7 4K Camera Kit


    sony-fs7

    The Sony FS7 features a Super 35-sized sensor, 4K internal recording, and codecs including XAVC-I at 113 Mbps, to match Sony’s flagship F55. Capture 14 stops of dynamic range in Slog3, or choose a picture style to go direct to broadcast. 10-bit 4:2:2 in DCI-4K, QHD, and 1080p HD resolutions without bulky recorders means shooting for the colorist is easy. If you prefer to shoot in ProRes 1080p, just add the optional FS7 extension unit.

    The Sony E-mount on the PXW-FS7 can be adapted to fit EF and PL lenses, and a behind-the-lens ND filter means no more clumsy filter changes. The rental includes an electronic viewfinder/display and adjustable hand grip. The versatility makes the FS7 equally at home in cinema and broadcast applications.

    The FS7 camera supports UHD framerates up to 60p, as well as 1080p at 180 fps, all continuous and in-camera.  Sony rates native ISO at 2000, and low-light performance is superb, especially when compared with other 4K cameras.

    While Sony continues to offer the FS700, the FS7 offers multiple improvements in functionality, higher-quality recording formats, and a more ergonomic layout.  The FS7 is a well-matched camera to an F5 or F55, and also works well on a set with an FS700 or even an A7s backing it up.  This is Sony’s answer to the Canon C300, and it would appear the FS7 wins in every category worth measuring.This FS7 camera kit includes everything you need to get started shooting in 4K at high speed, just add lenses.

  3. GoPro Omni 360 Camera


    gopro-omni

    The GoPro Omni 360° camera rental shoots immersive 360 by 360 video with an effective resolution over 8K. Based around the GoPro Hero 4 Black, the GoPro Omni rig controls all six cameras from one interface, making setup fast and easy. All the cameras are genlocked, so stitching is sub-frame accurate. Power can be supplied by a central battery, taking the hassle out of replacing multiple batteries in a single rig. When compared to GoPro’s Odyssey 360 camera, the Omni is easier to manage and can shoot 360 in all directions, not just horizontally.
