    This large-diaphragm condenser mic from M-Audio is an affordable way to record great studio voiceovers, vocals, or other projects. The microphone features low-noise Class A electronics and an evaporated-gold diaphragm just over one inch, for faithful reproduction of the human voice.

    This microphone requires 48v phantom power.

  2. Rokinon 85mm T/1.5 Cine Prime Lens

    Rokinon adapted their prime full-frame photo lenses for video shooters and created a revolution in affordable cinema optics.  Optically, this EF 85mm T/1.5 is the same lens at their 85mm f/1.4, but with a de-clicked aperture and teeth on the focus ring to accept any standard follow focus. This is the best-reviewed of all their cine primes, and the fastest long lens in our inventory.  Wide open, we think it holds its own against the Canon CN-E 85mm, which is incredible at this price point.

    This is our new go-to lens for interviews, and indispensable for events in low light. Even photo shooters can get some great images out of it, although if you prefer an autofocus prime, look at the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8.

  3. Sony Headphones MDR-7506

    The Sony MDR-7506 headphones are among the most popular for use on film and video sets, due to their professional audio quality, comfortable fit, and closed-ear design.  They are a great field monitor for an audio recorder or camera with 1/8″ or 1/4″ stereo output.

    If you’d like to use more than one set of headphones, rent our headphone distribution amplifier to connect them all to one audio source.

  4. Canon 50mm f/1.4 EF Prime Lens

    Canon EF 50mm 1-4

    Canon has it figured out with the 50mm f/1.4.  This all-purpose 50mm fixed lens is great for all kinds of shooting, including interiors and low light.  It’s very flattering as an interview or portrait lens, especially when mounted on a crop factor camera.

    We love this Canon 50mm at f/1.8 and beyond for tack-sharp focus. Many photographers will claim it even outperforms the venerable Canon 50mm f/1.2L at that aperture. It has 58mm front threads, like most of the Canon primes in this class.

    Need a full DSLR kit on a budget? Our Canon T3i Budget Filmmaker Kit includes: A Canon T3i camera, 64GB of storage, a battery grip, four batteries, a Sigma 24-60mm f/2.8 lens or 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens, Canon’s 55-250mm f/4-5.6 zoom lens, Canon’s 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, and your choice of video tripod or shoulder mount.

    We believe that everyone should have access to the tools to make great video.  This kit is our most popular kit with weekend filmmakers, whether they are shooting 48 hour film projects or music videos.  Like many video DSLRs, it’s great for anything with short takes (under 12 minutes).  If your project needs audio, you’ll want to rent a field sound recording kit.

  6. Red Epic Dragon Camera Package

    Comments Off on Red Epic Dragon Camera Package
    red-epic-dragon-rental-milwaukee

    We recently upgraded our RED Epic with a Dragon sensor, giving you more latitude and higher, 6K resolution.  The Red Epic Dragon rental package includes the Red Epic brain (capable of capturing up to 100 frames per second at 6K resolution or 240 fps in 1080p HD) and just about everything else you need to get started shooting.

    Other rental shops may have the best price on individual components, but once you put your rental kit together, we guarantee ours is the best value out there!   Batteries, media, matte box, filters, follow focus, plates, rails, clamps, and cables are all included.  Just add lenses, a tripod, and an AC, and you’re good to go.

    Since we’re a small shop, we can’t rent the items a la carte, but we’re sure we have the best price in Milwaukee or Chicago for the complete Red Epic Dragon camera kit.  And speaking of carts, we offer a large camera cart with mitchell mount for $95/day, perfect for any RED Epic rental.
