  1. Canon 300mm f/4L IS telephoto lens

    The Canon 300mm f/4L IS telephoto lens is an incredible lens for sports, wildlife, and outdoor portraiture. The extremely long telephoto is an EF mount, and will work with both full frame and crop factor cameras.

    The lens, while not pocket-sized, is a pretty manageable size and weight when compared to other professional lenses in this focal range.  It close focuses better than any 300mm lens in Canon’s lineup. This makes it possibly the best lens ever made for faux-macro work like dragonflies, small mammals, and other tiny, skittish things.

    The built-in image stabilization makes a huge difference for photo and video on a lens this long. A retractable hood is built-in.The lens is exceptionally sharp even wide open, and backgrounds fall off to a beautiful bokeh. It can be fitted with our 1.4x teleconverter to function as a 420mm f/5.6 lens. Like many L-series Canon lenses, it accepts 77mm front filters.

  3. Powered PA Speakers 400 watts

    800w-speaker-set

    These 2 x 200 watt powered PA speakers are ideal for small indoor venues, and can also be used as stage monitors. If you’re looking to present to a group of under 60 indoors, this is a great kit that just needs a microphone. For events in larger spaces, or where you’ll be entertaining with music, we suggest something more powerful.

    Each amplified speaker has a line in (XLR or RCA) and mic in (XLR or 1/4″ phono), as well as a line out (1/4″ phono). We include two speakers, two stands, a 25′ XLR cable, and a 1/4″ to XLR cable to connect the speakers together. If you’ll be connecting more than one source (microphone, computer, etc.), you’ll need to rent a mixer, as well.

    The Rokinon (or Samyang) 24mm T1.5 is a fast prime lens with cinema gears for Canon EF and EF-S mounts.  The lens is fully manual, with focus and declicked aperture controls on the barrel. The lens is wide without being extreme, covering a field of view of approximately 74 degrees horizontally on full-frame cameras.

    This lens matches well with the other prime Rokinon cine lens rentals we offer. It accepts 77mm front filters.

    The Canon 35mm f/2.0 IS USM EF prime photo lens is the updated version of Canon’s 35mm f/2.0 lens, with improved resolution and image stabilization added. This lens works with both full-frame and crop-factor cameras, which includes every DSLR Canon has ever made.

    35mm is a useful, slightly wide lens on a full-frame camera like a Canon 5D, and a “normal” lens on an APS-C sized crop factor camera. The image stabilization and high speed make it very useful indoors, for shooting photo as well as video.

    The lens has 67mm front threads.

    make-moneyThe best part about a career in film, video, or television production isn’t the pay. We have a great job that makes other people jealous. Many of us get to travel, work with celebrities, and have our work seen by thousands or even millions. We get to express our creativity, and when we’re done, the things we’ve worked on can make an audience feel something. That’s a perk that doesn’t come with every job. (more…)
