  1. Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM Lens

    Comments Off on Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM Lens

    The Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens is a professional-level telephoto lens. It features image stabilization, very fast USM focusing, and outstanding imaging performance.

    This long lens is often the best choice for outdoors: particularly sports, wildlife, weddings and other events. It is also an amazing portrait lens, creating extreme subject-background separation and telephoto compression. It is a popular choice for both photo and video shooters.  If you need an even longer lens, we suggest renting it with our Canon 1.4x telephoto extender.

    The EF mount fits every Canon DSLR ever made, and can be mounted on most mirrorless cameras with an adapter. At three pounds, it’s on the heavier side, but a tripod foot is included with the lens rental. Like many Canon L-series and telephoto lenses, It has 77mm front threads. The lens extends significantly when zoomed, making it a poor choice for matte boxes.

  2. Metabones PL-E Mount Cine Adapter

    Comments Off on Metabones PL-E Mount Cine Adapter

    The Metabones PL to E Mount Adapter will connect any PL cinema lens to any Sony E mount camera. The adapter has no electronic contacts, and all lens features must be controlled manually. The adapter will work with full frame as well as Super 35mm lenses, but you should confirm that your lenses’ imaging circle will cover your camera’s sensor.

    This adapter pairs very well with our Anamorphic Lens Set and Sony FS7.

  3. Canon Speedlite 580EX

    Comments Off on Canon Speedlite 580EX

    This Canon Speedlite 580EX flash works with all Canon EOS cameras.  It supports E-TTL, high speed sync, and six automatic zoom positions. It can also be set to second-curtain sync, if your camera supports it. It has a guide number of 190. It weighs just under 10 ounces, making it a great portable flash.

    While after-market flashes often work very well on Canon cameras, most don’t support advanced features. This speedlight is the most affordable way to get high speed sync and second curtain sync in a camera-mounted flash.

    We include 4 rechargeable AA batteries and a mounting shoe with each speedlite rental.
