  2. Sony PXW-FX9 4K Camera Kit


    The Sony PXW-FX9 camera features a full frame sensor, 4K internal recording, and dual native ISO. The back-illuminated full-frame 6K CMOS sensor uses Sony’s Exmor R technology for improved sensitivity and reduced noise. Compared to a 4K Super 35­mm sensor, the FX9’s 6K sensor has over twice the surface area, providing a wider angle of view, making it easier to gain a shallower depth of field. You can also shoot with Super 35­mm lenses without compromise, capturing at 4K in super 35 mm with all the benefits of this advanced imaging sensor.

    The Sony E-mount on the PXW-FX9 can be adapted to fit EF and PL lenses, and Sony’s patented variable ND makes cinematic documentary style shooting easier than ever before. The rental includes an electronic viewfinder/display, top handle, and adjustable control handle.

    The FX9 camcorder pairs naturally with Sony’s lineup of cameras, all shooting in S-Log 3. The FX9 is most frequently rented alongside the Sony FS7 and A7s III as B cameras.

  9. GoPro Omni 360 Camera


    gopro-omni

    The GoPro Omni 360° camera rental shoots immersive 360 by 360 (fully spherical) 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 easy. All the cameras are sub-frame synced, so stitching is fast and accurate. Power is supplied centrally, 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.

    This rig does not provide all-weather protection, and is only appropriate for dry locations. It mounts using a standard 1/4″-20 thread, we suggest using something small to minimize visibility.

    If you rent the GoPro Omni 360 camera for more than one day, we’ll include free shipping to the lower 48 both ways!

    Your rental includes everything you need in a simple kit:

    • 1 Omni Sync Rig
    • 6 HERO4 Black Cameras
    • 6 HERO4 Black Camera batteries
    • 1 GoPro Smart Remote
    • 6 32GB microSD Cards
    • 6 microSD card readers
    • 6 GoPro Mini USB Cables
    • 6 GoPro Lens Covers
    • 1 7-port USB Hub
    • 1 V-mount Battery
    • 1 V-mount Battery Plate with Clamp
    • 1 V-mount Battery Charger
    • 1 Powertap Cable
    • 1 Tweezers
    • 1 Hex Key
    • 1 Plastic Hard Case

    If you have questions about how to get started with the GoPro Omni, we prepared a quick crash course on the blog.
