  1. Zeiss CP2 6-Lens Set EF Mount

    Zeiss CP2 Lens Set

    Zeiss CP2 lenses have become a standard for film and television productions.  These cinema primes offer full-frame coverage for DSLRs and speedboosters, and are equally at home on cinema cameras with EF mounts and DSLRs.  We offer this set of six lenses, including the “super speed” 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm lenses.

    Shooting on a matching lens set means your shots will all have the same color, contrast, and look.  The fourteen-blade iris makes for near-perfect bokeh and Zeiss’ T* coating reduces reflections and flare.  These lenses are fully manual, and the barrel sizes are matched for easy lens changes, even behind a mattebox and follow focus. They have imperial markings (in feet). Your rental includes a hard case.

    Lenses included:

    Zeiss CP.2 21mm T2.9 EF
    Zeiss CP.2 28mm T2.1 EF
    Zeiss CP2 35mm T1.5 EF

    Zeiss CP.2 50mm T1.5 EF
    Zeiss CP.2 85mm T1.5 EF
    Zeiss CP.2 100mm T2.1 EF

  3. Zeiss 50mm T1.5 CP2 Lens with EF Mount

    The Zeiss CP.2 50mm T1.5 Super Speed lens with EF mount is an excellent all-purpose lens, and reads as a “normal” focal length on full frame or Vista Vision sensors like the Canon 5D mark III.  Zeiss CP.2s have become a standard for film and television productions.  The Compact Prime family offer full-frame coverage for DSLRs and speedboosters, and are equally at home on cinema cameras with EF mounts and DSLRs.

    The fourteen-blade iris makes for near-perfect bokeh and Zeiss’ T* coating reduces reflections and flare.  Zeiss CP.2s are fully manual, and barrel sizes are matched for easy lens changes, even behind a mattebox and follow focus. All our CP2 lenses have imperial markings (in feet).

    Our Zeiss CP2 lenses can be reserved and rented as a kit. We don’t accept advance reservations for individual lenses, but you can pick them up same-day with an appointment.

    Looking for a more affordable Zeiss 50mm? Our Zeiss cine-modded 50mm Planar T* is a popular option.

    Insurance or a deposit is required for this rental.

  4. Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS Lens

    Canon-70-200-2-8-is

    The Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS lens is famous for beautiful bokeh, tack-sharp images, and impressive image stabilization.  This telephoto zoom lens is most popular with wedding, event, sport, and nature photographers, but is also right at home on DSLR video sets.

    The 70-200, like all EF-mount lenses, will work with any Canon DSLR we carry.  It’s also compatible with the Canon 1.4x telephoto extender, for added reach.  It has 77mm front threads, and close-focuses to 4.6 feet.

  5. Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM Zoom Lens

    Canon-24-70-2-8Canon’s 24-70mm f/2.8 L II lens is the professional’s standard midrange zoom. The zoom length is practical and the lens is fast enough to use indoors. Comparing it to the 24-105mm f/4 L, or the original Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L, we find it to be significantly sharper, with less distortion. In our opinion, it’s the strongest midrange zoom made for any full frame camera.

    24-70mm is an obvious choice for a zoom lens on a full-frame camera, but works on a crop-factor camera, too, if you don’t mind it being on the heavy side.  It has 82mm front threads and close focuses to 16″.

    If you have a need for a stabilized midrange zoom, we love the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 VC.

  6. Zeiss 85mm T1.5 CP2 Lens with EF Mount

    The Zeiss CP.2 85mm T1.5 lens with EF mount is an excellent long lens on both full frame and super 35 sensors.  The Compact Prime lens family offer full-frame coverage for DSLRs and speedboosters, and are equally at home on cinema cameras with EF mounts and DSLRs.

    The fourteen-blade iris makes for near-perfect circle bokeh and Zeiss’ T* coating reduces reflections and flare.  Zeiss CP.2s are fully manual, and barrel sizes are matched for easy lens changes, even behind a mattebox and follow focus. All our CP.2 lenses have imperial markings (in feet).

    Our Zeiss CP.2 lenses can be rented as a kit. We don’t accept advance reservations for individual lenses, but you can pick them up same-day with an appointment.

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

    canon-100-400-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.

  8. 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.

  9. Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS macro telephoto lens

    100mm-macro-IS-lens

    The Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS macro lens is well-suited to shooting small objects up close, as well as portraits. The macro lens has a 1:1 magnification, and the EF mount will work with both full frame and crop factor cameras (that means every Canon DSLR ever made).

    The image stabilization is useful for handheld video work, as well as portraiture. Most macro photographers will using a tripod, making IS less necessary. Autofocus is fast and accurate. The lens accepts 67mm front filters.

    The lens is optically near-perfect, with remarkable sharpness, virtually no distortion, and great imaging corner-to-corner.

    rent-5dmkiii-milwaukee

    The Canon 5D mark III is the only DSLR that supports uncompressed 14-bit raw video recording in 1080p24, through the use of Magic Lantern.  It also offers uncompressed 4:2:2 output over HDMI.  For video shooters using DSLRs, the 5D mk III builds on the legacy of the 5D mk II, with an updated sensor for reduced moire and improved low-light performance, timecode support, and a headphone jack.  This Canon DSLR also records .mov files in IPB or all-I compression.  Oh yeah, it’s a pretty awesome stills camera, too, with some of the most advanced autofocus features available in any camera today.

    This camera accepts EF lenses, not included.  We include three batteries, a charger, and 64GB of Compact Flash storage, and will install Magic Lantern for free by request.
