PF 063: How Lens Rental Services Can Help Your Photography
Lens Rental Services Offer More Help Than You May Think
If you haven't used any lens rental services before, you may want to take a look to see what you're missing.
In this episode of The Photo Flunky Show, Lee and I discuss some of the benefits of lens rental services that may not be apparent, but could save you some hassle and frustration.
Why Rent Lenses?
There are some standard reasons to rent a lens:
- You want to try it out before you make a purchase decision
- You don't need it often enough to justify purchasing one
Other reasons to rent:
- Your lens is in for repair
- You need another copy of a lens for a job
- You don't want to travel with your own gear
While good reasons, those aren't the only ways you can take advantage of rental agencies. That's because they have more than just lenses for rent.
More Than Lenses
In addition to a large selection of lenses for popular cameras, many of these lens rental services also carry things like:
- Camera bodies
- Video cameras
- Lighting Equipment
- Underwater housings
- Tripods and support
- You can buy used gear
