Refine by Clear all
Production is a broad category full of all the ancillary gear that makes your project go smoothly. It includes the following important categories...
- Stabilization Gear (such as gimbals, tripods, and camera rigs)
- Video Recorders & Monitors
- Memory Cards & Drives
...and so much more – even camera bags!
While there is nothing wrong with rocking a simple camera and lens setup, it's really rewarding to be able to capture raw footage with an Atomos recorder or enhance your audio with a boom mic. Some of the production toys you've been wanting to explore are within reach thanks to online rental.
Technology is constantly evolving and renting helps creative professionals keep up with the latest trends, supplement their own gear when bringing on 2nd shooters, save wear and tear on their primary kits, or simply get hands-on experience before commiting to a purchase or showing up on someone else's set.
Here are a few other reasons why renting is key:
Convenience When Traveling
Leave your personal gear at home and eliminate the risk of it getting broken or stolen.
Perhaps most of the time you shoot solo but you have a particularly large event to cover and you want your second-shooter to use the same type of gear as you. This is a perfect use-case for renting.
Don't learn on the job study a piece of gear ahead of time! Rent a camera or lighting kit and get hands-on with it before jumping into a major event assistants, take note!
Not sure if you want to upgrade or if some certain new shiny system will work with your current accessories? Instead of using credit to purchase that high-megapixel camera and relying too much on a decent returns policy, why not just borrow the item for as little as dollars a day?
With such a broad category, it's hard to pluck out only a few options. But far and away these are our most popular rentals for shooters of nearly all expertise levels:
Atomos Ninja V+
This is the world's first monitor recorder to offer raw 8K30p and 4K120p continuous recording in an expanding list of compatible cameras. It gives you the flexibility you need on set for even the most demanding projects.
Stabilize your footage professionally without a lot of bulk with this modular gimbal that you can operate single handedly. This professional 3-axis system is designed specifically for portable setups using DSLRs and mirrorless cameras.
Aputure Light Storm LS 600c Pro
This is is Aputure's first ever RGBWW Bowens mount LED, offering full color functionality while also being one of the most powerful lights in Aputure's collection.
Boom Pole Microphone Bundle
In this gear bundle, you get multiple items for less than if you rented them all individually on the same order. This one gives you everything you need for a very simple, one-person, quick audio solution suitable for using around stationary subjects.
Rhino Arc II Carbon Fiber 24" Slider
With this rental you get not only a 24" slider but also the Arc II motorized pan/tilt head, a high speed motor, a leveling plate, and all necessary shutter cables to go with most camera models.
SanDisk 512GB CFexpress B Extreme Pro 1700MB/s
CFexpress is starting to take over as a dominate media format in modern mirrorless cameras. If you're unfamiliar with it, please check out our blog post What is CFexpress and How Does it Compare? Media with very large capacities can be quite expensive – unless, of course, you're renting!
If you ever have any trouble figuring out which monitor goes with your camera or if that pan head is a good choice for that slider, our crew at BL are all shooters themselves and are happy to walk you through every step of the way! Contact BL for assistance on your gear order.
