Correct me if I am wrong but Adorama requires a full deposit of the cost of the lens. They only accept the deposit in the form of credit cards.

Thats correct. Adorama rentals have worked exceptional for me.

Beginners worry about gear, professionals worry about skill and masters worry about light

Borrowlenses because they are local to me. Nothing beats saving some cash and picking the lens up on the day you want it instead of hanging around waiting for fedex.

+5 for LensRentals.com. They took good care of me when I rented a lens for 6 weeks earlier this year. :)

For that long a period, wouldn't it have been more cost-effective to just buy?

Just a little background, I had to shoot some Professional Tennis down in Palm Springs California and rented the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II, and a Manfrotto Fluid Video Monopod w/the three feet at base to balance that sucker all day. Also for fun since I was going to the desert I wanted to try out the Singh-Ray Variable Neutral Density Filter - 77mm to fit the 70-200mm I was renting. The lenses itself was around $235 for 3 weeks which was enough time to work and play with this beautiful but heavy peace of art. All the gear was in perfect shape, even so I went over everything with a fine tooth comb before sending it back and they noticed and said thanks. They also helped us several times in the past with some specialty lenses for a Phantom Camera shoot we were doing.

A photo ID and a major Non-Debit Credit Card with enough line of credit available to hold the full replacement value of the equipment you are renting.

Once we receive your equipment back and if there are no damages or losses, the Security Deposit on your card is released.


Alternatively you can provide a Certificate of Insurance that covers rented Photo Equipment for the full replacement value, naming Adorama Rental Co as the Certificate Holder or Loss Payee.

In this case, we will only put a hold for the amount of your deductible on your Credit Card.

We do not provide Insurance. We strongly encourage renters to obtain an insurance policy, especially if you rent frequently or when the replacement value of your orders is high.

Okay, I'll throw in my two cents. Lensgiant.com. I've used them twice...(disclaimer: I haven't used Lensrental.com)


Don't blame the gear, it only does what I tell it to. :D

Would be nice to be able to see shipping charges without going through the whole process.
