Hi Rotorhead - are you looking for recommendations on Rental Companies, or on specific gear? If it's specific gear, the type of work would define that.

I've always used Lensrentals, and had great experiences with them.

I've never rented from lensrentals myself, but I have always heard good things about them.

I have rented equipment from Dodd Camera here in Cleveland:

They have a number of stores and a pretty decent inventory of equipment... even some of the Hasselblad dSLR's :D. I'd previously purchased some large items there before so they even gave me 50% on a lens rental.

thanks for the input, I am looking for input on a GOOD company, not looking for eq recommendations. I am renting an extra 7D for a video shoot. I have all the lens I need. Going to be doing the shoot in Chattanooga.

I went with lensrentals.com when I needed some extra gear. Good service, and the owner is a member here.
