So i would like to try some cameras before I commit. I know there are places that rent high end cameras. Unfortunately my area has no B&M shops that rent equipment so far as I found, its all video equipment. Anyone know of anywhere online where I could rent a camera with a lens or two thats reputable? Or if anyone out there is familiar with my area, Portsmouth, Norfolk, Newport News and knows of a place Im just not finding let me know. Thank you

I've rented from lensrentals.com and .ca (don't know if they are associated) and they both provided professional and efficient service but like most camera rental outfits I found them pricey.

Another vote for lensrentals.com. I've rented cameras and lenses, several times. Been happy with the deal each time and will use them again.

I use borrowlenses.com... they are based here in the Bay Area. Comparable prices to other sites i've browsed. Everything i've rented was in great condition.

They also do various specials throughout the year...right now they are offering 12 free rental days if you have a rental that ends on Christmas.

I have only used lensrentals.com a couple of times for lenses. Great service and communication. Fair price, but I had a discount code...read their blog for the latest offerings. They are located in TN so shipping to the east coast is quick.

I have used lensrentals.com several times and was very pleased with their service. The last lens I rented a 100-400L was extremely sharp and arrived well packaged and was cheaper with insurance than renting from my local camera store that does not offer any insurance options and places a hold for 100% of the lens value on your card.

I'll have to do that sweet. I'm still debating rather go for a t4i or bite the bullet and drop the cash on a 70d. Both used. This will be a way to figure it out
