I enjoy taking photos, especially ones of food (you can tell by our Instagram) so when I do, I try to make it look as appetizing and of quality as possible. Sometime's it's hard to do that with my phone when I'm at events, so I have been in the market for a DSLR (still am). But before I commit myself to making that big purchase, I wanted to play around with one to make sure I choose the right one. That's when I learned of the rental service at Henry's Cameras - yup, you can rent from their large selection of DSLR cameras, lenses, camera accessories & more!
Henry's is one of Canada's top sources for the newest and best products staffing imaging experts and offering competitive pricing. Not only that, Henry's School of Imaging offer new and skilled photography-enthusiasts a variety of classes - remember the Phone-O-Graphy class I attended?
For my recent trip to Boston, I wanted to take a DSLR that would allow me to take great cityscapes and landscapes as well as a zoom lens for food photography. But, I couldn't just stake out $1,000 on a new camera when I just used that money on a trip. That's when I turned to Henry's Rentals list of available rental cameras! You can rent for a day, a weekend or a whole week at great prices.
Once I chose the product, the process was fast and easy. Fill out the form, submit and pick up the product during their office hours. Between the Nikon D750 and Canon EOS 6D, I went with the Nikon. I had fun shooting with the Nikon D750 (value: $155 for the weekend) but in the end, I realized it's not quite what I want. I'm still in the market for one, so perhaps I'll try a the Canon next!
Renting a camera or a lens is a great option for someone:
1) like me that just wanted to try a camera before committing to making a big purchase
2) a photographer that needs a specific lens for a project or an event
3) a photographer in need of a backup camera, lens or other photography equipment
If you're in the market for a camera, today's your lucky day...
