Other Items for Rent:
Zeiss Contax Primes 

The best kept secret in the Zeiss family of lenses. Zeiss Contax T* prime lenses are optically fantastic, organic, low con yet sharp.  Same T* coatings as Superspeeds and Standards and cut well with them. They’ve been cine-modded by Duclos (declicked, cine focus gears added) with 80mm/77mm thread front caps.  All the lenses are the later MM version so no ninja star bokeh. Each lens has a rock solid, semi-permanent Leitax Canon mount attached.

Made for full frame still cameras so they cover Dragon’s 6k sensor and 5D and any other full frame still or motion camera with a Canon mount.

Very versatile. Small and light so they’re perfect for gimbals or run ‘n’ gun handheld.  All metal with great build quality.  I’ve used them on everything from bright and happy commercials to narrative films to docu-style projects.

Rental Terms

Insurance is required on all Red camera package rentals. For inexpensive items, a deposit equal to the value of the item is required.  The full rental fee is due at pick up. The insurance certificate needs to be sent at least one business day prior to your pick up.  Renter pays all shipping costs if not being pick up locally in LA. If shipping, the rental period is from the time the camera leaves our hands until it returns.

Weekly rates are 3 day weeks. Weekly rentals are 7 calendar days long, e.g., if you pick up on a Monday, it’s due back in on the following Monday to be considered a one week rental.  For weekend rentals, pick up is Friday afternoon with return on Monday morning.  If paying by credit card, paypal or google checkout,  the 3.75% fee they charge will be added to the rental fee.  A deposit (separate from the rental fee) in the amount equal to your equipment insurance deductible is required which will be returned if there is no loss or damage.

A non-refundable deposit equal to 30% of the total rental fee ($300 min.) is required to guarantee and hold the equipment for specific dates.  A deposit isn’t required but without it there’s no guarantee the equipment will be available for your dates. For example, if you have a one day rental I can hold the camera for you without a deposit being paid, but if a 2 week rental comes up and wants it for the same time, they will get the camera.  With a deposit, your dates are locked in.
