Earlier today I got an email from BorrowLenses.com, announcing a 5 year anniversary giveaway they're holding on Facebook, where they'll be giving away a Canon 5D Mark III or Nikon D800!
BorrowLenses.com is an online (of course with pick-up locations as well) camera gear/equipment rental service based here in the US. I love them because they carry a range of products (lenses, cameras, lights, audio equip, etc.) for you to rent at a super low price. Here are some real example prices to rent a few lenses:
I don't think it's bad at all! I'm an amateur photographer, aspiring to get better. But what if this ends up not being for me? Or what if I can't shoot as often as I'd like? Or what if I want to try some lenses out before I buy? Renting is the answer for all of these circumstances.
While I personally have not rented equipment from BorrowLenses.com (100% because I just haven't had the time), I love their business and plan on using them as soon as I have the time and money to rent lenses.
How BorrowLenses.com Works!
Their service is actually quite simple after you read all of the instructions!
You order them online, have them delivered to you (or you can pick it up at any of these locations), use it for your rental period, and send it back!
