Hi,

I'm probably shooting a student film here in Toronto in November. However I haven't found any cheap 35mm rentals around. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I'm looking for something like Konvas or Arri II something if I can't find any Konvases around here. Do you guys know any owners around here? It would be probably a weekend shoot... I would also need some lenses and accessories..

Have you seen the prices for Konvas gear on ebay? You can buy and own one for the cost of a rental, why waste your money on a rental?

I can tell you that no rental house in TO would even touch a Konvas, most have never even seen one.

Buy the camera and you'll have it for all your future projects.

R,

Thanks,

That's not practical since I'm leaving Canada in less than three months. Anyway, thousand bucks is not what I'm looking for. I mean cheap cheap cheap.

The guys in Sweden rent their Konvas 2M (crystal, etc.) with complete lens set for less than 200 bucks a day. And that's taken out of their pricelist...

Maybe I'll have to consider super16, but I kinda though I'd get Konvas for the same money or for less...But yeah I'll keep looking for owners who could consider renting.
