I did a music video in Atlanta last year and didn't have a good experience with the camera or the rental house. We rented an SR3 and lots of stuff was missing and things broke and the ground glass was wrong, etc...
Some of the problems were definitely the 1st AC's fault (he was local) but other problems were the rental houses fault. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the rental house, but if I were you I would consider renting from Panavision Florida, which is in Orlando, or from somewhere in North Carolina, since I think the rental house we used in Atlanta is the only one in town. Sorry I can't be of more help. Maybe you'll have better luck, or use a different rental house if you go with HD.
