How much does it cost to rent the CineAlta F23 package for about a week? Are there student rates? I've be told that HD is cheaper than 35, cuz you'd avoid extra expenses: film stock, processing, telecine...and of course that Super16 won't cut it for big screens. Is it? It would be a big help. Thanks for reading!

The F23 has just been announced at NAB. I believe some have been ordered, but it's a bit early yet for rental rates, however, they won't be cheap. You'd get a deal on a F900 much easier than the new F23.

You'll have to factor in the cost of transferring the HD to 35mm if you want to project it in a cinema without digital projection. Also, your workflow on a F23, which uses HDCAM SR, which will add to your costs.

Super 16 works on the big screen, quite a few feature films have been shot using it.

i would have a look at red (red.com) if you donĀ“t have to shoot within the next 3-6 weeks and still have some time to plan.

Where is a good place to rent Sony F900 or find student friendly rental houses?

I checked out HD Camera LA. They say it costs $3000/week for the Sony HDW-F900 ENG Camera Package. Is that a good deal? I'd have to get other accessories as well. I've been told these camera including all the camera accessories costs at least $10,000 for a week shoot.
