Hey guys.

So I have a shoot coming up in a couple months and Im trying to decide on the lenses to use. I feel like the S4s are probably what I want as far as look, but I live in Austin and we dont have a set at any of our rental houses here. The closest place is about 6 hours away in Dallas.

Since I would have to have it shipped anyway, I am considering just looking for the best deal and shipping from somewhere else in the US. Anyone know of a easy to navigate database where I could find all the rental houses that have a set? Thanks!

As far as I know, there isn't one. You'll just have to start calling.

Don't know how recently this was updated, but it should be a good start:

Here is a link to Stratton Camera in Michigan. When considering rental houses it always best to call them and discuss your needs and your budget. If you just look at a rate card you'll never know what sort of deal you might have been able to work out.

Yeah definitely. The problem is there isnt really an easy way to search everywhere. I would have never known about Stratton Camera had you not posted. But thanks, I appreciate the help.
