Anyone know any details about leasing a Varicam and/or an HPX-500? I'm with a university film program and our video camera turnover is really starting to outpace our budget, so it seems that a lease would be the way to go.
Are there third-party vendors who do leases on these cameras, or do we need to deal with Panasonic directly? Any other advice, warnings, anecdotes, proverbs, etc.?

I don't have any direct experience with them, but I'd try Panasonic first. They may already have established policies for legitimate school programs. Nothing like building brand loyalty with new customers when they're just beginning their careers...

Please contact me about this. Abel Cine Tech has leasing and financing options available, especially to university programs.
