I am looking to shoot a short on my HVX. We are on a very limited budget, but I want to rent a 35mm adapter (letus or mini35) and a few prime lenses to use with it. However, it seems like most rental houses in NYC require a hefty cash deposit, and or a large insurance policy for any sort of rental. Any advice as to where in NYC one could rent this equipment without too much up front?

Also, what sort of support gear (i.e. rods, shoulder mounts, etc,) should I plan on with the HVX w/adapter setup?

Thanks

You might be best off finding a private owner in NY. Take out a craigs list ad if you'd like. I'm sure you'll get responses.
As for support and the like, for myself, I normally rent that out as part of the "kit."

I'm not sure if ANYone is going to rent you gear without some form of deposit or without insurance.

Check dvxuser.com for potential owners of this kind of gear who may offer to rent.
