Looking to buy some equipment new and used, suggestions
Posted 16 September 2009 - 05:29 PM
I would like to know what big online shops selling professional cine-gear are out there. I'm planning on buying some stuff and want to compare some prices. Google isn't helping me out to much at this point.
I only know of three major online equipment sellers up until now: Filmtools, Abel and ZGC. Could you give some links to others ?
For used lenses sets who are the big players out there. I'm looking for someone who sells well taken care of equipment or equipment repaired by professionals which I can trust like Visual Products which also offers warranty for the stuff they sell. I also found out the Powerbroker page. It seems nice but I do not have a complete piece of mind that the lenses are in the best of shapes and also no warranty.
Is there a good practice to approach big rental houses and ask them if they have something they would like to selll? Again, i'm reffering to lenses sets. Could you give me some names of said rental houses ?
What kind of equipment is best to be bought brand new ?
Thank you ,
