Hi, shooting a low budget music video next weekend and was wondering if anyone knew any good places to rent a red camera for a day at a reasonable price. It's a Sunday shoot though, so would that mean I have to pay two days rental as I would need to pick it up last thing Friday?

Just looking for body, and either one zoom lens, or set of primes which ever is cheaper. Mattebox, sticks, FF not essential if it would bring the cost down as I can get those pretty cheap elsewhere.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Dave. :)

There are loads of guys who bought a Red thinking that with one camera they'd be in the rental business. There should be lots of competition, so you should get a good price. Bear in mind that you don't get the kind of backup if anything goes wrong that you'd have from an established rental house.
