I know this is a stupid green-horn question, but where do you rent an SI camera package?

I went to what I thought was their website, but they only had sample files, specs and their home office address listed there.

Do you have to know somebody to get your hands on one of these babies?

Yeah... I saw able to get Abel down to a more reasonable price for just a two week feature, but I don't think the demand for the camera was high at that moment.

I rent mine out of Toronto, willing to travel.
Package starts at $375/day and goes up depending on what is required. (not $1200 without lenses like Abel).

Just got in the full Linos lens set. 12, 16, 25, 50. 1.6/1.8. very sharp, compact lenses. Also a 16-100 1.9 zoom. and 5.9 angenieux, 10mm switar. PL and Nikon lens mounts available. Records to a solid state touchscreen laptop which can be slung in a backpack for ultimate portability.

some posts in my blog.. www.framediscreet.blogspot.com

love the camera :D Sure as hell beats the Red Workflow (on set and off).

Yeah, $1200/day seemed a bit steep. Still, with all the financial fires I've been putting out these last couple of years, it'll be a while before I can afford anyone's camera package.
