I want to invest in an ARRI 35mm Film but I cannot afford to purchase it upfront. Is there anyway to finance or lease any ARRI products? Any useful info you guys have is much appreciated
Yeah man, buying a camera is, pardon my french, for suckers. Unless you have a revenue stream in place to help pay for that camera, you're much better off renting. Especially for film. Are you honestly going to shoot enough days in a row to justify buying over renting?
And film gear is cheap now to rent. Places are getting rid of them left and right. They're desperate to rent, and you can leverage that to your advantage. Hell, some guys who own their own cams might even be willing to loan if it means they get to do some DPing, and run a bit of film.
Explore your options, tap into those connections, and seriously. Don't. Buy.

Try and rent, there are plenty out there like Tstop inc. They rent almost all ARRI products and have good reviews. If you were really interested in leasing like you mentioned you could try American capital group. They lease a lot of products and I've heard good reviews as well.
Goodluck either way man
