Creating a Camera Equipment List
Posted 25 May 2005 - 08:53 PM
i have to create a equipment list for a camera package (arri sr2 super 16mm,zeiss super speed lenses, video assist...)
has anyone done such a list before or are there even basic layouts on the internet which i could use as guidlines ?
i basically have to write every part down so that it can eb ticked off when the cam goes out and comes back, to see if anything is missing.

Anyway once the package is ordered the rental house will have a list ready for you. I usually have the assistant make a couple of copies so we can check things periodically.

Maybe you're using the word Hire in a way I'm not familliar? I assume you're not talking about renting your own kit out to other people. Why then would you ask the question? Just make a list of the stuff you have.

When I rent my camera out I always go with it as the AC.
But some people are more possesive then others.
I recommend you make a basic list...of everything...
If you don't really trust them make more comprehensive list...
Or you can just ask them to supply insurance or a deposit--
Or better yet just don't rent it to them.
Don't worry about screws, they only cost $10--$20 bucks...
Worry about the things that cost hundreds and thousands of dollars
That what I'd put on the list...
You know the camera body, speed controllers, lenses, matte-box, filters, etc...
I'd also recommend you go over your camera with the AC
Just so he/she knows how the camera handles and stuff like that...
And make sure that he/she knows everything the camera comes with
And this will avoid less problems.
Remember trust your gut feelings
When you meet someone who seems careless be extra cautious.
And always protect yourself because if you don't you'll get screwed very easily.

Funny when I ask for a print out of my packages from rental house they come in a weird order and usually overly detailed. E.g. sliding base plate with three lock down screws. They usually sort the list in order of pulling the item from shelves and not in a logical order.
