If you are just beginning time-lapse photography this article deserves a bookmark!!

#BorowLenses #timelapse #video #photography
; Time-Lapse photography is a lot of fun and the results can be amazing. They can also be disappointing, with unwanted jerky, uneven movement, movement that's too fast to keep up with or something that resembles a slide show instead of a video. In most cases, these problems can be attributed to one thing: poor interval selection. Of all the aspects of shooting a time-lapse sequence, this seems to be where many photographers struggle the most. Tha...

Quite the leap from to Kodak's first Canon-based 1.3 megapixel camera retailing at $16k back in 1995!!

Canon's new ME20F-SH camera has some serious low-light power. It can shoot in the dark.

Did not get the chance to rent any equipment, If you are not a pro or know anyone who has rented from them several times you will be turned down, oh yeah or give them a $1000.00 deposit. I'm a student photographer and wanted to rent some better gear before going on vacation. I will not recommend this store and will post a review on the social media sites.

I have rented through BorrowLenses over the past few months and find their business to be extremely reasonable, cost effective and efficient for my needs. Their customer service is on point and I enjoy meeting their friendly and knowledgable staff every time I pick up or drop off equipment. I also like the fact that they have computers on-site because a few times, I've had to recreate my order and the process is a lot quicker when I can create the order myself. Keep up the Good Work!

Had a phenomenal First Time experience with Borrow Lenses a couple weeks ago. Borrowed a Nikon 12-24mm f/4.0 lens for a trip to Maine. The experience of finding and ordering the lens was very easy and straight forward. The lens shipped via Fedex and arrived ontime. The lens itself was in superb condition. Even sending the lens back was easy as they provided a return label and packaging. This is what renting camera equipment should be like. I am planning a trip to San Francisco in a couple weeks. I just ordered the same lens but this time I will be picking it up at a location near where I will be staying. Sure it will be a super good Second Experience! Thank you Borrow Lenses

I rented my usual camera body, 70-200, and my favorite 24-70. The 24-70 had issues with focusing at the long end. I had to come out, focus, and them come in again. Regardless to say it was broken. It was frustrating not having a working 24-70. I had other lenses to cover it but. . . So I e-mailed them about it and they refunded the cost of the rental for just that one lens. I wasn't using the equipment to shoot birds, no offense to bird shooters, or my kids playing in the backyard. I used them for my work and the equipment failed. I'm disappointed that they didn't refund my whole order. I don't want to give these guys a bad review but this was my first experience renting from them. Usually I rent from Calumet but Calumet has really bad customer service. Time to look for another place.

I needed to test out a Fuji X series lens on my X-T1. Since BorrowLenses has been on my radar for about two years now, the decision to utilize their services was an easy one. Especially after they opened a NYC branch for pick-up and drop-offs. I was pleased to find the entire process very straightforward and as accommodating as can be for me as a consumer. The process began online, followed by a security and verification fax. I then visited the office in New York City to pick-up and drop-off the lens. In short, the lens was clean and in great shape. The service online and in-person was absolutely top-notch. I highly recommend them for anyone who needs to rent or try out photographic gear.

These guys are awful to deal with. I was a potential customer and had placed an order for over $600.00 that I no longer needed because they did not accept my insurance. Hey, thats all fine and dandy but what wasn't OK was them charging my credit card even though I cancelled the order 2 weeks prior. On top of that, they knew I was not going to use them because of the insurance issue. I'm still in the process of getting that $600.00 back. I may adjust my rating if they fix the issue.

I rented a Nikon D600 and chose to pick it up at a local participating camera shop. EASY & convenient! I had a minor problem with the camera and emailed BorrowLenses and received a response almost immediately. They offered to send a replacement straight away! Very pleased here!
