The Friday Feels #borrowlenses
Photography, like any art, when done well can really express and show emotions. This week I went searching for images that do just that. See what emotions you feel when you view these images: …have you seen my chew bone? by Christoph Oberschneider on 500px Dies, Nox et Omnia by Mathieu Degrotte on 500px Standing in …

    When Fuji announced the X-T1, the first weather-sealed X-mount camera, this was all well and good but there just weren't any weather-sealed Fuji lenses at the time. At last, the Fuji 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 WR OIS lens answers the…

Anticipation for the Canon 5d Mart IV has officially begun
#borrowlenses #canon #5dmarkIV #4kvideo #canonrumors  
With price cuts and the fact that the Canon 5D Mark III is three years old, there's no question another model is on the horizon.

In such a male dominated category it's a nice idea to pause and recognize the talents of women behind the screen too! Here's to encouraging a whole new generation of women to push for success in the film industry #borrowlenses   #cinematography   #womeninfilm  
While cinematography tends to be a boys club, there are plenty of talented female Directors of Photography.

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.

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 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!

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!

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 lens, that I am considering buying, for a weekend trip. I booked the lens a week in advance and received a call the day before I was supposed to receive it that it was overbooked and not available. After asking some questions, the representative told me that the all copies of the lens I booked had been sold and they would not have any copies to rent until the following week. Clearly their inventory system has issues. They did offer an upgraded rental at no additional charge, but I wasn't interested in any other lens.

I purchased a FF Nikon and immediately discovered I was lens poor. I have rented locally and from BL. If you value your time, BL has great rates. I used a 10 day rental on 70-200 2.8 that I was considering. The lens is sublime, it arrived on time, with hood & UV filter, nice... I sent it back by dropping it off at my office. I received an email response when BL received it back. What could be better? A $2,000 lens delivered when you want it. I discovered that the lens is really heavy for what I want to do. I loved it and will rent from time to time, but I will save my $$ and buy something better suited to me.
