XL2 Rental

Does anyone know of a place near the New Jersey area that I'll be able to rent the Xl2? Does B&H rent?

Our sponsor ZGC will know who rents in the NJ area, although you're still about five weeks too early.

Well, I don't mean to hi-jack your thread, so I hope you don't mind if I post this. I just didn't want to start another thread with the same subject.

I am looking to rent an XL2 sometime in October. I'm about an hour south of Nasvhille. If anyone has any info on a place in Nasvhille I could possibly rent an XL2, that would help me out as well.

Thanks Michel. Do you think they will upgrade to the XL2? Also, the film I want to use this camera for is a college project.

Do you think they might give me a rental discount since I am a student?

Daniel. I have been dealing with Showcase in Atlanta, GA for over 14 years. Beleive me, you can trust them. They are really professionals in the video world. Call them and ask for anyone in video, they are all pros. Bob Safay

showcase

Daniel:

Like Bob says they are pros and when I lived there all of my dealings with them were great. They gave some great deals as well but beyond that nice, knowledgable and very fair...

Oh, it's not that I am worried about them. I just wonder if they will be upgrading to the XL2. It doesn't say anything about it on the site.

And I was just curious if they might cut me a break with a student discount on rentals.

But yeah, I'm sure they are quite trustworthy. I might give them a call. My film is VERY visual effects heavy. That being the case, I really want to shoot progressively and in 16:9.

Too bad I don't know anyone from DVinfo in the Nashville area that might lend me a hand, ha ha.

I work at WAFF Channel 48 news in Huntsville, Alabama, and we have a DVX, but I don't think they will let me use it to film a student project.
