Should I Rent or Buy?
Video cameras have no set life span. However technology does move very rapidly and you will find that people from all walks of life, from wedding photographers through to well known professionals choose to rent as a way of keeping costs down. With video camera rental you will also benefit from using the latest technology too. Remember the way a piece of equipment is used also influences how long the equipment will last. A simple formula to use is to divide the capital price of the camera by the amount of times you imagine you would use it over two years; the chances are you would be better off to always have the latest equipment if you chose video camera hire as opposed to purchasing. Would you like the latest equipment for every shoot? Would the cost of new technology be hard to justify? Is your current equipment not up to the job? Do you feel your current camera is not bringing out the best in you? If the answer to these questions is yes then look at video camera hire as an easy option to achieve the results you deserve
Whats the Best Video Camera To Hire?
Deciding on the best camcorder or video camera to hire is a question we are asked every day and whilst there are many deciding factors on the best equipment for any given job you also need to consider your budget.

What should I consider when choosing which model to hire?
You need to consider the following areas when looking at video camera hire: What will the footage be used for – standard DVD recordings would be fine for a fun day or something to be recorded that would be used for reference, however a wedding would require something more advanced. High Definition or Standard Definition – most new cameras now support HD and the chances are you would look to shoot in HD, the only downside of HD is the associated large file size however with the cost of digital storage becoming more affordable this is no longer such a problem. Tape or Solid State – Camcorders are now capable of recording onto cards or hard drives as opposed to tapes and all the latest models are now Hard Drive or Card based you will find that tape based camcorders or video cameras are older models and we no longer offer these as we have found the latest technology offers superior reliability and higher quality. Size – Size plays an important role. Hand held cameras are small but can become cumbersome and heavy, you will note professional cameramen tend to use shoulder mount cameras as this makes the camera much easier to hold for long periods of time and helps keep the camera stable however as the latest trends in camcorder design demonstrate the cameras are becoming smaller and most new models are had held in size or somewhere in between which has resulted in an explosion of companies making shoulder mount rigs to adapt a hand held camera into a shoulder mount design clearly giving you the best of both worlds in one video camera. There are a number of Video Camera Hire packages available to keep everything simple to achieve the best results given the different types of scenarios you may need to film so take a look at these easy to use video camera hire packages so you can get the best results for filming Weddings, Conferences and many other types of events
