Are you hosting a special event or taking a vacation and want photos that are seriously better than the ones you can capture via your phone camera? Yet have no interest in investing in a professional photographer let alone spring for the cost of the equipment. Have we found an option for you! If you have not yet heard, Tiny Prints‘ sister company BorrowLenses allows you to rent digital camera equipment for a fraction of the cost of purchasing it.
We love this idea because seldom do most of us need a professional quality camera, it would be great to have occasionally. Yes, you do need to plan a bit in advance so it can be delivered to your door in time. But at least you will know that next time you need a camera you can again choose from the latest technology and will not be stuck with an outdated camera unsuited for your current needs.
Which Camera to Rent
Since we know so little about cameras, we have been reluctant to recommend any, but today we found this fabulous camera review by David Pogue on the Sony a6300 camera. And after checking that BorrowLenses actually carries this camera, felt compelled to share. According to the article this Sony a6300 mirrorless digital camera retails for $1,150 with a lens ($998.00 for the body only) but BorrowLenses offers the exact same Sony a6300 mirrorless digital camera for $68.00 plus the cost of a lens of your choosing.
Think Holiday Cards!
One more thought >> BorrowLenses even offers a three day rental option for just $47.00 plus the cost of the lens which might be ideal if you want to spend an entire weekend trying to capture the perfect holiday card photo. They even have portrait packages that include all the equipment needed for taking perfect portraits. Continue Reading →
