CameraLends is a peer-to-peer lending community for photographers and videographers.
Owners post unused gear to rent out to other photographers
You can rent gear directly from local photographers, faster and cheaper than traditional means.
Request to rent camera equipment directly from nearby owners for the dates you need, with the price you want to pay.
An owner will accept your reservation request which will confirm your rental.
Find a time and place that works for both of you — like a convenient coffee shop after work or on your way out of town.
My team and I were in a pinch to find a drone to help capture the madness surrounding the Giants' 2014 World Series celebrations. Two days before the Giants won the series, we started looking for possible rental services.
After doing research, most drone rentals through companies costed $300+. CameraLends allowed me to arrange a rental with a lender in less than 12 hours before I needed to shoot, at an incredibly reasonable price. I met with my lender at a public park, and was given a very thorough demonstration on how to pilot the device and all proper operations before I left.
Our inventory is owned by photographers and videographers just like you. Most of the time this gear is collecting dust. Because of this, lenders are often willing to price lower than rental shops.
Have a last-minute request? Don't worry, that's our forte! When traditional shops are closed, our lenders can still help you out.
