DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras

Canon EOS 5DSR

DSLR camera rentals, or digital single-lens reflex cameras, are the industry-preferred tool for photography. Such cameras combine the optics and the mechanisms of a single-lens reflex camera with a digital imaging sensor, compared to photographic film. Compared to mirrorless or point-and-shoot cameras, DSLR’s allow videographers to see in real-time the exact scene to capture via the optical viewfinder.

Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, or MILC, have quickly become the go to for video projects ranging from events, behind the scenes and music videos to television, cinema and other widely distributed productions.  MILC have the advantage of allowing for all the image quality and range of versatility of the DSLR in a smaller, lighter package. They also give users the ability to get exposure and dynamic range feedback in real time via the electronic viewfinder or the rear LCD screen.

Looking for a versatile mirrorless camera? Rent the Canon EOS R5, boasting a 45MP sensor and the new technically superior Canon RF-Mount lenses. It even lets you use your Canon EF-Mount lenses with the EF-EOS R series of adapters.
