We’re creatures of severe FOMO and when we know someone has a bit of kit that we don’t have. We need it immediately. Afterall we have to stay updated with the latest trends in the industry. That’s why we wanted to clue you in on some of the most popular hires we’ve seen this month.
This hardware device allows you to have an audience during your shoot. Whether that’s your client, other crew members and cast, you can connect up to 10 iPhones and iPads to monitor your video feed in HD. The Teradek Serv Pro has almost zero latency and connects easily over WiFi. You can hire this from Tom for only £80 per day.
A classic on KitMapper, the FS7 is one of the top rented pieces of kit on our platform. Jan’s kit in particular we love, because of this spectacular bundle. You’ll want to check out his listing to find out all that’s included. But for only £160 per day, Jan is making sure that you are in good hands, while keeping a full wallet.
The perfect addition to your next show is right here. We’ve been to countless exhibitions this past year, and we always see this same Sony Trinitron CRT Monitor. The good news for you is, you don’t have to search forever to find it. KitMapper will sort out your exhibition and all of your kit necessities for it. You can get this monitor for £20 per day from Borbala.
Another great exhibition or movie night companion, the BenQ Short Throw Projector. It’s compact and lightweight, so you don’t have to wonder about transporting it across London last minute. A fun fact, this was actually the world’s first HD short throw 3D projector. Tom will rent this projector to your for £15 per day.
I love a good macro lens. They’re perfect for product shots and the depth of field is great for b-roll. Not to mention it’s stabilised so it’s perfect for when you want to do some handheld shots. This lens also comes with a Hoya UV filter attached. Matt will let you hire this lens from him for £20 per day.
We know what you’re thinking. There’s no such thing as a perfect mic. But then you try this Shure SM7B for vocals, snares, guitar and bass cabs. You’ll be sure to change your mind. This mic is also a cardioid so it’s perfect for noisy environments when closely miked. Mark would be happy to help and answer any questions about the mic and you can hire it for £18 per day.
You may have already guessed this, but you can see this Barco Monitor at a lot of shows and installs done by KitMapper. This monitor can be paired with others to create a video wall. It’s perfect for low light conditions as that’s when you can see the brilliance of the screen the most. Dave would happily rent this monitor to you for £30 per day.
Puck has used this screen in her exhibitions. At 40″ it’s the perfect size for a display. It’s a pretty straightforward install with all of the ports that you’d need. Puck will let you hire this HD TV for £20 per day.
If you’re looking for an all-in-one bundle, you’ve found the perfect package for great video results. This kit will save you time and money, not having to travel various places to put together the right kit for your shoot. Have a look at all that Tom includes in this hire. He’ll gladly rent this bundle to you for £40 per day.
