Review: Rentglass.com lens rental service

Many professional photographers rent lenses. Rather than spending huge sums on lenses (or other equipment), they rent just what they need for the job at hand. Sounds good, right? But not everyone has a decent camera shop nearby with rental service. In fact, I’d wager that you could only find lens rentals in large metro areas. Rentglass.com, an online lens rental company operating out of Florida, solves that issue by delivering lenses directly to you and at a price often cheaper than bricks and mortar stores.

My package from Rentglass.com has arrived

Rentglass.com is an online lens rental service a la Netflix. My first rental just arrived this morning. First impression? So far, so good. The lens arrived soundly and quickly. Oh, and you Nikon guys are going to hate me. I’m the reason their Nikon 18-200mm AF-S VR Zoom is out of stock this week.

Check back soon for my detailed review and opinions about the service.

Weekend Assignment June 30, 2006: Fireworks and festivals

OK, so it’s not exactly this weekend but July 4th is a great day for photographs. And not just for the fireworks (which can be spectacular) but for all of the great events that precede and surround them. So this weekend’s assignment will be sort of a mixed bag of possibilities. (And for our purposes, this “weekend” will extend through July 4th.) Use my tips on photographing events to help you shoot something festive this weekend. Maybe it’s a street fair or pre-show. Or grab the tripod when you head out to your favorite fireworks show. It’s not as hard as you think. Please add your photos to the discussion at Flickr. As always, I’m happy to discuss any problems you ran into and I love seeing everyone’s efforts. Have a great weekend!
