leica-telyt-f55Leica Telyt Long Lens System

The Leica Telyt Long Lens System looks great on the camera, imagine what it looks like in the camera.  With two head units and three focus units you can create six different lens combinations in four focal lengths.  280mm f/2.8, 400mm f/2.8 or f/4, 560mm f/4 or f/5.6, and 800mm f/5.6.  These lenses offer unique options for fast, telephoto lenses.  The focus units are Leica R-mount and the kit comes with an R-mount to EF-mount adapter.  We also have a support system for using these lenses with larger camera bodies.

$325/day with support system

canon_c500_with_odyssey_7qCanon C500 EF mount

A solid workhorse.  The C500 is capable of internal 8-bit 1080 4:2:2 recording, or outputting 10-bit 4k RAW up to 60fps with Canon’s famous color science behind it.  This camera still keeps up with newer models when paired with a 4k recorder like the Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q.

$475/day with Odyssey 7Q w/RAW bundle
