Welcome to the new website!

30 November -1 | Category: Website

So we're finally live! The day that I did wonder would ever happen has! So what's new? We've kept things familiar whilst taking note of customer suggestions to make things better all round. You'll notice we've split the site into two sections - Stills and Motion. Whilst equipment is shared across both sides, we have tried to ensure that navigation is easier giving each section unique category and filters. The big news is Live Availability - no more waiting for a response to an availability request - what you see is live off our stock system. If it's not greyed out, it's available. Simply choose the number of days you want and when you first want to use it, get the quote, add to basket and then checkout!

Canon XC10 now in stock

23 August 2015 | Category: Motion

Canon XC10 now in stock The new Canon XC10 4K camera is an interesting one. A lot of people have been moaning about the lack of fast lens and XLR connections. Okay, it would be nice to have a lovely f/2.8 lens the whole way through and XLR connections would have been very useful but it also would have pushed the weight and size of the camera (and I expect the cost) up a fair bit. The weight is actually a surprise - it's much lighter than you think. Is the shape of camcorders to come? Possibly, yes......
