Zacuto's Rentals Adds New Cameras, Lenses, Monitors and Other Accessories to Inventory

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Apr 27, 2011) - Zacuto Camera Rental has recently expanded their inventory with the addition of the new Sony F3 and Panasonic AG-AF100 to their catalog. Because both of these cameras have an interchangeable lens option, the rentals department has also acquired a variety of new lenses ready to use with either camera. Two full sets (21mm/28mm/35mm/50mm/85mm) of Zeiss CP2 lenses are available with either PL or ZE style mounts, plus a full set of Zeiss ZE-mounted prime lenses, more Zeiss ZF-mounted prime lenses and several new Canon L-series zoom lenses.

"People have been calling and coming in nonstop just to check out these new cameras," says Zacuto Rentals Manager, Joe DeJulius. "It's always exciting to add new tools to your repertoire."

In addition to the cameras and lenses, Zacuto Rentals has also purchased new lights, monitors and microphones. They now carry LitePanel 1x1 Bi-Color lights and a supplemental 5-piece Arri Soft Bank IV lighting kit in an effort to combat the department always running out of lights to rent. A SmallHD HDMI monitor and a TV Logic 056WP monitor have also been added to the Zacuto Rentals inventory. Both are great monitors to use with DSLR cameras. The TV Logic 056WP monitor has the ability to convert an HDMI signal onboard to loop out as HD-SDI.

Due to popular demand, Zacuto Rentals has also purchased a Kessler CineSlider. The CineSlider comes with accessories that will allow you to mount the slider on a set of 100mm bowl tripod legs as well as accessories used to mount a 100mm tripod head on the slider.
