Before and after each rental we check and test our equipment for focus, sharpness, and functionality. We guarantee the glass is clear and the lens works normally. We also check each camera body to ensure that the sensor is clean and the buttons are fully functional. Our equipment are used regularly so there will be some scuff marks on the surface of the equipment, etc. There may be some internal dust in the lenses and in viewfinders of the cameras. This is common and will not affect the image quality of your shoot. If there is any effect on image quality, the equipment goes off for servicing, otherwise it remains in service.
Do inform us immediately and return the equipment to us so we can assess the damage. DO NOT attempt to repair the item yourself or send in for repair. If repair is required, we will collect a $300 deposit immediately upon returning of equipment. The final repair cost is based on the receipt provided by the authorised service centre. We will provide the receipt from the service centre without demand. If item is beyond economic repair, we'll charge you the cost of a used equipment of equivalent specifications. Rental costs will not be charged while the equipment under inspection and servicing.
A damage is:
- Scratches or scuff marks on the glass of a lens
- Impact damage (dents) to the body
- Mechanical failure
- Water seepage
- Any other damage that causes a malfunction to the equipment
As not all equipment are made to be weather resistance, we urge you to protect the equipment from the elements as much as possible. Wherever possible, we have included a UV filter and a lens hood to all our lenses as they serve important protective functions. We recommend you to utilise the lens hood when you shoot as it also blocks stray light that may affect your image.
Minor scuff marks to the barrel, hood of lenses, camera bodies and other equipment are considered as normal usage wears which are not considered as damage.
Upon collection, please check that the equipment is in working condition. You may test the equipment if necessary. We are dedicated to rent you equipment that are in the best working condition for your shoot.
