Brooklyn based. Minneapolis born. A7s Mark ii Owner. Producer for BAM and other independent projects. I joined Kitsplit because I want to meet people in the film community and help you with your project! I don't own a lot of gear, but if you want to use my camera I am offering it here. Please tell me about the project and how you will use the camera. I charge a little more than rental houses because I will make the pick-up extremely convenient, and I take better care of my equipment than rental houses where you might be using something with thousands of hours of footage having gone through it.

Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Lens

-E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format -Focal Length: 24 - 240mm Comparable 35mm Equivalent on APS-C Format Focal Length: 36 - 360 mm -Aperture Range: f/3.5-6.3 to 22-40 -Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization -Weight: 1.72 lb (780 g) -Filter Diameter: 72mm From B&H: The FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Lens from Sony is a full-frame compatible E-Mount telephoto zoom lens with the versatility to stretch from true wide-angle to super telephoto perspectives. Its advanced optical design includes 5 aspherical elements and 1 ED glass element, achieving high-quality performance with reduced chromatic and spherical aberrations in a compact design. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization facilitates sharper imaging in low light situations and when shooting at long telephoto lengths. An internal focus system means that only the central optical elements move during focus which enables faster autofocus and a shorter minimum focus distance. Also, the lens does not extend during focus and the front element does not rotate which is more practical, especially if using a polarizer filter. A linear AF motor drive also helps to achieve fast autofocus and a circular 7-blade aperture helps to create smooth and pleasing out-of-focus highlights. Sony Lens Model Number SEL24240

THIS DUDE IS THE BEST

Ben Cohen was amazing to work with. He delivered an absolutely fantastic camera package at a fantastic price, was very reliable with emails and plans to pick up and drop off equipment, and he also took time to make sure we knew the ins and outs of the equipment. I would recommend him and his gear to any filmmaker.
