The rental process with John was very smooth, quick, and accomodating. Everything in the listing was exactly as it was described when I went to pick up the camera and camera gear. The camera worked great with no issues and the film gate movement was clean and clear of any film emulsion. John also went over each piece of gear for the camera package and explained how the camera package is setup. If you're looking to rent an ARRI 435 35mm camera or other cine equipment, please consider renting from John. Shooting on film is such a rewarding medium to use, I am glad I made that choice. I for sure, will be renting from him again!
