Mamiya Sekor C/N 645 Prime Set, PL or EF-adapted

This is a set of medium format primes in rare condition, ready to be used on any PL or EF-mount camera. The Sekor C/N series is one of their finest, and they're becoming very popular with RED users, as the company is moving to larger sensors and there are few affordable lens options that cover the new RED 8K VistaVision. These beautiful Mamiyas cover 8KVV and beyond, sharp corner to corner, yet have a smooth character to them and a beautiful pop. They also tend to match excellently across the focal length range, and all but the wide and the macro have a 2.8 aperture (very sharp wide open). The set includes: 35mm f3.5 45mm, 55mm, 110mm f2.8 Choice of 80mm f2.8 or 80mm f1.9 (the fastest medium-format lens made) A custom made 645 to PL adapter made by Les Bosher in the UK OR a 645 to EF adapter. I use these frequently on my Epic-W and tend to leave the PL adapter positive-locked in the mount, and the lenses snap in much like with a EF mount. They will come in a Pelican 1400 case. PLEASE CONTACT ME IN ADVANCE: Let me know if you prefer EF or PL mount, or both adapters.

Westcott Ice Light (Daylight)

This is an excellent light-saber style fixture with great output and good battery life. It will run around 2-3 hours on a charge, depending on the output. Dimmable and easy to control, comes with screw mounts on both ends for placing on a simple stand. I find these to be very useful as a fill when shooting outdoors, or even key light when I'm doing a quick interview indoors where I cannot bring or set up a lot of light fixtures. Truly one of the most useful tools in a lighting kit, and fits in a backpack!

Rob was great. The gear was exactly as advertised. Pick-up/Drop-off was very easy as well.
It was my first time using the Blackmagic pocket 4k camera and I was very impressed. I hope to rent from you again soon. Thanks, Rob!

Funnily enough, we didn't end up using this kit for our shoot as we didn't end up needing it, but I would definitely rent from Roberto -- he was super accommodating for drop off and pickup times, and all the equipment was in great condition.

Great shoulder mount, easy to put together and was perfect for my needs. Fast response.

Renting with Roberto made my shoot go so smoothly. Along with being reliable and having a great selection of gear, he was really accommodating when a glitch in my schedule came up, and was more than willing to help me work out a solution. Definitely would recommend Roberto!
