A solid camera kit that was exactly what I was looking for. It was also really easy renting from Raymond as well. He made sure I had everything that was needed. Would definitely rent from him again.

Raymond was super friendly, and overall an awesome dude. He was very co-operative, and you can see he cares that you have a good shoot. The kit was as described, and worked great. A very pleasant experience, and would rent from him without hesitation.

Great communication and awesome service.

Raymond was easy to communicate with and the gear was in great condition. I'd definitely rent from him again.

Responsive, as advertised

Incredibly friendly, flexible and helpful.

Raymond's GH5s and Lenses kit was a perfect find for my project. The dual battery charger and included memory cards ensured I never ran out of power or media. Meet-up timing was flexible and convenient. Would rent from again!
