OWNER NOTES

Characterized by its unique and advanced optical composition, the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM is a wide-angle L-series prime featuring a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture to suit working in difficult lighting conditions. Its optical design incorporates a Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics element; a specially developed element that helps to nearly eliminate chromatic aberrations and color fringing for notable clarity and color accuracy. In addition to this, an ultra-low dispersion element and two aspherical elements are also featured to further control various aberrations and distortion for great sharpness and resolution. Individual elements also feature a Sub Wavelength Coating to suppress flare and ghosting for high contrast and color fidelity when working in harsh and backlit conditions.

Besides the optical attributes, this lens sports a ring-type USM for quick and quiet autofocus performance and full-time manual focus override. Its durable physical construction is dust- and moisture-sealed, and a fluorine coating has been added to the exposed elements to guard against fingerprints and smudging.

Tiffen 4 x 4" Water White ND filters:
The Tiffen 4 x 4" Water White ND 1.8 Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing a 6-stop exposure reduction. This 1.8 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By increasing your aperture or slowing your exposure time, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

Rode VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Shockmount
Offering lower noise, higher sensitivity, and more adjustable settings than the VideoMic, the Rode VideoMic Pro camera-mount shotgun microphone is ideal for mobile journalists, vloggers, budget filmmakers, and run-and-gun shooters looking for a cost-effective way to step up to the next level in quality.

Zacuto BLACKMAGIC 4K POCKET CINEMA CAMERA CAGE

Super easy and very flexible - was great to rent from Ken! He responded really quickly to any question I had and I would definitely rent from him again. Also the equipment was in perfect condition.

Very helpful, quick to respond, and his lenses are super clean. Would highly recommend. Thank you, Ken!

Ken was fantastic to work with. I was in a time crunch when a piece of my gear failed. He overnighted me the equipment the same day I contacted him and I was back up and rolling the next day.

Great equipment. Ken was very helpful.

Ken was great to work with. Very helpful and responsive. I look forward to renting his slider again.
