No complaints here, Donald was very helpful in getting things set up. Would certainly rent from again.

Super flexible with drop off and pick up. Would definitely rent from him again and recommend.

Manfrotto Monopod

November 2017

Flexible pickup, equipment exactly as expected, there was also a gorillapod (which came in handy). Thanks!

Professional, kind, and flexible about delivery and pickup. The connections on both the power cable and the FireWire cable were both finicky, but not a problem as long as you didn’t disturb them during transfer. Would definitely rent from Don again.

Don was flexible with meeting times and really nice! Solid lender :)

Don was great to rent from. Extremely flexible with my timing, extremely cooperative with my not one but TWO rental extensions, and just an all around easygoing guy to communicate with for rental needs.

The Sony DSR-11 was pretty terrific as well. It was a little on the dusty side at first, but I was able to clean the heads thanks to some great YouTube tutorials out there, and captured almost 80 hours of video going back to the early 2000's. If you get the horizontal lines or the tape gets stuck as the first few did for me, the process of cleaning it can be found via searching "clean Sony DSR-11 Deck" on Google, and getting a few easy to find electronics cleaning products. Also, remember that the maximum resolution for DV is 720x480, so don't expect any crystal clear cinematic masterpieces here. That's something I totally forgot until watching my pixelated high school self on screen.

!!! One major thing to note is that Adobe Premiere does not currently support DV Capture as it did in previous editions. Your options are either Final Cut X, iMovie, Quicktime Player (which was actually my personal favorite as it was easiest and had the best guaranteed quality with limited timecode errors), or getting ahold of an older machine / virtual machine with Final Cut 7 or any Adobe Premiere iteration pre-2015. !!!

Don is super kind, accommodating and easy to work with. The camera he loaned me was in great condition and worked exactly as one would expect. No surprises. Thanks to Don for a great KS experience. I'd not only rent from him again but would highly recommend him to anyone else considering it.
