I am a NYC based Filmmaker and DP with a 20 year career as an actor. Although making money out of rentals is important to me, I am more into building relationships with other filmmakers and the great gear that gets posted here.

Ricardo is a professional and helped us in a pinch! Very flexible and understanding of our hectic schedule. We plan to rent again with him very soon!

Great rental. Easy pickup and drop off. Gear worker perfectly.

Cool guy + extremely helpful.
It was a pleasure doing business With Ricardo.

Great equipment and exceptional renter. Would rent from Ricardo again!

Ricardo was very thorough and helpful. Would absolutely recommend renting from him.

Awesome gear and Ricardo is an amazing renter. Kit was immaculate and Ricardo was super helpful. Definitely renting this again.

Can't say enough good things about Ricardo and the gear. Gear was all in awesome shape and worked precisely as promised. That said, even with Ricardo's exhaustive explanation, don't expect to remotely conquer Magic Lantern in a weekend (OK, maybe a dedicated weekend, but not my weekend). He explained everything to me, and the gear was tight. What more can you ask? This is a super versatile kit that could literally be used for everything (you're most limited by the storage capcity because the RAW files are big). ML Raw did not let me down. I may suggest renting it with a prime because this L lens isn't my fave in terms of sharpness, but if you just want to get a feel for ML, you'll be more than fine. Don't hesitate. This kit rocks.

Great rental, everything was perfect, great communication
