    Hey guys,

    Just as the title says:

    Where can I hire photographic equipment in Kent?

    Specifically, I need to hire a DSLR for some magazine test photo-shoots.
    Trying to break into the market and figure I should go all-out with it. I
    have the shots lined up, I just need to get hold of a DSLR and get it into
    my digital portfolio. I'm in North Kent so anywhere around that area is
    best - been trying to find somewhere on the web but no luck.

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    Thanks for the tips guys... works out pretty expensive for digital! I can
    understand why though, considering the cost of the bodies...

    Think I might just shoot slide and scan for this one.

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    www.peak-imaging.co.uk can do some very high quality professional scans
    from 35m and large format- they are not cheap but a hell of a lot cheaper
    than hiring some top notch digital gear and lenses etc.

    IMHO even the good digital gear has still got a long way to match a half
    decent 35mm SLR.

    That's a good point actually, I usually send my slides off the Peak so I
    guess I could get them to burn them to disc in the process. Do they do a
    good job of colour correcting, etc? I often spend hours sorting out the
    levels in PS when I scan my own slides.

    I have never used anything other than the standard archive CD service which
    I have always found to be excellent.
    I bought a scanner myself and spent many a happy (?) hour trying to sort out
    all the various adjustments, in the end I though sod it and got Peak Imaging
    to do it - a much better (and quicker) option!
    I have never seen anything but praise for them on here, if there was a
    problem with them it would soon be spread all over the newsgroups.
