Camera lenses can be an investment, and renting gives you the opportunity to test them out in ‘real life’ settings before committing to a purchase. Though there’s always a market for second-hand gear, it’s easier – and often, cheaper – to simply return rented camera lenses if they don’t suit your style. At Ted’s, our 14-day exchange policy applies to our rental program, too, so you can swap your lenses for something else if you’ve played around with them a little and you know they’re not going to work out.
Pro Tip: Schedule your rental to line up with a trip or event where you’ll be using the camera lenses a lot. This will help you to get a feel of the camera lenses, and how they perform in different lighting situations and for different subjects.
