Prime LensEF 85mm f1.2L II ES-79II - 72mm

Prime lenses are significantly sharper than zoom lenses. That is due to the fact that they don’t have extra glass inside that moves in order to zoom. As a result, you get a better quality photographs due to less diffraction. Prime lenses are available for rental in all lengths and varieties.

Rent Canon EF prime lenses.  The Canon 50mm Lens is the ideal example of a Prime Lens, featuring a fixed focal length while also offering superior optical quality, smaller size and weight, and a wide maximum aperture.

Tilt Shift Lens

TS-E-17mm-f4.0LTilt Shift Lenses such as the Canon EF TS-E 17mm are a specialized lens type that achieves optical magic through using tilt and shift functions that most cameras lack. This type of lens is perfect for creating miniature scenes or capturing tall architecture without distortion. They do this by rotating the focal plane of the image inorder to stimulate a shallow depth of field, causing vertical lines to run parallel to the edge of the image. Perfect for photographic architecture, or for accentuating convergence to create a uniquely artistic look.

Telephoto Lens EF-300mm-f2.8L

Telephoto Lens is a specific type of a long-focus lens in which the physical length of the lens is shorter than the focal length, allowing you to photograph a subject that is far away or magnifying the subject in your frame. Like a wide angle lens, a telephoto lens “sees” beyond what the human eye can and so draws more of the scene into the shot.

This makes telephoto lenses like the Canon EF 300 great for capturing sporting events and wildlife without having to get close. They create a beautifully blurred background to place all the attention on the subject. Additionally, a telephoto lens can create a stunning portrait.

Wide Angle LensEF 14mm f/2.8L II Gelatin only Wide Angle Lens Rentals

If you’re looking for a lens wider than 50mm full frame, Wide Angle Lenses such as the Canon EF 35mm is the selection for you! With a short focal length and wide field of view, the wide angle lens has a wider field of vision than the human eye and so can capture the periphery of a scene. This makes it ideal for landscapes as well as full indoor shots, where the wide angle lens works to enhance perspective and add depth. Wide angle lenses draw more of the scene into each shot, thereby drawing the viewer in too! Pro Gear Orlando hosts a wide range of top-of-the-line Wide Angle Lens rentals, available at daily or weekly at prices suited for all your production needs.

Sony E-Mount LensSony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 Lens

Sony E-Mount Lens Rentals such as the Sony FE 24-70mm f 2.8 Lens are perfect for E-Mount Mirrorless Camera pairing. These lenses are able to maintain consistency in zoom performance while using selective focus techniques to benefit in low-light working conditions.

Q- What is a 35mm lens good for?

A- The 35mm lens is an old standard that offers affordability without sacrificing quality.  They also have big apertures which allows good depth of field and the ability to shoot in low light conditions.  Wide angle lenses are much more forgiving with depth-of-field as well.

Q- What are 50mm lenses best for?

A- 50mm lenses, especially those from Canon and Sony, are very affordable for the starting photographer/videographer. They are small, fast, and compact, but also offer precise and sharp image quality. These lenses also provide a more creative aspect in shooting, as they have a fixed focal length that requires the photographer move and re-frame rather than relying on the camera zoom.

Q- What is 85mm lens good for?

A- Looking for a unique perspective in your camera work? The 85mm lens is a must try, especially for portraits. Such lenses are able to maintain closeness to the subject without any distortion, while also producing sharp details and selective focus that is very eye-pleasing. 85mm lenses are best for headshots.

Q- What camera lenses should a beginner have?

A- Unfortunately, there is no universal lens that works perfect for everyone. Figuring out which camera lens(es) best suite you is a part of the adventure into beginner photography. What is most important is to narrow down the requirements for your job. Consider your needed focal length, aperture, zoom and camera capability, and finally the price that best suites your budget.
