How to Book your rental: 

Simply select your desired rental length using the drop down menu and add to your basket and checkout. Please email us the dates which you wish your rental to start on and we will ship to you via Royal Mail Special Delivery for delivery before 1PM on the day that your rental starts. Please note that if you will need the camera early in the morning then you are advised to start the rental period the day before. 

Requirements
Deposit

For all first time rentals we will take a security deposit in addition to the cost of rental to cover the cost of the camera. This will be returned to your card once the unit has been returned to us safely and in good condition. The refund of your deposit is processed the same day as we receive your return and will take 3-5 days to show back on your card. Example you rent the camera for 1 day. We take initial payment for the rental. We then email you an invoice for the remainder of the list price of the camera. You return the camera to us without issues and we refund the deposit back to your card. 

Existing customers will be subject to lesser security deposits of £850 per rental. Alternatively existing customers may opt to avail insurance for the rental which will cost in the region of £20 and be subject to £500 excess fee. If you opt to take out insurance then we will bill you after you have booked your rental for the cost of the insurance premium and the fully refundable £500 excess insurance charge. Once the camera is returned in satisfactory condition the £500 excess charge will be refunded back to your card.

We will email you a separate electronic invoice to pay the security deposit after you place your order. Your booking will only be confirmed once this payment has been completed. 

ID
For all rentals we require two forms of ID. 
Passport or EU driving license and 1 of the following
Latest bank statement
Latest Utility bill 
These must show the same address as your payment method and delivery address. 

We use an ID verification service to verify the validity of all ID. 

Please email your identification to us along with your required booking dates after placing your order. 

What happens if you damage the camera during use? 

If you return the camera to us with damage or missing items then we will deduct this from your security deposit. Damage will be evaluated by our independent authorised service centre and will be charged at the cost price. 

We do allow for usual wear and tear but please treat the equipment as if it were your own. Minor scratches and nicks happen sometimes but it is our sole right to determine these matters and by placing an order you hereby accept our terms and conditions and agree to adhere to the findings of our service centre.

Returns

Returns must be sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery or a signed and tracked courier service with appropriate insurance. You are responsible for the goods until we have received them back. We cannot be held liable for any loss in transit.


20.2 Megapixel Full Frame CMOS Sensor

A 20.2 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with high latitude, developed and made by Canon, reduces noise at both high and low ISO speeds. This exceptional sensor features gapless microlenses to ensure high image quality under all shooting conditions. Gapless lenses mean that no light is lost between each pixel as all the light falling on the sensor is funneled into the pixels below. This improves light gathering capacity and increases the signal-to-noise ratio.

With increase in the number of recording pixels, compared to the EOS-1D X, the 20.2 MP in EOS-1D X Mark II enable more cropping abilities while still retaining exceptional level of detail. At the same time, the increased exposure latitude allows compositions to be over and/or under exposed without much loss of details.

High ISO Sensitivity
A high ISO range offers a wider range of shooting opportunities. Speed is of the essence in any professional situation, and greater ISO flexibility is particularly useful when shooting in low-light and near-dark locations. How high an ISO speed you can shoot at and yet still retain critical image quality has always been the big quest, which is where EOS-1D X Mark II scores. With a top native ISO speed of 51200, the EOS-1D X Mark II can be expanded further still to ISO 409600 for shooting in very dark locations. And flexibility doesn't stop there. Even in Auto ISO mode shutter speeds up to 1/8000sec are possible, as is exposure compensation in Manual mode.

In-camera Lens Aberration Correction
When the original EOS-1D X launched, it included peripheral brightness correction and chromatic aberration correction functions, while a further distortion correction function was included in the EOS 7D Mark II. Evolving these in-camera processing options, the EOS-1D X Mark II includes these along with a new diffraction correction function that is applied to JPEG images during shooting. This function allows photographers to work at smaller apertures without any concerns over image quality degradation caused by diffraction.

In the past it was necessary to register lens correction data using EOS Utility1 software. In EOS-1D X Mark II, however, the peripheral brightness, chromatic aberration correction and distortion correction lens data is already stored in camera2, removing the need to correct lens aberrations in JPEGs via a computer. This feature also accepts data from any future lenses that have aberration correction data built-in, making it unnecessary to register data using EOS Utility.

Built-in Digital Lens Optimizer
With the EOS-1D X, Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software provided solutions for correcting various lens and image aberrations. On the EOS-1D X Mark II, these correction functions are built into the camera with a dedicated Digital Lens Optimizer function.

Digital Lens Optimizer imitates lens performance, with a series of mathematical functions replicating each stage of the journey of light through the optical path. Using this information, the Digital Lens Optimizer can correct a range of typical optical aberrations and loss of resolution caused by a camera’s low pass filter, by applying an inverse function to each shot to take the image nearer to how the scene appears to the naked eye. This creates detailed, high-quality images providing photographers great flexibility of working with large or small apertures without worrying about aberrations and diffractions.

While the lens aberration corrections can be applied to JPEG files as the images are being shot, Digital Lens Optimizer is applied during in-camera RAW processing.

Fine Detail Picture Style
The ‘Fine Detail’ Picture Style originally developed for the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R has been included in the EOS-1D X Mark II to maximise the amount of detail captured by the cameras’ 20.2 Megapixel sensor. This setting prioritises gradation of tones and emphasises fine detail. Fine Detail is intended for images that will be used straight from the camera, without post-production.

Fine Detail Picture Style features three adjustable sharpening parameters, which give more control over the sharpening performed in-camera on JPEG files. The parameters are similar to those found in the Unsharp Mask filter in Adobe Photoshop and Canon’s DPP software.

The ‘Strength’ slider adjusts how much sharpening is applied to edges in the image. The ‘Fineness’ slider determines the size of the details that are sharpened, move it to the left to sharpen smaller details. The ‘Threshold’ slider specifies how much contrast there needs to be in a part of the picture before it is considered an edge and sharpened. At low settings even subtle edges can be sharpened.

AWB: Ambience Priority/White Priority
The EOS-1D X Mark II features a choice of Auto White Balance (AWB) settings that take a different approach to artificial light. ‘Ambience Priority’ aims to retain some of the warm colour tones from artificial light sources in order to preserve some of the atmosphere of a scene, similar to the conventional AWB setting on other EOS cameras, while ‘White Priority’ eliminates most of the warmth from tungsten lighting and tries to give colour-neutral images where possible.
