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.
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.
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 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.
Four aspherical glass elements reduce distortion throughout the zoom range, achieving superb image quality right across the frame. Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) and Super UD lens elements guard against coloured fringing along high-contrast edges.
World’s widest angle ultra-wide zoom with 11-24mm focal length.*
f/4 fixed aperture, high-performance standard zoom L-series lens.
Uses four aspherical lens elements (including the world’s largest diameter ground aspherical lens within a photographic lens) and UD and Super UD lens elements, ensuring the highest image quality.
Canon unique SWC and new ASC anti-reflective coatings.
Fluorine coating on the lens surfaces to prevent dirt sticking to lens elements.
Silent, fast autofocus using a ring type USM.
A nine-blade circular aperture creates beautiful out-of-focus highlights.
Full-time manual focusing.
Minimum focusing distance 0.28m (at 24mm zoom position).
Highly resistant to dust and water allowing shooting in the harshest conditions.
* Excluding fisheye lenses.
ADVANCED LENS COATINGS
The EF11-24mm f/4L USM features multiple lens coatings, which minimise the internal reflections that can cause flare and degrade image quality. Canon’s unique Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) is applied to two of the lens’ elements, while a new technology – Air Sphere Coating (ASC) – is used on a third element.
The new Air Sphere Coating has been developed by Canon to minimise reflections and flare. This is a hybrid coating consisting of nano particles that trap capsule-like air between the ASC layer and conventional multi-layer coatings. The Air Sphere particles form a super low reflective coat on the surface of the lens element to reduce reflection and act as a ‘crash mat’ to slow light down to roughly the same speed as light travels through glass, thus preventing the cause of reflection.
Both the SWC and ASC coatings work by slowing down light gradually as it passes from air to glass. Abrupt changes in speed can lead to reflections, which spoil image quality. By slowing down light gradually before it passes through the lens, such negative effects are minimised.
NEW OPTICAL SYSTEM
The EF11-24mm f/4L USM uses a completely new patented lens design. The optical design features 16 lens elements in 11 groups with a three group zoom and rear focus. The lens’ use of four aspherical lenses (including the world’s largest diameter ground aspherical lens within a photographic lens and three glass-molded lenses) helps to control distortion, keeping it at a very low rate throughout the entire zoom range. The inclusion of both a UD lens and a Super UD lens minimises chromatic aberration that tends to occur mainly around the edges at the wide-angle setting, as well as eliminating colour blurring around the edges of the subject. This ensures high-quality images with high levels of resolution and contrast.
SWIFT, SILENT AUTOFOCUS
The EF11-24mm f/4L USM uses a combination of a ring type USM to achieve high-speed AF. For EOS-1D X, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R users the lens belongs to group I for AF point configuration.
Due to the weight of the front optical group a new mechanical design was required, to support the weight but still ensure a smooth focus and zoom mechanism. The EF11-24mm f/4L USM features the same level of waterproof and dustproof construction as the EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM and EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lenses. The mount, the switch panel, zoom ring and focusing ring are all designed to prevent dust and moisture from getting into the lens, making it suitable for taking pictures even in harsh conditions.
The focal length is wider than any full-frame lens released so far with the exception of fisheye lenses, which tend to distort images. The EF11-24mm f/4L USM offers the widest angle of any current fixed focal non-fisheye lens, whilst offering the flexibility of a zoom. Producing a lens design that offers such a wide angle with little distortion and constant aperture is a feat of design and engineering made possible through Canon’s excellence in optics.
ULTIMATE ELEMENT PROTECTION
Fluorine coatings are applied to front and rear elements allowing the lens’ optics to be kept cleaner by the non-stick properties of the coating, which prevent dust and water drops adhering to the lens elements and make cleaning easier.
SLIP-IN FILTER HOLDER
As the front lens element is very large and has a high level of curvature, filters cannot be fitted to the front of the lens but instead a slip-in filter holder for cut gelatin filters is provided at the rear of the lens.
