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.
With the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM lens, a maximum f/1.4 aperture model joins the Art Line of lenses. Developed using experience from the of the 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art and its 50mm f/1.4 companion, this lens benefits from such expertise and as a result has excellent imaging performance. Sagittal coma flare, chromatic aberration, distortion and vignetting have all been minimised to a barely perceptible level to give a best-in-class optical performance. Equally at home photographing a starry night, landscape or a dimly illuminated interior, this lens consistently produces results to be admired with excellent definition and consistency of brightness right into the corners of the frame.
Best in Class optical performance
Sagittal coma flare has been reduced by careful position of aspheric lens elements and adjustment of the angle of incidence of the light source. The result is better rendition (much less streaking) of point sources as you move away from the centre of the frame, making this lens ideal for photographing illuminations and for astrophotography.
Chromatic aberration is reduced by using both FLD and SLD low dispersion glass optics so that axial chromatic aberration is drastically reduced. The high anomalous dispersion of the FLD glass ensures that residual chromatic aberration (secondary spectrum) is also corrected which is not possible using conventional glasses.
Optional Sigma USB Dock
Using the Sigma USB Dock (available separately), you can update firmware as well as adjust parameters such as focus points and operation of the Full Time Manual Focus mode.
This lens uses intelligent construction choices for robustness and reliability. For example the lens hood incorporates rubber into the connected part and the focus switches have been redesigned. The lens also uses TSC (Thermally Stable Composite) which has similar thermal expansion characteristics to aluminium but has better elasticity and resistance to deformity compared with commonly used polycarbonate and glass composites often used in lens barrel construction. All Sigma Art lenses are evaluated using the latest A1 MTF measuring system for precise quality control and all are made in Japan.
This Art lens also has a rounded diaphragm for attractive bokeh and a tough brass made bayonet mount for years of trouble free service.
