Holiday Giveaway from BorrowLenses.com

From lenses to camera bodies, audio, video, lighting and more, borrowing gear from BorrowLenses.com couldn’t be easier. Here’s how they describe the process: “Rent, shoot, return. You choose what you want and how long you want it, and we ship it to you on the date specified with a return label inside the box. When your rental is up you put the lens back in the box it came in, affix the return label and drop it off at FedEx. Once we receive the equipment we inspect it and assuming there’s no damage your rental is complete. Wasn’t that easy?” Very! Thanks Borrow Lenses!
