The world of photography has definitely evolved from the age of black and white photos to capturing something that’s beyond humans capability, namely taking a picture of the space or an aerial shot from the sky. A lot of variety has been added to photography and as we’re moving forward in time, more new cameras are born. Not only that, camera rental is also doable in this day and age.

At this moment, we already have drones and 8K resolution cameras available and they are definitely not cheap to get. Professional photographers or someone who does photography as a job most probably will get their hands on them but for newcomers, those types of cameras are not very much affordable.

That is why some people opt for renting instead. Not only can they try it before actually buying it, they can also get it at a cheaper price for the same product. On RentSmart, we make this possible by providing various authentic camera rental from trusted owners. Today we’re gonna delve into the 5 most popular categories for photography that people are renting on at RentSmart.

Coming at number 2, let’s take a look at DSLR, a short term for digital single-lens reflex camera. Probably the most common camera that  professional photographers use for work. They offer very decent shots and they’ve got quite a number of features available. Most convenient one would be the interchangeable lens. They can freely switch lenses whenever they want. Photographers usually have multiple lenses to suit one occasion and with multiple lenses they can come up with varied results for the pictures.

An alternative to DSLR cameras is mirrorless cameras (MILC). What differentiates them is basically mirrorless cameras have electronic viewfinder instead of a reflex mirror or optical viewfinder that a traditional DSLR would have. Features-wise, there’s not much difference between but what separates them apart is that mirrorless ones are lighter, quieter and smaller. They are the most typical camera you would see anywhere and widely used for multiple purposes. We have ranges of brands when it comes to cameras such as Canon, Nikon, and Sony.

1. Action camera

Apart from it being extremely durable, it is also waterproof! This is why an avid adventurer or a wanderlust would have at least one action camera with them.

On the other hand, people who are not would rent action cameras instead since it’s cheaper and are not planning to use it again anytime soon.
