CameraLends: A Peer-to-Peer Gear Rental Network for Photographers on the Road

Taking all of your photography gear on the road with you can be a burden, not to mention risky. But even if you don’t want to break your back carrying it all or risk having it stolen, your options are limited. Not all cities have shops that rent out gear, and smaller shops may not have the gear you want and/or need.

Thankfully, there’s a new peer-to-peer solution in town that should greatly increase your odds of finding the gear you need, no matter where you’re headed: it’s called CameraLens.

CameraLends is a camera and gear rental service created by Adam Derewecki. It offers beginners, intermediates and pros alike a chance to find the gear they need at a reasonable price when they’re on the road. The service does this by bringing together a community of photographers willing to rent their gear out to you when they’re not busy using it.

By allowing photographers to rent out their gear when they’re not shooting, CameraLends offers a way to make an extra buck. And by letting the photographers themselves set the rental prices, photogs-in-need might find the right gear at a better price than if they visited the local shop — especially if it’s the only shop in the area with a rental program.

Right now, you can find everything from lenses, to underwater housings, to camera bodies available for rent daily, weekly or even monthly (where available). And if you’re looking to do a particular type of shooting, users can craft situation-specific packages like the ones you see above.

It’s a great idea that will only get better as more photographers join the fray. To check out the service for yourself, post some of your own gear, or find the perfect lens or package for your next out-of-town shoot, head over to CameraLends by clicking here.
