Where can I find a 16mm camera in UK?

Hello everyone,

I am shooting a music video next month in London and South East area, and myself and the director are very keen on shooting it on super 16mm. It is a low budget / self funded project so we want to find a cheap solution to using a 16mm camera. I have experience using the ARRI SR2 and SR3 but I am happy to use any 16mm camera that can do a minimum of 75fps. An ARRI 416 would be ideal but SR2/3 or Aaton would still do the trick!

Does anyone know any where I could hire a camera on the cheap or know of anybody who owns one that we could insure and offer 150 for a couple of days?

Many thanks!

Joseph Guy

Hey Joseph,

I have a friend in London who owns an Aaton LTR and another who owns an ARRI SR2. Shoot me an email (me at olliecraig dot com) and I'll put you in touch with them.

I'm looking for you. Ebay is a great site for this.

Jane, I didn't know you could find rentals on eBay. I look forward
to what you find.

Welcome to indietalk, James. I'm not in the UK but your question
sparked my interest so I did a little search. I found several places.
I'm sure you found them also. The "book rates" are always negotiable
and most of the places I found have rates very close to what you're
looking for. I hope chilipie's sources works out.
