Rental Showcase: New Lenses Available at Moving Picture

Moving Picture has been listening to requests and working hard to bolster our rental inventory to meet the wants and needs of today’s shooter.  We are excited to announce the arrival of some new glass that you might be interested in.

PL Mount

Canon CN-E 30-300mm, T2.95-3.7, PL Mount
Moving Picture welcomes the new Canon CN-E 30-300mm PL studio zoom lens to our South Forida rental inventory. The Canon has created a nice package with this lens. The 30-300mm range is broad enough to get a full head-to-toe wide shot, then zoom in for a close up from about 10 feet from the camera. Addditionally, it’s lightweight design (only 13lbs) is half the weight of a Optimo 24-290 lens, which helps with rigging, support, and usage. This lens has a very smooth non-breathing 300 degree focus rotation and witness marks on both sides of the barrel.


Fujinon 19-90mm Cabrio, T2.9, PL Mount
The Cabrio is a wonderfully versatile zoom lens, seemingly tailor made for documentary style shooting. The Fujinon Cabrio PL lens has all the best qualities of a broadcast zoom lens while retaining the dramatic shallow depth of field of 35mm format cinema lenses. It’s compact size, light weight, and integrated rocker servo motors for focus, iris, and zoom control make it perfect for handheld ENG style shooting. The Fujinon 19-90 Cabrio is the perfect companion to the Sony PMW-F3 camera (or our new PMW-F5 coming in February). The electronic shoe in the F3’s PL mount powers the Cabrio’s servo system eliminating the need for external power.

EF Mount

Canon 16-35mm, f/2.8 II USM, EF Mount
Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 II USM is the widest lens we’ve found that will work on the Canon 5D without a vignette messing with your shot mojo. This lens was designed from the ground up to work with full frame sensors. It’s convenient wide-angle zoom range compliments the Canon 24-70 nicely.

Canon 24-70mm, f/2.8 II USM, EF Mount_Moving Picture Rental
Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 II USM has been freshly redesigned by Canon. The new design boasts sharper detail, specifically in the edges and corners. The 24-70mm range has been the workhorse of our Canon fleet of lenses for some time now, and we’re quite pleased to see the design facelift.




Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro IS USM, EF Mount
Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro IS USM is a beautiful lens in either still or video mode. And a first for Canon, is the integration of their Image Stabilization circuity into a macro lens. You can even operate this lens in a handheld configuration and pull off some wonderfully creative shots.
