New Hire Items available: CRLS C-move system, Aputure 60x and more

We are excited to be expanding the range of lighting and grip equipment available for hire via Cinehire. We’ve added new stands, lights, and more for you to check out. We’ve highlighted a few bits of kit that we think are particularly interesting below:

Aputure 60x LED

Want to try out the new Aputure LS 60x before it is generally released in the UK for sale? We have a unit available to hire now, from £18 / day. We also have a wide range of other Aputure lights and modifiers available to suit any size production.

CRLS C-move System

The Lightbridge CRLS is an innovative light modifier reflector system. It comes beautifully packaged up in an integral case and has some unique capabilities. The CRLS is not common in UK hire houses, and we are excited to offer it at a market-leading price.

Alongside these larger items, we have added lots of new smaller grip and lighting options. We also have the ability to crew your production with staff that know our kit inside out, at competitive prices. Please get in touch for more information.


A Guide to Club Photography

Taking photos in a club venue is widely regarded as a difficult challenge for most photographers, regardless of the level of one’s photographic ability, because of the constant changes in light. Unlike other event photography which typically has a constant light source which translates into exposure – you constantly need to adjust your settings on the move.

DJI Inspire 2 hire: The easy way to take your drone video to the next level

It’s easier than ever to incorporate drone video into your productions. With the recent changes to drone laws and hugely capable smaller drones such as the DJI Mavic 2 Pro what once took a dedicated team can now be integrated into your everyday filming kit. This has made standing out from the crowd harder than ever. As drone shots have become more common, they have lost some of their “wow” factor. This is where Inspire 2 hire can help you out.

The DJI Inspire 2 is a beast of a drone, in a completely different class to the Mavic and other similar drones. It has been used in everything from commercial shots to iconic Hollywood movies (check out the video below). Its key unique selling point is its super high quality camera that is able to be independently controlled from the flight of the drone itself. We’ll run through these abilities in more detail below to help you understand how Inspire 2 hire can take your production to the next level!

Our guide to how the new 2021 drone regulations will affect drone filming

Drone laws in the UK have been settled, if complex, for the past few years. To make money from drone flights you have needed a permission for commercial operations (PfCO) from the CAA. The PfCO, even with price drops recently, is an expensive and involved qualification, requiring practical exams and writing an operations manual. This is all set to change from the 1st of January 2021 though, with new processes and qualifications coming in.

There are a lot of in-depth articles out there that explain these changes in excellent detail. It’s easy to get lost in the maze of acronyms though, so we’ve put together 5 general changes you will notice, as well as a rundown of changes for popular drones.

New Equipment: Easyrig Vario 5 with Stabil arm and Easy Tilt Bar Hire now available

We’re excited to announce that we have the Easyrig Vario 5 with Stabil arm and Easy Tilt Bar available for hire in Nottingham with delivery around the UK available on request.

We have been fans (and users of) the Vario 5’s little brother, the minimax, for quite a few years now. The max weight on the minimax of 7kg can be limiting for usage with heavier rigs on gimbals though.

The Stabil Arm is an adjustable damper that smooths out walking motions, allowing for even smoother shots using the rig.

The Easy Tilt Bar is a new innovation from Easyrig that makes the usage of gimbals easier, allowing for the gimbal to be tilted back easily with the weight of the camera rig still being taken by the Easyrig.
