Best LED panel for your shoot! #Dracast #LED #videoproduction

Now, I'm not all facts and figures and knowledge, but what I do know is that I love a light! And I don't just love this light because I see the light, I love the light because I saw the light and now have the best light.... What the hell am I talking about? I don't know. But I do know this: our Dracast 1K bi-color LED will have you dumping your old LED for this funnier, sexier, more fit LED. It's slim, it's bright, and it'll pump out beautiful 1K tungsten, daylight, or in-between all day on a single V-Mount battery. We took it down to "The Wine Cellar" at the Rio here in Vegas, and after we got sauced, we took it elsewhere and coupled it with our Canon C300 Mark II, and made beautiful motion imagery that was as dazzling as your next project will be when you rent our Dracast 1K bi-color LED, and any one of our amazing camera-things. F11 Rentals is working hard to become the best video production rental gear company in Las Vegas- and we want you to come see why.

Decimate Your Problems #lasvegasvideorentalgear #decimator #videoproduction

When you're getting mixed signals (we've all been there), it's confusing; you're sitting there going, "Wait. What? Who?" There's someone special out there for everyone- but sometimes, it's not the someone you thought or hoped for. What do you do in this situation? Settle for the hand you were dealt!? Absolutely not!!

Now, we have the power and technology to take that "less-than-desirable" situation, take that "mixed signal", and turn it into what you want it to be. Introducing the DECIMATOR MD-HX MINI!!! No more awkward HDMI when you wanted SDI, or vice-versa. There's a built-in scaler, and if you're thinking "I'm more of a 23.98 guy/gal, not 29.97" well, you can change that too! To top it all off, it's compact and portable; it's the best thing since sliced bread! There is so much to say and type, I'm just going to send you to the page, here!

Our lenses stand apart #schneidercineprimes #lasvegasvideoproduction #lasvegasrentalgear

We don't want to brag.... just kidding, yes we do. There's nothing better than having better equipment, prices, and rippling hamstrings than the other guy, and letting everyone know it. We here at F11 Rentals aren't afraid of a displaying a little confidence every once and a while (not like that scaredy-cat over at FiveSix Production's blog). So, when we saw our beloved Schneider Cinema Primes out on the tennis courts in sunny Las Vegas, we couldn't help but want to shout it from the rooftops. The incomparable Clayton Moore, of CMDP was nice enough to show off this setup with the gorgeous 50mm lens. I'll let you compose yourself, as I'm sure you're just as giddy as we are, and when you've settled down enough, give us a shout, and we'll get you hooked up with one or all of the Schneider's. We can't wait to hear from you and help you see just why we're the best Las Vegas video production rental house.

The Best Way to Set Your Convention Apart #longbeachvideoproduction #lasvegasvideoproduction

We all know that there is so much that goes into putting on a great meeting, convention, etc. Regardless of size, there are a few things you can do to really make your event stand out. Besides the obvious of having a good venue, great content, and making sure your attendees take away as much as they can... what about remembering and capturing those priceless and usually impromptu moments/gems? Capturing a killer keynote, celebrity appearance, dynamic break-out sessions, and attendee reactions all go in to making a great video that can accomplish just that. You never know what amazing ideas will sprout from a small, hour long panel discussion or afternoon team-building exercise. Having the right gear and right team to capture those moments can be priceless; and we here at F11 Rentals are happy to provide Las Vegas, Nevada and Long Beach, California with the best gear and crews to make your convention really stand out.

Because Everyone Love's A One-Upper #photography #camera #worldrecord

Whatever baboon writes most of the blogs over at FiveSix Productions is a real baboon... Wait. Whoever writes the blogs over at FiveSix Productions is a real clown. Those blog posts are not nearly as eloquent, sophisticated, intelligent, and handsome with rippling muscles as the ones are over at F11 Rentals. *BURN!* So, they posted about a stupid picture of stars, or something childish. Well, I'll do ya' one better. This here photo is the current world record of distance landscape photography. This single-exposure photograph was taken from the Pyrenees Mountains along the boarders of France, Spain, and Andorra, of the French Alps near Italy and Switzerland. Yes... this photo was taken all the way across the southern part of France. The furthest discernible peak is a staggering 443 kilometers away, for us Imperialist Americans, that's 275.267 miles. That's the same as standing on top of the Stratosphere in Las Vegas, and taking a photograph of the Hollywood Hills! You're chilling in Las Vegas, Nevada, taking a photograph of Los Angeles, California! For our East Coast friends, it's like standing in Providence, Rhode Island (watch for mafia dudes!) and snapping a photo of ol Billy Penn atop Philadelphia City Hall! Now, I'm not one for so much math and numbers, I leave that to the smarties; so, go to the webpage that chronicles the spectacular achievement here. Go right meow! And, if you're in the mood to give it a try, all you need to do is come to your favorite Las Vegas video production rental company... not VER... us! Jeez. F11 Rentals, and get our Canon 5D Mark II, or RED Epic Dragon if you ball out, and our 100-400mm lens with two doublers, and get to work.

This Camera is Great in Low Light Situations @canonusa #c300mkii #lasvegasvideoproduction

Now, it's no Sony a7S, but the Canon C300 Mark II can hold it's own at higher ISO's (and it looks way cooler). You don't have to worry about grain or muted blacks, no, no, that's a thing of the past. With an ISO range of 160 - 25600 (100 - 102400 When the sensitivity is expanded), you can really push the limits, especially given the Mark II's 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm 16:9 CMOS sensor that supports 4K (DCI) recording with a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. In layman's terms: it's a dang-fine ol' camera to make your movie pictures with! We challenge you to rent one of our here fine rigs, and see just how creative you can be in a low light situations. For all of your Las Vegas video production rental gear needs, look no further than F11 Rentals.

A Lighting Bouquet #cineo #arri #setlighting #cinema #nbasummerleague

F11 Rentals exists joyfully in a state of "Thunderdome"- what does that mean? Let me explain. There are no rules, there are no guidelines, and we have been known to share our packages with ANYONE willing to pay. All that being said, we still have some pretty high standards, and want to be the best at... whatever it is that we're doing. Recently, we got to flex our Thunderdome-muscle and send a huge grip and electric package out for some fun with the NBA summer league. Our Cineo HS2's worked seamlessly with our Arri Tungsten lights and even some lekos for good measure. I'm not going to waste your time with how amazing our Kino 4-banks and Divas were... I think you already know. Oh, and, if you're worried about all that gorgeous 3200K light spilling all over the set, don't worry, we've got flags, and floppies, and frames, and all that good stuff... unless, you want the chaos!

F11 Rentals Has a New Set of Wheels #americangrip #videoproduction

Life on these Las Vegas video production sets moves pretty fast, if you can't keep up, you'll find yourself left behind. We here at F11 Rentals know it's important to work hard, but also, smart; that's why we upgraded some of our favorite American Grip stands for maximum velocity and maneuverability. We added wheels to our Dana Dolly stands, as well as a set for our Combo and Mombo Combo stands. With these wheels, gone are the days when you needed big, burly men and women with rippling glutes and pecks to hoof these heavy stands around set. Now, you can have whichever fragile weakling you can find to simply push the stands to their new location. On top of all that, they're removable, so if you missed your workout at Planet Fitness, feel free to take them off and really hammer away at your glutes and core. So, for your next Las Vegas video production rental gear order, throw on  some of these wheeled stands, heck, even if you don't need them, they'll be a good time.

F11 Rentals Is Melting!

We all know it's hot 'round these here parts- it's the desert southwest. Phoenix, Palm Springs, Yuma, Las Vegas... all, very hot; I mean, just an hour away is a place called Death Valley. This last week however, has been especially tremendous, as we were offered a piece of Las Vegas history when we tied a daily high of 117℉. So, what do we here at F11 Rentals do when it gets so hot- well, we keep working, preferably either in the back of our grip van (doors closed to reduce ventilation) or directly in the sun shine. Our mantra is, if you're going to do something, do it all the way, that's why we happily sent one of our awesome Canon C300 Mark II's over to the amazing pool at Caesars Palace. Now, before you get all critical and finger point-y, we were totally over dressed, and didn't even sample the refreshing beverages. We did snap a photo of the fun, just to document the occasion. So, if you'd like to get out and enjoy some video production work in this scorching heat, give F11 Rentals a shout, and we'll get you set up with the best Las Vegas video production rental gear available.

Gas, Grass, or Glass... No One Rides For Free!

It was a beautiful, sunny day in Hollywoodland, California; F11 Rental's proprietor was cruising back to Las Vegas, when he spotted a stranger on the side of the road. This stranger had his bindle and bowler hat, and was sepia in tone. With his free hand, the stranger motioned eastward with his thumb, hoping for a ride through the hot and desolate Mojave Desert. Perhaps feeling bad for the stranger, our proprietor pulled to the side of the road, while all other vehicles zoomed past the beleaguered man. 

The proprietor rolled his window down, "Where you heading?" "How far you going?" the stranger inquired. The proprietor chuckled, "Well, I'm headed to Vegas, but, the ride isn't free." The stranger looked a bit perplexed. "Gas, grass, or glass; no one rides for free." the proprietor said confidently. The stranger thought a moment, then, with a twinkle in his eye, reached into his bindle and pulled out six Schneider-KREUZNACH Cine-Xenar III prime lenses, "Will these get me to Vegas?" The proprietor grinned, "Saddle up, partner."

So, now we have an 18mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 75mm, and 95mm Schneider-KREUZNACH Cine-Xenar III lens- and they should be available for your rental enjoyment soon.

Holy Guacamole, It's Busy! #videoproduction #gripgear #greenscreen

Spring is a busy season for Las Vegas video production, and the same goes for rental houses. The kiddos are in school, studying, or Tweeting, or whatever they do these days... And, mom and dad are jet-bound for various conferences across the country. One of the busiest conference and expo towns in America is right here: fabulous Las Vegas, NV. We here at F11 Rentals are all about teamwork and taking care of our clients. Such was the situation last week, when the boss happily volunteered his time after hours for a delivery to one of our dear friends turned clients on the UNLV campus. We kept our spirits high, and the gear even higher as we delivered on time (as far as we could tell) with smiles on our faces (to distract from the bags under our eyes). If you're in need of the best video production rental gear in Las Vegas, look no further than your amigos here at F11 Rentals. Adios.

F11 Rentals Checks Out New Cars!

Last week, F11 Rentals sent a beloved Canon C300 Mark II over to the Wynn and Encore Resorts where some shiny new cars were being unveiled to some eager spectators. There were pans, tilts, and rack focus action as the super-fast 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm 16:9 CMOS sensor captured all the action. Coupled with superb Canon L-Series lenses, and an able bodied DP, the footage came out great, and the client was more than happy. Bonus: there were also some celebrities floating around- which is always exciting! For your next Las Vegas video production, look no further than F11 Rentals for the best Las Vegas video rental gear.

F11 Rentals Enjoys A Sure Thing

F11 Rentals knows that it's tough out there, and we need you to know that we understand, and we're here for you. That's why we've invested in the Action and Target Modules for our Edelkrone SliderPlus Pro. Math is almost as scary as audio, and it's as useful as snow at a BBQ, that's why Edelkrone has taken almost all math and thinking out of slide moves and time-lapse photography.

In all seriousness, a lot of times, artists want and need to move quickly when inspiration and opportunity strike, and the fine, intelligent folks across the pond at Edelkrone have created amazing pieces of gear to accompany the Edelkrone SliderPlus to enable accurate, precise, and guaranteed slide moves, time-lapses, and everything in between. The intelligent software does all the math and calculations for you! We cannot wait to get the gear out to test it and learn all about it so we can pass the knowledge and gear off to you. We'll let you know when it's available for rent.

New Cases!

We love our Cineo HS2 remote phosphor lights so much, we went out and got some custom cases designed and built just for them! We employed the help of Jason Cases, and they hooked us up with some rugged, durable, customized road cases just for them. The head, ballast, and all the accessories fit perfectly inside. A big thank you to Jason Cases, and we look forward to renting them out, and getting some hours clocked on them.
