Most Rented Photography & Videography Gear of 2019

By on

Here is the most rented photography & videography gear of 2019. Lensrentals.com has posted their annual list of the most rented photography & videography gear of 2019 and looks pretty similar to the 2018 list.

The only one camera from Nikon made the top 20 and it is the Nikon D750. There is also one Tamron lens for the Sony E mount on the list. As a conclusion we can say that DSLRs still rule the camera industryespecially for the rentals for obvious reasons.

Check out the most rented photography & videography gear of 2019.
