Our dedicated Camera Facility is located in Chelsea, Manhattan. The prep floor features multiple MYT Works Opti-Glide systems for precise camera and lens testing. Checkouts are highly encouraged for cinema packages so we can work with you to ensure you have everything you need for your shoot.

SCHEDULING A CHECKOUT

  • Let your rental agent know when you hope to conduct your checkout so we can reserve a bay for you.

  • The standard start time is around 10am to allow ample room for changes.

  • Checkouts should be loaded out by about 5:30pm to make our freight elevator cutoff time.

COVID-19 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

  • Our Camera Facility in Chelsea is spacious, so there is no problem conducting a checkout on our prep floor while maintaining adequate distance from others. Our equipment packing, receiving, and diagnostics areas are located on a separate floor and we have also temporarily moved our outbound area. You/your AC will likely have the floor to yourself, limited interaction with others, and you will not be subject to any in or outbound movement.

  • All camera checkouts must be scheduled in advance. Please discuss with your rental agent how many crew members you hope to bring to the checkout as this number needs to be approved.

  • At this time we are pausing client food and beverage accommodations to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

TECHNICAL SUPPORT

 

Having issues on set or need technical assistance?

Call or email us if you are experiencing any technical difficulties with your rental - We will help troubleshoot and find a fix. We have found that most issues can be solved over the phone. If we still can't get it to work we will fly a replacement your way to get your shoot up and running. Even if you are unsure if there is a problem or if you no longer need the item, still let us know so we can log the issue.
