Wanted 645Z body for hire

Hi there,

I own a Pentax 645z camera and am looking at hiring a second body for a week while I am in Fiji. I will take out insurance on the camera so that it is covered overseas and will hardly use it.

Is anyone interested in renting out their body? Dates are Sept 1st - Sept 8th. There is actually only 3 days of shooting in that time, and yours will be my back up camera anyway.

I am in Sydney...any takers? I can't find them anywhere to rent
thanks
Jonathan

Quite a coincidence Jonathan. I live in Sydney as well - and sometimes want to hire a second. If you find a solution, please do let me know. I would consider helping you out, but mine is with Pentax in Japan for repairs (which, as you know, is more or less akin to sending it adrift into an infinite universe and hoping that one day it crashes back to Earth).

Hey Ed, thanks for your response. I hope yours returns to our universe soon enough.
As happy as I am with the camera, I am finding all the service surrounding it pretty bad to be honest. I just don't think they have the volume and numbers to warrant better service.
I have found a solution but it is in Perth, and they are deciding if they will let it out of the country or not. Even though i would have it covered under my insurance.

Let me know when yours is back and if you need one for now, I am on 0423 764 371

I have no idea as if international rentals are at all possible. But...
