Remember when photographers had no choice but to develop their photos in a darkroom? Well it's not the Dark Ages anymore; now not only do they have super fancy equipment, but they can now even rent that equipment with Cairo Camera Rentals.
We at CairoScene are no strangers to the woes of photojournalism; our turbulent ascent to Internet celebrity has been fraught with photography fails and poorly equipped selfie photo shoots. So, once again, we took to the feeds of Instagram to vent our frustration, and we stumbled on the answer to our prayers!
Cairo Camera Rentals (CCR) provides an “ever growing selection of cameras, lenses, lighting kits, audio equipment, and production support systems that are suitable for both novices and pros.” All these things are yours for the renting; all you have to do is log onto their website, find out what you need, and give them a call. Soon, you will be able to complete the booking process through their website, but according to Co-Founder Fadi Gamil “you still need to collect the item(s) and make the payment” at their office in Sheraton. “Delivery can compromise the equipment, but we are open from 10 AM to 6 PM and from 10 PM to 6 AM,” he reassured us, for those situations when you absolutely need to take a kick-ass photo (or selfie…). So the next time you need a wide angle lens (a term we recently learned), you don't have to spiral into a raging panic and cancel the whole shoot; you can simply rent one. You're welcome.
