How much does it cost if you hire C300mk2 or FS7m2 in Japan?

Sometimes people ask me to shoot with Canon C300mk2 or SONY FS7m2 for their interviews or documentary shootings. I have my own C300mk2 but often I need one more to film interviews with two cameras. Then I ask local agencies that rent those professional equipment.

Generally, a Canon C300mk2 costs between 15,000 JPY to 23,000 JPY (about 140 USD to 210 USD) per day, while a SONY FS7m2 costs 12,000 JPY to 16,000 JPY (about 110 USD to 150 USD) per day in Tokyo (as of February 2020).

Since my friend videographer, AdriĆ  Ginger, told me about the Toyo Rental several years ago, I have been renting many equipment from them. They provide latest models at resonable prices.

Besides, I usually hire equipment from these agencies as well:

Tokyo Camera Kizai Rental https://www.tokyo-camera.jp/ (Japanese language web site)

Hope you have a successful filming in Tokyo!
