In this vlog I cover the pros and cons of buying and renting equipment. This isn't a definitive answer to this question, but hopefully it'll help shed some light on this for some of you! I know i wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for renting. It's definitely helped me hone in on my skills. I recommend everyone rent something one day just so they can get experience with new equipment. Watch the video below for more, though!
I also talk about the Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 lens!
