Camera and Lens Rental at Castle Cameras


Did you know we do rental?

Rental is a great way to go if you want to be able to use exotic or expensive kit but don’t want to own the gear. For those jobs that require just an extra step then consider rental as a great way to boost your kit bag without breaking the bank. The best bit? You can charge your clients for the privilege by including rental costs in your bill.



For sometime now we have been offering this great rental service to our customers and would like to make sure you all know about it and can take advantage. We have a huge selection of Canon equipment for hire from a 50mm f/1.4, right up to a Canon 5DSR!

We also have a limited amount of rental equipment available from other manufacturers, including the Sony A7S mark II and the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G. We can also hire our anything you might find on our USED equipment list.


How does it work?


You can rent Digital SLR cameras and lenses from Castle Cameras at our Bournemouth Store, Dorset and our Salisbury store, Wiltshire.

Renting from Castle Cameras gives you the benefit of having a local collection service available from Bournemouth or Salisbury as well as being able to try the kit before you buy it. If you rent a piece of equipment and decide afterwards to purchase it we’ll knock up to 1.5 days rental off the product price!

To rent from Castle Cameras you will need register with us first by popping into our Bournemouth store with the following:

  • Photo ID, either Driving Licence or Passport
  • Bank statement or Utility bill featuring your current home address dated within the previous 3 months, Gas/Electric or Water ONLY.
  • The ability to put down a deposit for the current retail value of the goods, credit or debit card only.

ALL accounts must be created at our Bournemouth branch in person.

Creating the account takes about 10 minutes, so you can come in on the day you’d like to rent to set it up. If you do not have an account, you cannot hire out equipment. No exceptions.

You can collect rentals from our Salisbury store, however please let the Bournemouth store know (01202 526606) if you wish to do this, as all hire equipment is held at our Bournemouth branch. Please let us know as soon as possible if you require this service, as we will need to arrange transit to Salisbury.

Rental is only available via local pickup in our stores and is subject to customer ID checks.  Delivery is not possible at this time. We reserve the right to charge a deposit to the full retail value of goods on all of our rental equipment. We generally don’t ask for a deposit but on very high value items it may be necessary if it is your initial rental.
