Camera & Film Studio Hire in London

Here at SL Vision Ltd (SLV), we have been hiring out cameras and film equipment in London for over 25 years. We are always willing to share our knowledge and offer advice, and it’s this that makes SLV the first choice for  many filmmakers, TV companies and independent production companies.

We have two studios in Battersea which our clients tell us are well thought-out spaces and a pleasure to work in. Both boast good soundproofing and a silent but powerful ventilation system, keeping them a comfortable temperature to shoot in.  New clients are welcome to come along and see which space will best suit your needs, so just get in touch to arrange a time.

Kit Of The Month

Introducing our new kit of the month: Aaton XTR Prod 16mm Film Camera. This is arguably one of the best 16mm cameras ever engineered and the best for handholding; designed to be used on the shoulder from the word go. It also has easy magazines to load and change, as most of the threading can be done in daylight. We’ve had this camera from new and it’s always been well maintained, so we decided to keep it, as most of the 16mm cameras still left are worse for wear. There are still some occasions when people want a film look, and what better way of achieving it than shooting on film?


Filming Equipment & Accessories to Hire

We have a wide range of top rated digital cameras for hire, including the Sony Venice, Sony F55, Arri Alexa MiniAlexa Plus and the Red Epic Dragon. Our mid-range cameras include the Sony Fs7 and Canon C300 MkII whilst we offer smaller DSLR cameras like the Sony A7s MK II and Canon 5D MK III, from as little as £55 per day. If you’re looking for something a bit more classic, we also own an Aaton 16mm film camera. Our lenses range from Full Frame, S35mm and S16mm PL mount to Canon EF  and Sony E mount lenses. For a softer look that’s kind on budget, our extensive range of vintage lenses are converted for use on modern cameras with both E and EF mounts.

Our knowledge and experience within the film industry makes us a great choice when it comes to hiring film equipmentSLV has always enjoyed being a little different to other facilities houses; our aim has never been big business and, as a small family run company, we’re proud to be one of the longest running in the UK. We suggest equipment we’d use ourselves, not the most profitable just the right tool for the job. We have some of the friendliest, most talented crew in the business working with us! We’re here to get our clients the best possible results so don’t hesitate to get in touch about your project or ask for advice. We’re happy to help.
