Panasonic has kicked off a new creator rental program in the United States where you can rent the Lumix S1H for $99 USD a week.
If you’re interested in the camera, this is a great way to test it out to see if it’s the right fit for you.
Normal prices from a rental house seems to sit around $200 USD for a week.
Matt has done an extensive review of the Lumix S1H on the site.
Now, this is only the camera so you would also need to rent L-mount lenses or adapters if you didn’t already have those available.
It’s a great initiative from Panasonic to try and get the camera out into peoples hands.
A quick look at ShareGrid shows that the rental price varies from $99-$250 per day for various sized kit/lens packages.
The offer is available from the following dealers:
