    I am going to be working on a project and I require a Digital Video Camera.

    Its only a one off project so Its better off I rent the equipment.

    Where in Sydney can I rent digital video cameras and equipment? I would prefer to rent a HDTV camera.

    Also, i've never rented this kind of stuff, do the charge weekly? Daily? Is it expensive? Do they offer insurance?

    really? even a normal digi cam? Something like 5 mega pixel??

    "5 mega pixel" is almost certainly referring to a stills camera. Digital motion cameras are usually just talked about as "SD" or "HD".

    Here's an Australian rental company that should stock what you're after:

    But a Sony HDTV camera kit will set you back about $200,000 or do you mean an HDV cam about $9,000 or a Digi Beta about $100,000. Perhaps you are looking for something more at the consumer level budget?

    Have a chat to Frequency - the apple store in Sydney. They also sell and hire stuff to TV and Film - might be able to help you out!

    Try Videocraft at Artarmon. You can hire a Sony Z1 HDV handycam there. You will need to fill in a hire agreement beforehand though. It's a great camera, true widescreen, 3 CCD's, nice pics

    Also, good luck trying to edit it. It will take alot of CPU power to do so.

    I see this project was from last year (?) but for anyone else...

    My uni (griffith, brisbane) I think hire its equipment out at pretty good rates... pretty sure you don&#39;t have to be a student to hire the stuff. Not sure if they have HDTV quality though... certainly have 48k DV cams.
