Rentals for Students
Film Objetkiv prides itself on being a community-driven endeavor. A huge part of any community is the concept and promotion of education. While we have a great resources section that will be better organized and much more filled in the future, Film Objektiv wants to do more to help students shoot more film.
Here, we offer student cameras at a 30-percent discount.* Any fully-manual camera with a rental price under $55/mo eligible to be a student camera. Students also receive 15 percent off any other rental once their application is approved.
All of the other stipulations of renting through Film Objektiv still apply. While the 100 Words assignment is not required for normal rentals, it is required for student rentals. Students are also still responsible for any loss, damage, theft, or other mishaps that the rented gear might face.
Students may order/reserve a camera and check out at any time, but must submit applications within 12 hours (if not in advance) to verify student status. A one-camera-at-a-time rule applies for student rentals, but may be forgiven on a case-by-case basis for the right, ambitious photo project with limited stipulations.
Please email us with the subject line, “Student Rental Application [insert driver's license number],” along with the following information:
- Photo/copy of student ID
- Photo/copy of Driver’s License

*All student discounts are applied to post-shipping costs, but are combinable with other long-term discounts.
