Over the years Hollywood Studio Rentals has been asked to provide equipment and support for those that shoot in some strange places. Fortunately, we have the resources, background and technical engineering skills that allow us to create products and develop strategies that are not normally found in a standard rental house environment.


SHOOTING UNDERWATER:

>>> Most cameras take poorly to being submersed in water, either fresh or salt.  Consumer "splash" cameras do better, but we don't carry those. We do carry specific and universal enclosures that can handle the rigors of water shooting. Generally, they can handle up to 1 atmosphere of pressure, about 33 feet. Beyond that point, the effect of gravity is greater than the buoyancy created by the displaced air, and BLOOP, your camera system slowly floats downward until it explodes.  Don't laugh, I've seen it happen - so hold on tight.


SONY HPK-SPD fits a wide assortment of Sony Handycam's such as the TRV-series, HDR-HC1, HDR-HC7........35.00

and others. The enclosures allow for transport control from its exterior and even has a hydrophone built-in for that cool BLURP sound. 

EQUINOX universal allows smaller Panasonic handheld's and most DSLR's (ie.: Canon 7D, 5D,.....................................95.00

Panasonic GH4, etc.) to be mounted to the internal sled, close it up and away you go. 


IKELIGHT makes a really nice enclosure. Ours is designed to fit most Sony camcorders such.......................................95.00

as FS100 and FS700, as well as many older tape-based HD cameras.


Two technical notes: First, bring your camera for a fitting. Here we will test for fit and provide additional training.

Second, realize that everything underwater is in focus. No appreciable DOF. Generally, you will use a lens that's no longer than 35MM. A really wide lens will work against you. 20MM and up.


CLOSE QUARTERS


Miniature cameras can be located in various locations where a full-sized camera simply can not go. On the top or side of a helmet, front or rear of a surf board, even on the exterior and interior of an aircraft. HSR carries the GO PRO line of cameras which has come to be the de-facto standard in miniature cameras. They perform well within their limitations and various accessories expand on functionality and interfaces. To a greater extent, GO PRO's are defined by the large number of available accessories built by after-market manufacturers.


GO PRO HERO 3 BLACK EDITION shoots various resolutions at various frame rates.  33% improved image sharpness and reduced distortion.  Faster built in Wi-Fi for enhanced connectivity to the Wi-Fi Remote (included) and GoPro App Super View video mode captures the world"s most immersive wide angle perspective and 30% longer battery life. Time-Lapse recording,  USB charging, audio recording, high-speed recording, multi-picture burst, remote control via Android devices, remote control via IPhone,  selectable field of view, takes photos while movie recording.

OOOH - SPOOKY


>>>HSR has had the great pleasure of working with many of the UFO / Yeti-Bigfoot / Ghost reality shows. They, too shoot in rather strange environments such as underground, in the mountains, under water and inside abandoned mental hospitals. While creepy, we can handle the shoot without human abductions.


Seeing in the dark is the job of our Super Night Shot cameras by Sony. This function is built in and available with the flick of a button. It's good, but has a short projection range.   Invisible to humans and most zombies.


SONY HDR-HC1             The HDR-HC1 features Sony's CMOS imaging sensor technology,..........................................75.00

designed to deliver faster image processing speeds for richer colors, more vivid detail, and significantly less glare from reflected light. The HDR-HC1 weighs in at less than two pounds and fits comfortably in your hand. The HDR-HC1 also features a 2.7-inch wide hybrid, touch-panel LCD screen to access menu options. You can switch between 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios (in DV mode) to see exactly how your content will be viewed on television. Other convenient features include fully automatic controls, a built-in microphone for audio quality, an intelligent pop-up flash, and Super SteadyShot image stabilization.


HDV Recording Format
Sony’s HDR-HC1 camcorder is one of the industry's smallest and lightest HDV1080i prosumer level camcorder and player. Now you can record all the terror in true high-definition video.


SONY HDR-HC7
It's never been easier to capture the highest quality, high definition video possible on a.................................................95.00

MiniDV cassette. A professional grade Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T Lens with 10x optical/20x digital zoom and a 1/2.9" ClearVid CMOS Sensor. Manually control focus, exposure, shutter speed, auto exposure shift and white balance shift. View everything you shoot on the 2.7" Touch Panel Swivel Screen. Super SteadyShot technology and the Super NightShot feature will help you capture videos you'll want to share with the world. 2.7 widescreen 16 - 9 hybrid LCD touch panel -- rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles Smooth Slow Record - Increase the frame rate from 60fps to 240fps, capturing smooth slow motion Super SteadyShot compensates for camera shake without compromising picture quality  Tele Macro Function handles close-ups without casting a shadow on your subject. 


Switchable HD/DV format recording The HDR-HC7 is capable of recording and playing back both High Definition (HD) and Standard Definition (SD) video recorded on a standard MiniDV cassette.

x.v.Color can capture or display nearly twice as many (1.8x) viewable colors than currently possible. This provides a more accurate and vivid color range, for a more natural, lifelike overall experience.


Professional-quality Carl Zeiss Vario- Sonnar T* lens has an advanced optical multi-layer coating that offers less glare and flare with increased contrast. This results in vivid image brilliance, true-to-life color saturation and perfectg renditions of subtle tones. The additional T* coating on the lens further reduces unwanted glare and flare.

2.7-inch widescreen hybrid touch-panel Clear Photo LCD Plus display The 2.7-inch 16:9 LCD screen provides excellent viewing clarity with improved resolution. The 211K pixel LCD screen rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles providing sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback, and the widescreen format makes shooting in 16:9 mode and composing shots even easier.


Super SteadyShot image stabilization system Picture stabilization system that uses motion sensors to detect and compensate for camera "shake" without compromising picture quality like some other digital stabilization systems.

Cinematic mode is perfect for creating your own television and movie masterpieces, the HDR-HC7 Cinematic mode lends 24 frame film-like effect to your recordings. Aliens hate 24 frame.


SONY HVL-IRM INFRARED ILLUMINATORS provide additional IR punch in the event Sasquash ..........25.00

is a little too far away. They mount to the cameras shoe and follow the center of frame. 


COMPACT HANDHELD INFRARED THERMAL IMAGING is no problem with the FLIR E5NIST..................175.00

Find those pesky Bigfoot every time by viewing their heat signatures. Differentiates various

cold and hot areas in assignable colors. Composite video out allows recording of what is displayed on the internal LCD screen.


MANY ALIEN SPACECRAFT EMIT RADIATION AS A COMPONENT OF THEIR POWERING, PROPULSION AND WEAPONS SYSTEMS. But how much? Is it safe? It's best to know for sure.


​The RADIATION ALERT MONITOR  4 is a hand-held radiation detector with an analog...........................................................75.00

display over three selectable operational ranges for detecting potentially harmful ionizing alpha and beta particles, and gamma and x-ray radiation. This meter has a dual-scale, analog, needle-point display of counts per minute (CPM), and milliRoentgen (mR) per hour. It detects the four main types of ionizing radiation: alpha and beta particles, and gamma rays and x-rays. It has three selectable operational ranges (X1, X10, or X100) to be adjusted when the meter face peaks at the highest mR level.

The Monitor 4 has a red, flashing counter and a beeping noise to indicate each ionizing radiation event. It has a halogen-quenched Geiger Mueller (GM) tube with a thin, mica end window for sensing ionizing radiation. It is used to check radiation levels in the environment and objects, such as particle accelerators, interstellar travelers, x-ray shielding, and industrial gauges. An audio indicator with an internally mounted beeper can be turned off for silent operation without alerting exo-biologicals to your presence.


EVERYONE KNOW GHOSTS, BOTH CORPOREAL AND NON-CORPOREAL DISTURB THE ELECTRO-MAGNETIC SPECTRUM TO SOME EXTENT. But how much? If you are a ghost tracker - you should know or risk being slimmed.


The TriField Natural EM Meter was designed to do field measurements for special.......................................65.00

research. It detects changes in extremely weak static (DC or "natural") electric and magnetic fields, and signals with both a tone and the movement of a needle-type gauge if either the electric or magnetic field changes from previous levels. A radio and microwave detector is also included, which reads radio power directly. Because man-made AC electric and magnetic fields are very common and could interfere with readings of static fields, the meter has been designed to ignore AC fields. Normal construction materials don't block magnetic fields, so the meter can be placed indoors and will work equally well, and due to the built-in tone, it can be used in the dark, and will sound the tone at whatever level of field the user sets.


"DID YOU HEAR THAT?"   "It's clearly a Squash (or a ghost, or an alien) !!!"  Well perhaps it is, but it's hard to tell with inferior sound pick-up. Sounds at a distance are inherently harder to record due to factors such as ambiant sound and the volume and direction of that sound. HSR offers a simple solution.


SENNHEISER MKH-804 is a long, long shotgun microphone designed just for sound pick-up at a distance. As a highly directional shotgun, it is perfectly designed to acquire audible sound from far off. The 23-inch long T-powered unit (a T-power adapter is provided) can double as a fine weapon should be you attacked by zombies or who knows what else............................................................................................................................................................25.00​
