Students, faculty members, and staff members can rent cameras from the Digital Media Lab by doing the following:
First, register here at the Digital Media Lab website. To control spam your registration is approved manually, so it might take up to 24 hours for it to take effect. Do it as early as possible! (Professors: Prof. Thomson is happy to work with you in order to make sure that your classes are processed immediately if you’d like to make the qualification process part of your class. Just send him an email that lets him know when they’ll be signing up!)
Next, qualify on the equipment you would like to use by taking the appropriate Qualification Course in the training section of the site. Pass the quiz at the end of the course with 100% and you will receive a badge that entitles you to sign out that piece of equipment from the Digital Media Lab.
Now you can head over to the Gear Shop section of this website, select the equipment that you would like to use and reserve it. Print out your order confirmation and bring it to the Digital Media Lab office after 6:15 on Thursday to pick up your equipment and be sure to return your gear by 9am on Monday. (Although the office is generally locked during the weekend, you can get the key from the front office in order to drop off equipment.
