Aside from film camera workshops, which have been put on hold due to quarantine, VCM rents out its array of film cameras, which include single-lens reflex cameras, range finders, and point-and-shoot cameras. These can be rented from P650 to P1,000 for two hours, inclusive of 36 shots of 35 mm film, complete with processing, scanning, and uploading. VCM also rents our prime lenses.
