plane. was started out of love for working with film.
We are making quality analog equipment available to professionals, photo students and enthusiasts interested in working on film. This way, you get to try a camera you have been thinking about before setting out to buy one, or you can shoot that one project or job with a high end film camera.
Plane provides film camera rental, processing, scanning and printing services without breaking your bank.
Don’t feel comfortable shooting film yet? We can teach you the basics of working with film so you know the essentials before you even load that first roll.
how it works
Select your camera kit from the catalog and add to cart. Each kit has a drop down menu listing both the rental price for the kit and the deposit required for the kit.
You can choose to pay both the rental for a week and the deposit using credit card. Add both the “rental” and the “deposit” to your cart. The deposit will be a separate item in your cart. Alternatively, you can opt to pay the deposit using a bank transfer or with the bancontact app at the moment of pickup. In this case you transfer us the deposit a day before pickup. Please add a note saying you wish to do so.
At this time, we only accept credit card payment,
but we are working on a bancontact method.
The website will prompt you with the price for the week and availability for the selected period, deposit needed and pick up point of choice (Antwerp or Brussels). You pay the fee for the kit of your choice and provide a deposit, and that’s it. The kit will be ready for you the next workable day.
Need film? Don’t know how to develop or want prints? We got you covered. We offer film packages or individual film products in our store.
After you are done shooting, you just return the kit to the pickup point or our trusted lab partner. We offer (rush)processing, scanning or printing on demand.
You can select all these options from the catalog page, whilst choosing your camera kit, or after returning your kit.
Terms & conditions
We want to be as clear as possible about the way we work and what the rules are. Please take a minute to read through this.
All rentals are for a period of either one week or two weeks. All cameras / kits are to be picked up in Antwerp or Brussels.
We do not ship cameras, nor do we accept shipped returns. You can only rent one kit at a time.
By renting something, you pay for two things: the rental time for the rented equipment and the deposit for the rental equipment you are renting.
Right now, all our equipment has deposits on them. If you have a special insurance as a professional photographer, you may contact us to forego the deposit if we get the right documentation.
Credit card payments
You select the kit you want to rent and select the “add one week rental to cart”.
Make sure to add the period of your choice (7 days) or 14 days in the note in your cart. Need two weeks? Add the item twice. No need to think about availability, if a camera is not available, it wil not be selectable on the website. Do tell us when you need it, however.
Next, click the “add the deposit to cart” line. Confirm you have both the kit or camera you want to rent and the deposit in your cart. Proceed to checkout with credit card. The deposit will be released upon good return of your rental.
Bancontact App / Bank Transfer / Paypal
Select the kit you want to rent and select the “rent this without a credit card” option. You will be prompted with a contact form.
Tell us when you would like to rent the camera or kit, and we will reserve it for you. An email with our banking information will be sent.

While the deposit is refunded upon return, late fees, repair fees, or camera replacement costs may also not be refunded, if applicable.
Deposits are calculated on the replacement value for the product in question of the same quality in the same condition. We take good care of our equipment and most of it is in excellent condition, and we like to keep it that way. If a camera comes back abused, we will know it was you. We reserve the right to withold the deposit up to the repair costs or replacement of the camera or kit if needed.
Deposits are placed on every kit or camera, and vary from tens to thousands of euros. Deposits are listed as an own item and should be added to the cart individually for reach kit or camera. In the rental catalog, when viewing a camera or kit, select the “add deposit to cart” if you want to rent the camera using your credit card.
