Cinematographer Antoine Reinhardt shares his experience with Duclos Dash. “I had just received word that I would be shooting B-camera for Edmund Schwartz’s newest feature starring Melinda Cross, mostly on location in Bermuda. I began to panic since I didn’t have the right lens for the shoot. I hit my Duclos Dash button! The next morning, the perfect Fujinon 18-85mm T2.0 was at my doorstep. I didn’t have to do anything but push the button… My card was charged the $87,000 and I didn’t even have to pay for shipping! What a life saver.”
Don’t be bogged down by the traditional cinema lens shopping process. Whether you’re an Owner-Operator or an Equipment Rental House – pay attention to the things that matter and leave the petty financial details behind. Available for select lenses at first, with new models to be added soon. For additional information or to order your Duclos Dash button, head on over to DuclosLenses.com today!

Perhaps version 2.0 could add a key lock? I’d hate to find ten Canon 17-120s sitting on my doorstep because I kept in my front pocket all day 😉
Ugh. Key lock… password… PIN.. So inconvenient. Sometimes you just want a set of Leica Summilux-C primes or a 17-120 or two. Right?
I had something similar to this from a competitor, but it didn’t quite work as expected. Rather then getting a new set Cooke S4/i primes to be delivered on set, that company’s Dash button ordered me a set of Rokinon DS primes. Needless to say, I was rather embarrassed when those showed up on set instead of the Cookes.
Last week I used the Duclos Dash button to get a set of Fujinon zooms for a new movie being shot in New Orleans. The set arrive on right on time and Duclos made sure they had the shipping case sealed tight in case there was another unexpected flood. Not only that, they hid two bags of my favorite tortillas chips in the gaps of the case since they know how much I love my tortillas. These guys are the best!
