About us

Everything began …
with a love for film, with a passion for cinema,
with enthusiasm for moving images.
And with a camera.

Today Ludwig Kameraverleih is one of the leading distributors for professional film technology.

Three companies. One strong partner.

Focus on the film industry

Since it was founded in 1997, Ludwig Kameraverleih has developed into a leading rental company for film technology equipment in Germany – regardless of manufacturer, with more than 60,000 devices, including the most modern cameras, lenses and pioneering lighting technology for equipping demanding productions for cinema, streaming, television, Advertising and shows.

Despite all the changes, the most important thing has remained – our passion for moving images. To this day we feel obliged to our motto [moving pictures].

Desire for innovation

The change in film technology over the past 25 years is a perfect example of disruptive innovations. Digital devices displaced the classic film cameras, the former industrial copying machines have largely disappeared. The energy-saving and environmentally friendly LED technology is currently revolutionizing lighting.

We are proud that we were able to pave the way for some technical innovations. Regardless of the technology, however, the customer is always the focus of our actions. Our goal is only achieved when production has been successfully completed – whether with analog or digital recording technology, with spherical, anamorphic and large format lenses, with classic or LED lights.

Proximity to the customer

With eight locations in Germany, Ludwig camera rental covers almost every region. Our team stands for proximity to the customer. Our more than 75 employees have many years of experience in rental. Some of them worked on the set for a long time. Technical questions or creative ideas for set-up – the competent crew at Ludwig Kameraverleih knows what to do in every phase of a project and which equipment is right. And that during the entire production. Fast, reliable and – if there’s a problem – at short notice.

Our Company values

Ludwig Kameraverleih is an owner-managed company. Stefan Laucher leads the company as managing partner. Ernst Feiler, formerly Director Technology of the UFA Group (Bertelsmann), has been part of our management since January 2020. In addition, our managers are shareholders in the company.

Thanks to our ownership, we can act independently of the interests of third parties and make flexible decisions – we negotiate fairly, perform punctually and reliably and bill correctly.

 

The Network

MBF Filmtechnik with locations in Frankfurt, Hamburg and Berlin have been part of our group of companies since 2018 and Non-Stop Film Service, based in Warsaw, has been part of our group of companies since 2019.

As an exclusive partner, we represent Panavision in Germany. Whether a film is to be shot with Panavision lenses or international productions are pending – the Ludwig Kameraverleih team is the first point of contact in Germany.

Strong connections also count outside of film production. Our sister company GABO is the expert for digital collaboration and workflows as well as the evaluation of business-critical data.
