Camera rental in Tampa area

Bob Prichard , May 03, 2009; 08:10 p.m.

I posted here a few weeks ago for suggestions on locations to shoot landscape photos in the Tampa area. I'm here for three weeks on business.
Unfortunately, due to weight and size restrictions, I was unable to bring my camera (5D2), lens and tripod (gitzo 1325) with me.
Since arriving, I have found some beautiful oak trees with hanging moss in Lettuce Lake Park that I would like to photograph before I leave.
Calling around to the camera stores in town, I have been told that there are no rental houses in Tampa.
I wonder if a landscape photographer in Tampa would mind renting or loaning me some equipment for a day so that I can shoot these trees before I leave? We don't have oaks with hanging moss in California, and the trees are exceptionally graceful.
You can see examples of my work at www.photographica.us
If you would be willing to rent or loan something like a 5D and some prime lenses or L-zoom and tripod for a day, please let me know.

I've rented from The Lens Depot , located just outside of Orlando. They will ship the equiptment or meet you at Starbucks for local pickup.

I don't know for sure, but have you tried North Tampa Photography

Orlando is some distance away. I was hoping to find something or someone local.
North Tampa Photography are the ones who told me no one rents in Tampa
