    Tempe Camera removed their Hasselblad Xpan from their rental list and sold it, just as I was wanting to try it out (and shoot some wide-format Kodachrome while this is still possible). They still have their Noblex, but stock no other panoramic/wide format camera.

    Does anyone know of U.S. shops that still rent the Xpan or Fuji TX-1?

    Calumet or Samy's in L.A. perhaps, I'd probably check Samy's first.

    Keeble & Suchat ( http://www.kspphoto.com/ ) in Palo Alto , California might. They have a large rental department.

    There's also a place int SF...but, I forget their name.

    Glazer's in Seattle does, but I believe they do local rentals only.
