University of Sheffield Photo Soc


If you are a paid PhotoSoc member you can borrow equipment from the society for free!

Have a look at what we’ve got below, and once you’ve made your choice fill out our equipment request form and we’ll bring the equipment to the next PhotoSoc Thursday meeting. You can borrow as much as you’d like, but we may not have everything in stock and if someone else requests an item you’ll have to bring it back the following week.

Here is the Sheffield University PhotoSoc Equipment Booking Form.
