Bass Media Equipment Checkout is an initiative co-run by the Student Technology Collaborative, and Bass Library. We invite Yale students, faculty, and staff to borrow cameras, audio equipment, laptops, and more for use in curricular or personal projects at no cost. Equipment must be picked up or dropped off while the Bass Library Services Desk is open; hours can be found here.

The Canon EOS Rebel T7 is a highly capable, but still user-friendly, entry-level DSLR camera. Notable features include a variety of built-in shooting modes, such as "Scene Intelligent Auto", which mode intelligently selects the appropriate camera settings based on recognized scene types for accurate exposures. This camera also has a feature guide to familiarize novice users with its operation and works well for experienced photographers seeking a powerful camera to capture their unique styles. This camera kit comes with the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens, though the lens can be swapped out with any Canon EF or EF-S lens, including those available for loan from BMEC.
