Parking at VMI

VMI usually has ample parking for clients and camera tests outside its unit, however, there are rare occasions when there are more clients than our parking provision can cope with, so happily, from mid 2018, the new Travelodge on the same Victoria Industrial Estate will offer short term car parking on a paybyphone system.

Be aware though that parking in one of these bays without paying for it will result in a parking charge notice being issued to the vehicle but happily this is easy, affordable and users can either use an App, via website or by calling below.

8am – 6pm£7.50
6pm – 8am£5.00
Up to 3 hours£3.00

Details for Payment

Tel: 020 3758 8728 or paybyphone

Site no. 1040

Instructions will take clients through the payment options and allow them to choose a tariff to pay for the days parking and all cards are accepted except American Express. 


Camera Test Rooms

VMI has 3 purpose built camera test rooms provided as complimentary for Clients engaging in pre-hire gear checks which are a generous size:

The main two test rooms are 6.7m (long) x 4.1m (wide) and have a 2.7m ceiling height and the third is slightly smaller.

These rooms are air conditioned with a clean-air feed and equipped with low energy cool LED light panels, designed so that test charts are pre-lit to F2.8 at 320 ASA.

An internet point, wifi and Green Room are provided too!

To book these facilities please ask your Client Contact managing your booking who will be happy to assist.

Lens Projection

VMI have a dedicated lens projection room equipped with a Chrosziel Full Frame lens projector and EF, B4 and PL mounts, to enable lenses to be accurately projected and check their focus scaling in a controlled environment.

Lenses with any of the above native mounts can be projected in order to check the accuracy of their focus scales, and to check for any other visibly obvious errors in their optical performance.

In conjunction with this, we have the Denz Laser depth test gauge, which allows us to accurately determine the focal depth of any PL mounted camera. Additionally, we have a conventional collimator, allowing us to test the collimation of a complete system, as well as the individual components.

About Us

VMI’s London HQ is based in West London (W3 6UU).  The main London Office is sited in a 10,000 square foot purpose built building, equipped thoughout with cool LED lighting to minimise its carbon footprint. See Environment.

It has a large equipment preparation area and 3 dedicated camera test rooms which are also pre-lit with LED light panels, and test charts, dedicated lens projection room and comfortable green room.

VMI often runs training & events in the W3 location as well.

We keep the full range of EF & PL cameras, lenses, lighting and grip for hire, including Phantom VEO 4K super slow motion cameras and specialist lenses too.

We have access to specialist Natural History equipment from VMI Bristol on regular shuttle runs between the branches without additional charge.
