Unless U.S. Copyright law has changed, the absence of a "specific" clause that says the job is a work for hire, all rights go to the creator. If there is no contract, then there can be no specific clause that states that the work is on a work for hire basis. The client has no rights to the footage, and unless I'm mistaken, if there are no distinguishing features on the lenses appearing on camera that one could easily associate with the manufacturer, then you only have footage of lenses.
