Producer

As a producer or member of the production crew, we don’t usually use a camera when filming takes place. However, I often take videos or photographs when I scout for locations or shoot reference material. In this day and age, when production schedules—from the start of the project until the final delivery—become ever tighter, being able to easily share such materials with actors or camera operators is very important.

This has been my first time with a full-frame mirrorless camera like the SIGMA fp. My first thought when I picked it up was: “I feel cool just having it in my hands.” However, I was worried if the camera wouldn’t be cumbersome to actually use—but it turned out to be much easier to operate than I had expected. Everyone in our production team should be able to use it, and I think the camera will be easy to integrate into our workflow. If it came with a movable display, it should have been even easier to use.

Personally, I’d like to use the SIGMA fp to shoot sports and take high-quality videos for friends’ weddings and other occasions. I play touch football on the weekends (a lighter version of American Football) and I’d love to capture that with the SIGMA fp—in photographs and in videos.
