I’m wrapped on The Biggest Loser Asia! Phew! Now for some real food after eating crap for 2 months!
I’ve written a new article for my column at The Malaysian Insider. Below is an excerpt.
My camera is bigger than yours!
JAN 4 — He picks up the Sony Z1 video camera and it fits nicely in one hand. He pretends to put in on his shoulders as if it’s a big shoulder mount camera, then laughs.
“This thing is a toy mate!” he says to me chuckling.
He is an experienced Australian director of photography I’ve recently had the opportunity to work with and a very cool guy indeed. Used to having big cameras on big budget shoots, he had to get the small handheld Z1 because it was a fast shoot in another country which we had to fly in and out of within 24 hours, and with a very small crew.
“This is the kind of camera that I normally use for my own productions,” I said, my feelings already hurt.
He chuckles again and starts exploring the camera dials and buttons.
“I’m sure it produces pretty good images,” he smiles (I took it as a smirk!).
