It’s not much of a secret that I like to see those factory tour videos. Watching cameras, lenses and other photography related items being built fascinates me. I just like to know how things are put together and how they work. But one thing that often gets lost in such videos is the human connection. To the company and its workers.
The folks at cinema5D had the opportunity to take a look around the factory to see lenses being built. But they also got to sit down and talk with Sigma CEO, Kazuto Yamaki. It’s an interesting discussion talking about the company, the people who built it, the people who still work there and why all the machines on the factory floor are painted blue.
