A portrait of Florian Milz

Before joining CineD, Florian was Technical Officer at film equipment rental DigiRental Wien. During his time as a rental technician, he created a digital Knowledge Base, which offered easy-to-use tools for cinematographers, camera assistants and other industry professionals to compare and combine camera & lens data.

Following cinema5D's rebranding to CineD and a major website re-design in 2020, Florian became part of the CineD team and his Knowledge Base has been integrated into CineD's website.
