If you are accused of violating confidentiality obligations or personal rights, you can also rely on the protection of Professional Indemnity for Digital Professions. The insurer checks whether the claims against you are justified. If they are justified the insurer pays compensation. And unjustified claims are defended against as part of passive legal expenses insurance. You are free to choose the amount of coverage for financial losses.

Protection for Material Damages and Personal Injury

As a camera operator, you work with expensive equipment. Your work equipment includes cameras, microphones, tripods, DJI drones, and gimbals. Professional Indemnity for Digital Professions covers property damage and personal injuries through general and Personal Liability Insurance. What this means for you: Regardless of whether you get your equipment from the production company, or whether you have rented or leased it yourself (for a maximum of 6 months): Damage to equipment or other objects is insured. Thanks to global coverage, you are also comprehensively protected when filming abroad.

Technical Errors Are Also Insured

The video recordings are blurred or out of focus, or at the crucial moment you forgot to press record: Even experienced camera operators can make technical mistakes in the heat of the moment. If the production company cannot use the raw footage, it will need to be shot again. As a result, entire projects can be delayed and the production company may require you to pay for the additional costs for the shooting. As a freelance camera operator, this can quickly threaten your financial existence. With Professional Indemnity Insurance for Digital Professions, you are also covered in the event of slightly and grossly negligent errors and you don’t have to be liable with your private assets in the event claims for compensation.

There’s No Need to Panic about Third-party Cyber Damage

In your work, you always rely on email and mobile data storage devices. Imagine this scenario: You connect an external hard drive to the computer in post-production. After you have copied the raw material to the computer, you unplug the hard drive without ejecting it from the computer first. This corrupts the data on the hard drive that you haven’t copied yet. After a day of shooting, you send the time records to the editing team via email. In the process, you unintentionally transfer a virus to their computer via email. Third-party cyber damage (e.g. viruses or Trojans) and loss of data are covered by Professional Indemnity for Digital Professions.

The Risks Faced by Hungarian Camera Operators


Professional Indemnity for Camera Operators

Potential Damage Events for Camera Operators

  • You are on the road as part of a film crew and are shooting a scripted reality show in Budapest. You put the Sony PXW-X500 on the ground to quickly get a spare battery out of the car. When you come back, you discover that your camera has been stolen. You will be charged by the production company for the cost of the lost work as you cannot continue filming without a camera.
  • You forget to hit the record button while filming a documentary series. Back at the hotel you look at the raw material for the day and notice the mistake. Now the entire team has to go to the location again on the next day and re-shoot the material. The production company sues you for the additional work (travel expenses and salaries).
  • You are in the forest filming a scene with the moderator for an action sequence. You follow the moderator during the introduction through the undergrowth. As you look through the viewfinder, you stumble over a tree root that you overlooked. The production company’s camera breaks. You are held liable for the damage.
  • You load the production company’s car with the equipment. When you slam the car door, you accidentally trap your sound assistant’s hand in the door. You have to pay for the medical treatment and the shooting is delayed because the sound assistant is injured and the unit manager has to organise a replacement.

exali has been looking out for us for over 6 years, and we feel we are in very good hands. When a damage event occurred, it was clarified quickly and handled without complications. We would recommend exali without reservation and have already done so several times!
Simon Eberhardt, Managing Director
ideenhunger media GmbH, exali customer since 2012
In tune with the times. I was finally able to find an insurer that offers modern services. The specialists at exali recognise the current needs of media professionals. The “financial loss” module which takes trademarks and copyrights into account, for example, is a must nowadays. Nevertheless, most insurers explicitly exclude it.
“Passive legal expenses insurance” helps when defending against claims and is “legal protection insurance” that is also included in the package. The “all-risk coverage” clause is a customer-friendly approach. The overall package offers excellent coverage for the price. And the service? Always available. Open. Helpful. Really refreshing! It actually makes “insurance” fun.

I originally insured my activities through exali to protect myself against risks to the existence of my company. As a creative worker, the products are tailor-made for me.
I have actually seen now how you are actually at my side, competently and uncompromisingly, when I need your support. You and your colleagues have also been friendly and professional in our personal contacts. That is a foundation for a strong, long-term business relationship. Thanks a lot for that!

Bambule Webdesign, exali customer since 2012
As a self-employed SEO consultant, I am dependent on comprehensive insurance coverage. I could not bear the economic risks in online marketing, especially when advising large customers, without the limitation of liability or gigantic reserves.
So I’m extremely happy to have found the right partner in exali, who knows and understands my needs and offers me the support I need as a sole proprietorship without a large legal department behind me.
