The Panasonic LUMIX S1H is not only the first mirrorless camera on Netflix’s list of approved cameras, but it’s also the most affordable.
Netflix is pretty particular when it comes to the ways in which their original content is captured. In fact, you might be familiar with their long (but somehow, not long enough) list of approved cameras that satisfy their strict resolution and capture requirements, including the format and the color space. And according to Netflix, all cameras need to have a “true 4K UHD sensor (equal to or greater than 3840 photosites wide).”
Well, that really only leaves very expensive top-tier cinema cameras as options for shooting Netflix Originals. Cameras like the ARRI Alexa, the Canon C-series (300 and above), Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K, the Sony Venice, and a host of RED shooters have met the stringent requirements thus far.
But Netflix recently added a camera to the list that sticks out like a sore thumb. The S1H.
