Recording Format: • Minimum of 16-bit Linear or 10-bit Log processing • Bitrate of at least 240 Mbps (at 23.98/24 fps) recording • Recording format must be set to either: RAW (uncompressed or lightly compressed sensor data) Log color space (i.e. S-Log3, V-Log, CanonLog3, REDLogFilm, BMDLog, LogC) • No looks or color corrections should be baked into the original camera files. • Files must maintain all metadata (i.e. Tape Name, Timecode, Frame Rate, ISO, WB, etc.) Aspect Ratio / Framing: • Aspect ratios greater than 2.00:1 must be evaluated and discussed with Netflix for approval. • Framing chart must be shot before principal photography begins, and processed through the dailies pipeline which will be shared with editorial, post-production, and VFX. You're missing the actual approved camera portion from the requirements you posted. This clearly shows their spec list is outdated. The GH5 could meet the spec requirements as well as a bunch of other systems, like Kinefinity not currently present on their list. The whole intent is not to force certain cameras on their production crews. You might have a cinematographer who's very comfortable and has expertise with a Kinefinity, why would you jeopardize the project by forcing a camera on them that they can't work with? It's to establish a baseline standard of fidelity of what their own colorists prefer to work with. Trust me, this is reality, they receive shitty footage as well. But they have to set a bar somewhere so that the majority of the time they're getting what they feel they prefer to work with. Marketing agencies do exactly the same thing. I was a graphic designer back in the day, I received plenty of low fidelity content from clients, despite having a spec sheet of preferable fidelity, but we did what we had to do to make it work.
