The Panasonic S1H is the first mirrorless camera that received approval from the Netflix production team. The Panasonic S1H has a $4,000 price point and offers a cheaper alternative for filmmakers to create content for the Netflix streaming platform. The production guidelines outlined by Netflix state that when using the S1H camera, users will have to be capturing video in 4K or higher.
Approval form Netflix will make Panasonic's mirrorless camera a popular option for filmmakers operating on smaller budgets. Additionally, the approval could help Netflix obtain more content as it has set clear parameters for content creators to follow. Lowering barriers for entry will allow Netflix to take content from a wider pool of creators.
