Well known for its versatility, Sony’s FX6 full-frame 4K camera will join nine other Sony cameras on the Netflix Approved Camera List.
In its most compact form, the camera can be mounted even on a one-handed gimbal such as the DJI RS2. This enables videographers the flexibility to capture new angles in their production with ease.
According to Sony, cameras must meet minimum resolution and capture specifications, and “other attributes like dynamic range, form factor, stability and workflow compatibility were also taken into consideration”, in order for Netflix to approve their use.
Approved cameras are also tested to ensure they meet Netflix’s technical and workflow requirements.
Jessica Earnshaw, a documentary cinematographer, said: “During a recent shoot, I was blown away by the FX6 and its ability to help achieve the intimacy of verité shooting. I had no problem getting in there with the FX6 – the design, size, and weight are really fantastic.”
With the ability to capture 4K up to 120 fps in 10-bit 422, the FX6 proves to be the go-to camera for lowlight and dynamic range cinematic shoots.
Additional Sony cameras on the Netflix Approved Camera List include: Sony VENICE, Sony FX9, Sony Z750, Sony F55, Sony F5, Sony F65, Sony FS7/FS7ii, Sony HDC-4300, and Sony Z450.
