    Nope. I have seen documentaries done with the old Pocket camera, the micro. And also Canon C100, etc.
    Maybe they want you to scale it up to 4k. I donīt know. I donīt care much for netflix. But the "approved" list is only for ORIGINALS.
    You can use any camera you want and still sell it to Netflix (if Netflix is interested in the film they donīt care about the camera)

      Ok, thanks for clearing that up, guys. The idea, for now, is to make a proof of concept. Me and my co-writer are still working on the script for the pilot (well, actually we almost have the structure for 4 or 5 seasons... lol), but the idea is to shoot it the best way we can, with the best production value possible and try to pitch it to a big streaming company like Netflix. I've mentioned Netflix because I know a few guys that would get my show seen, so it's probably better to start there.

      Thanks.

        Yes, I liked my Leica lenses, used them on a Leica M4/5, great image quality btw. I also like the image from the old Leica R lenses from the R4/6 SLR Camera. The downside is the higher cost of these lenses. This is where I find the Zeiss lenses as a good compromise. I also saw a Zeiss Milvus CINE lens set for sale here: http://www.bmcuser.com/showthread.ph...t-(-EF-Mount-)
        Good luck with your Production David.
        Cheers

          Does anyone know the real differences between the Contax Zeiss, Zeiss ZF, Zeiss Milvus and Zeiss Otus? Any particular advantage in getting any of these lines?

          thanks

            As the lenses developed, they share a common design, but construction and lens coatings changed and improved. The new coatings on the newer lenses like the Milvus which also had some design changes, results in a more modern look to the IQ. The Otus are an entire different design APO lens, like the SLR APO Cine lenses, again, an entire different look to,them, with improved CA, better edge to edge sharpness and less light fall of when wide open. They are also a higher resolution lens design.

              The Zeiss 135 f2 Apo Sonnar lens Zeiss admit would have been classed as Otus had the design not came out before the Otus line. I'm not a fan of the Otus "onion rings" bokeh.

                Thanks guys. How do the Mamiyas 645 Sekor C compare, optically, to the contax Zeiss? They are much cheaper and are medium format which should mean they are optically amazing. Trying to find a cheap solution for a high end looking image. And then cine mod whatever kit I build.

                  I don't have experience with Mamiya 645 myself, but I've used Pentax 6x7 and Zeiss Jena for Pentacon 6 and I love it, but naturally a matching wide angle lens may be a bit tricky to find at times.
                  I almost did invest in some Mamiya lenses back in the day and I found this during my research:
