Not surprisingly, the Canon C300 MKIII was recently added to the list of "Netflix approved cameras" -- the C300 Mark II was also a member of this round. 4K RAW (Cinema Raw light) should ideally be shot in Super 35mm mode, even if a 16mm crop is allowed. A compressed recording in XF-AVC format is also allowed with 4:2:2 10 bit.
For commissioned work for Netflix Fiction, at least 90% of the footage should be shot with cameras from this list, so that the quality requirements meet the official Netflix requirements. For documentary work Netflix is more flexible and accepts less than 90%.
Our multi-part test of the C300 Mark III can be found here: Lab test 1 / resolution, Rolling Shutter, Lab test 2 / Dynamics, Field test 1, Field test 2.
