    Trailer Here:

    Looks beautiful. Wonder if it was shot on Red as most of Netflix's shows have. IMDB lists no tech specs and I can't find anything about what it was shot on. Looks great either way. Can anyone confirm if this is another Red show?

    Hm, wierd, BTS shots show ARRI 16mm cameras? Looks like there is a digital camera on set as well but I can't tell what it is.

    Pictures here: http://www.ely-news.co.uk/pictures/p...ictures.html#3

    Most British Productions are Alexa so I'm going to say that this is probably not a Red shoot. Also the series DP has used Alexa on his last few gigs so probably not shot on Dragon. Too bad.

    Well, i guess it proves the point that it isn't necessarily just the camera as either way you felt it was beautiful. :-)

    Definitely true. I thought The Danish Girl was breathtakingly beautiful while Into the Badlands looked like shit. Both RED. Go figure. I guess the camera isn't magic after all. LOL

    This is a Netflix production, right? Doesn't that mean Alexa is banned due to non-native 4K. It might be something else than Red that shoots 4K, but for Netflix own productions Red has been the choice except for Bloodline which I know was shot Sony. But if "The Crown" is indeed shot on Alexa, that's a weird step for Netflix against their earlier policy.

    However, it looks like Red, not Alexa.

    Marco Polo is also shot on Sony, I believe. Beautiful show.

    Yeah, even if it isn't a F65, I still think Sony is one of the three major camera systems to choose from when in production. Outside of that the Panavision, but it's more niché.

    That is not accurate. Among Netflix productions shot using other cameras as the primary camera are Sense8 (Sony F55), Wet Hot American Summer (Sony F55), Grace and Frankie (Canon C300 MkII), and a number of others that I'm spacing on at the moment. A number of Netflix productions have been on Red, but a significant number have not. It's the same story with Amazon, but Amazon is not as rigid in its 4K origination demands (it is for delivery, but not for origination).

    Marcella, which I'm literally watching right now on Netflix in 4k, is shot on F65.

    Well, major productions like House of Cards, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Get Down and so on have all been shot on Red. Didn't say that it's exclusive Red, but the most widely known Netflix productions have been choosing Red as their format. The main thing though is that in the question of The Crown being shot on Alexa or Red, it's not Alexa. It might be something else, but it's probably shot on Red. The colors feels like it, but it could possibly have been shot on Sony as well. But if it's Alexa, then that would go against previous policies from Netflix about their native 4K approach.
