For the right person, these filmmaker kit bundles are a great idea. If you’re just starting off and making your first camera purchase, chances are you probably don’t have all the gear you need to dive into your film projects right away.
Or, maybe you do have gear, but you quickly find out that it’s not the right stuff for your new camera investment. While there are many similar filmmaker kit bundles for other cameras which you should definitely consider, let’s take a look at this new Nikon Z6 “Filmmaker’s Kit” and what’s inside.
Nikon Z6 Filmmaker’s KitFirstly, the Nikon Z6 is a solid “all-arounder” 4K video camera. We’ve written about it extensively here at No Film School and it definitely stands out even when compared to the more expensive Nikon Z7 for its video functionality. But you need more than a base camera to get started filming. Here’s everything included in the filmmaker’s kit:
NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens
Mount Adapter FTZ
Atomos Ninja V 4K HDR 5” Monitor Recorder
Rode VideoMic Pro Plus
MOZA Air 2 3-Axis Hand-Held Gimbal Stabilizer
Additional EN-EL15b battery
Coiled HDMI cable
12-month Vimeo Pro membership
Complimentary Nikon School Online class
Bundle Price: $3,996.95
Filmmaking with the Nikon Z6Of course you could always buy the Nikon Z6 by itself as well and build out a kit of your own. Or mix and match with whatever gear you might have already invested in. The 24-70mm is a solid stock zoom lens to start out with, but would definitely recommend looking into some fixed options or at least a nifty-fifty for more stylized shooting.
If you are considering the Nikon Z6 by itself, here are the price and full specs as well.
