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 Kit

Nikon Z6 Bundle

Firstly, 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

Of 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.

  • 24.5MP FX-Format CMOS Sensor

  • EXPEED 6 Image Processing Engine

  • UHD 4K Video (30fps)

  • ISO 100-51200

  • N-Log & 10-Bit HDMI Out

  • 3.2" 2.1m Tilting Touchscreen LCD

  • XQD Card Slot

  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

  • Nikon Z lens mount

Price: $1,996.95    

More from CES 2019, this Nikon Filmmaker’s Kit bundle does pair pretty well with the news of Nikon’s HDMI raw output support, as well as some other firmware updates coming soon.
