If you’re looking to acquire a slew of gear for your filmmaking needs in one fell swoop, Nikon’s newest Filmmaker’s Kit is worth a look.

The kit bundles the D850 DSLR  plus several lenses and accessories:

  • AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED lens
  • AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G lens
  • AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED lens
  • Extra EN-EL15A battery
  • ME-1 Stereo Microphone
  • ME-W1 Wireless Microphone
  • Atomos Ninja Flame external recorder
  • Custom foam inserts for use in a hard case (hard case not included)

The D850 offers 4K recording at 24 or 30p, plus clean HDMI output, zebra stripes and focus peaking. It’s one of the few Nikon DSLRs to record 4K video without cropping the sensor.

The kit will ship at the end of March for $5,500 and is available for pre-order now.
