Overview

Our take on the Nikon D850 Filmmaker's Kit

Nikon's D850 Filmmaker's kit is the most drool-inducing DSLR kit I've ever seen. It lets you express your cinematic vision with pro-level picture and sound quality. The D850 has been touted by reviewers as the best Nikon DSLR ever made, and it's easy to see why. It's bundled here with three superb Nikon lenses, two microphones, and an external video recording monitor.

Everything you need to create spectacular movies (and stills)

Nikon's D850 Filmmaker's kit is the most drool-inducing DSLR kit I've ever seen. It lets you express your cinematic vision with pro-level picture and sound quality. The D850 has been touted by reviewers as the best Nikon DSLR ever made, and it's easy to see why. It's bundled here with three superb Nikon lenses, two microphones, and an external video recording monitor.

4K movies bring your vision to life in stunning Ultra High Definition

The D850 records 4K movies at rates of up to 30 frames per second, using the full width and resolution of the camera's sensor. The large sensor allows for shooting with no crop factor using any full-frame Nikkor lens, and output is clean even at higher ISOs.

You can also create in-camera 4K time-lapse movies from consecutive still shots. Use Silent Live View Mode to bypass the mechanical shutter and mirror movement, and you'll conserve battery life and save thousands of shutter cycles, extending the life of your camera. Exposure Smoothing helps to keep your exposures consistent for smoother transitions between frames.

Pro-level movie features

Nikon's Flat Picture Control lets you shoot with post-processing in mind, while Zebra Stripes help you monitor the brightness of a given scene. You can also record simultaneously to the camera's memory cards and to the included external recorder via the camera's HDMI output.

Built-in Electronic Vibration Reduction makes it easier to avoid camera shake, even when recording on foot. The D850's power aperture function gives you smooth exposure transitions when moving from bright to dark areas, and Auto ISO in manual exposure mode works to maintain consistent brightness in changing light.

Get the look you're after with three outstanding lenses

A trio of fast f/1.8 FX-format prime lenses augments the D850's awesome resolving power. They deliver excellent optics, speed, versatility, and image quality. You'll enjoy great depth-of-field control, consistent exposure control, and great low-light performance.

Dial in the sound

Nikon included two kinds of microphones with this kit for adding superior sound quality to your creations. The ME-W1 wireless Bluetooth® microphone system lets you capture clear audio from subjects up to 164 feet away. And the ME-1 stereo microphone connects to the camera's hot shoe for on-the-go recording. Audio levels can be adjusted in 20 increments on the D850.

An external monitor expands your recording options

The included Atomos Ninja Flame external monitor is ideal for the D850's 4K UHD full-frame video output via HDMI. The Ninja Flame's bright, vivid screen makes it easier to judge exposure during HDR monitoring. This monitor also offers a High Bright Mode for traditional monitoring. It records to 2.5" SSDs and HDDs using Apple Pro Res and Avid DNxHR codecs.

Seriously, they thought of everything

The D850 Filmmaker's kit comes packed in high-impact foam inserts that can be slotted into a protective case to keep everything together and safe. And a spare battery is included to extend your recording time.
