Atomos and Nikon just released their new “Filmmaker’s Kit” at NAB 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada, which combines the Nikon D850 with the Atomos Ninja Flame display recorder for 4K UHD video in a one-box solution.

The Kit includes a Nikon D850, three NIKKOR lenses, one Atomos Ninja Flame Monitor and two microphones.

Nikon D850
The D850 lets you film 4K UHD videos in full frame; even in dark scenes, you can rely on the D850 for consistently sharp video with low noise. 4K UHD videos can be recorded in MP4 format or the conventional MOV option in-camera for added flexibility. Produce stunning full-frame footage as you want it in manual mode, controlling aperture, ISO, and focus. Create dramatic Full HD slow-motion movies at 4x (shoot at 120p, playback at 30/25p) or 5x (shoot at 120p, playback at 24p)- great for creating drama that helps your content stand out from the ordinary. When you want to record from high or low angles, D850’s tilting touch LCD monitor gives you the flexibilty you need. Its extensive touch functionality brings a new level of convienience to your next production.


A trio of superb NIKKOR prime lenses.
Create content that extends your vision. The NIKKOR f/1.8 family of 20mm, 35mm and 85mm FX-format prime lenses offer outstanding optical characteristics, speed, versatility and image quality. Fast f/1.8 maximum apertures enables great depth of field control, low-light capabilities and consistent exposure control for a true cinematic feel.


An external recording monitor.
Create content like a pro. The Atomos Ninja Flame recording monitor is ideal for D850’s 4K UHD full-frame video output via HDMI. Whether creating content for a blog, creative project or corporate production, your recordings are instantly upgraded to the defacto standard for Hollywood (ProRes and DNxHR). To make things easier, there is also coiled HDMI cable, additional battery and Atomos Powered Docking Station.


Wired and wireless mics.
Create content with superior quality sound. The ME-W1 Wireless Microphone is a compact wireless Bluetooth microphone system that allows you to 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 audio recording convenience. Use them together for a wired and wireless stereo microphone solution.


Custom high-impact foam inserts.
Protect your investment. The D850 Filmmaker’s Kit comes packed in high-impact foam inserts that can be slotted into a protective case like a Pelican 1520 case to keep everything together and safe.
