Nikon Z6 Filmmaker’s Kit
Amazing productions start here.
Your video productions have evolved. More sophisticated. More ambitious. Your video gear needs to deliver on your vision without compromise. When you’re ready for your video content to rise above ordinary, the Z 6 Filmmaker’s Kit gives you the tools you need to step up your production in one convenient bundle. Smooth, steady and cinematic full-frame 4K Ultra HD. Compatible with a vast selection of stellar NIKKOR lens options. Flexible, external monitoring and recording. Smooth, clean audio. And all the key components to make your next video project stand out.
The Full Frame Advantage
Z 6's full frame backside-illuminated CMOS sensor is approximately 1.5 times larger than DX, APS-C and Super 35 formats to achieve the widest angle of view possibly from your lenses, broader dynamic range, shallower depth of field and cleaner low light performance.
Brilliant 4K Ultra HD
Capture rich 4K video content that's four times the resolution of Full HD (3840x2160 compared to 1920x1080) for greater, denser image data and higher quality images.
The Z 6 is one of the few full-frame mirrorless cameras on the market capable of full-pixel readout, utilizing more pixels as compared to typical readout methods–equivalent to 6K–to deliver sharp, beautiful 4K UHD video with minimized noise, aliasing and artifacting.
Optically superior NIKKOR Z lenses
The growing lineup of new NIKKOR Z lenses were designed to take full advantage of the Z 6’s larger mount and shorter flange distance. But the benefits of NIKKOR Z lenses don’t stop there. As a videographer, you’ll notice reduced focus breathing, less wobbling and quieter autofocus. They also feature a new control ring that can be customized for smooth, quiet power aperture control or exposure compensation. The included NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S is the ideal versatile lens to start your video lens arsenal.
Mount Adapter FTZ - Greater performance from your favorite F-Mount lenses
When used with the included Mount Adapter FTZ, more than 90 F-Mount NIKKOR lenses maintain all of their sharpness, resolving power and functionality and gain the advantages of the Z 6’s in-body VR, silent shooting, PDAF focusing system, 4K video and more. Approximately 360 F-Mount NIKKOR lenses can be used. Compatibility as only Nikon can deliver.
Flexible frame rates - Ultra high quality video, at any rate.
- 4K at 24/30 fps - Shoot 4K video at 24 fps for a classic film look or 30 fps for smoother videos.
- Full HD at 120 fps - Record video with audio at up to 120 fps in Full HD for smooth fast motion. Additionally, this frame rate gives flexibility for post production slow motion and speed ramping, adding drama and suspense to your videos.
- In-Camera Slow Motion - Capture every moving detail at 120 fps, then play them back at 4x or 5x slower speed for jaw dropping, fluid slow motion in 1080p Full HD without any post-production.
Smooth and Steady - Superb image stabilization, inside and out.
- In-Body 5-Axis VR Image Stabilization - 5-axis in-camera VR image stabilization effectively reduces roll, the most common camera vibration during video recording as well as yaw, pitch, X and Y. During video recording, optical VR is combined with electronic VR(e-VR) for even steadier shots.
- VR For F-Mount NIKKOR Lenses - For the first time, optional F-Mount NIKKOR lenses like the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED or AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED can benefit from in-body 3-axis VR. NIKKOR lenses that already have VR, like the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR, get the added benefit of roll axis for a total of 3-axis VR. Just add the included Mount Adapter FTZ and you’re good to go.
Moza Air 2 Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer
Pan, tilt and follow moving subjects with all the smoothness and accuracy of high-end studio rigs and dollies. Mount the Z 6 to the handheld Moza Air 2 and off you go. Create dynamic sweeping shots, film from impossible angles and track tough to follow subjects. The Z 6 Filmmaker’s Kit also includes the Moza Magic 11.8" Articulating Arm for convenient attachment of the Ninja V Monitor.
