The Nikon D750 & D810A Target Filmmakers and Astrophotographers

When you think of what filmmakers and videographers are using today to create their films, you rarely ever hear about Nikon. While many of us are fans of Nikon, the move towards video has lead die-hard fans away from them for practical reasons. For starters, Canon is everywhere, and it’s what many TV shows, movies, and short films are being shot on. Nikon is hoping to change that with the introduction of their D750 filmmaker’s kit!

The Nikon D750 filmmaker’s kit consists of a bundle that should get anyone ready to shoot their first feature immediately. Inside the box you get theNikon D750 Full-Frame DSLR body plus three AF-S NIKKOR lenses: a 35mm f/1.8 ED, a 50mm f/1.8G and an 85mm f/1.8G. Tiffen 58mm and 67mm variable NDs are also included to cut down light on really bright days.

The kit also includes the Nikon ME-1 stereo microphone, and even an Atomos Ninja 2 in the box to allow you to capture decent scratch audio, and record at higher bit rates, to make post-production a cinch. Also in the box are two spare EN-EL15 Li-ion batteries for the camera and an HC-E1 18″ HDMI cable.

The only things you’ll need to get shooting are SDHC cards and 2.5-inch SSDs or HDDs to put into the Atomos Ninja 2 for recording.

It’ll be available by the end of the month and will be retailing for around $4,000 US.

For folks that want amazing night time time-lapses, or simply want to take pictures of the stars, the new Nikon D810A is here to serve. It’s the same as the NikonD810, but it comes with some tweaks, including a special filter that lets H-Alpha Wavelengths through. It’ll retail for $3,800 US.

While the latter D810A is meant more for stargazers, both it and the D750 could give Nikon some more market share in the filmmaking market. Considering that the D750 came out last year, though, is it too little too late for them? After all, $4,000 US isn’t really that cheap. Not to mention, theCanon C100, one of the best all in one, run and gun cameras, which we also use here, is only $3,999 US for the body.
