More freedom to create. Whether you’re a pro or just starting out, the Nikon Z 6II Essential Movie Kit gives you the core tools you need to take your video content to the next level. With a base this strong and flexible, where you go next is anywhere you want.
This ultimate essential kit for the independent filmmaker features the Nikon Z 6II full-frame mirrorless camera, the FTZ Mount Adapter, Atomos Ninja V, SmallRig quick-release camera cage, and various accessories.
The Nikon Z 6II offers ultra-high-quality video at any frame rate. It delivers exquisite 4K footage oversampled from 6K with full-pixel readout. In-camera five-axis optical Vibration Reduction works together with electronic VR for rock-steady shots. And Atomos open protocol is supported to enable seamless integration of the included Atomos Ninja V.
Atomos Ninja V – Benefit from flexible monitoring and recording in edit-ready ProRes and DNxHR formats. Record in 4K 10-bit with N-log. Or simultaneously record uncompressed 8-bit 4K/UHD movie files to the memory card and the Atomos. A power adapter is included, as is a caddy for your hard drive.
With the FTZ Mount Adapter attached to your Z 6II camera, you’re free to use F-mount NIKKOR lenses. There’s no loss of image quality. Plus non-VR lenses will find new levels of sharpness with in-camera VR.
The Z 6II camera’s wide Z mount, and short distance between mount and sensor, mean you can use a wide range of cine lenses. From your favourite prime to the zoom recommended in class. All you need is the right mount adapter.
This camera cage and top-mounting grip handle feature mounting holes in two sizes, and holes for locating ARRI-compatible extension blocks. The grip ensures steadier moving shots so you can sweep and track with ease.
Switch rapidly between shooting scenarios. The SmallRig camera cage boasts a built-in Manfrotto-compatible quick-release system, so you can transfer to and from tripods or monopods in seconds.
Rock Steady – Mount your Atomos Ninja V to the camera cage with the Magic Arm clamp. Adjust the twin ballhead screw clamps for rock-steady monitoring at any angle. A central wingnut locks and releases the whole arm.
Keep Shooting – Never stop creating. 2x 5200 mAh batteries and a fast charger keep your Atomos running on even the longest shoot. An additional EN-EL15c battery ensures your Z 6II is always ready for the next take.
Stay Connected – Shoot worry-free thanks to the coiled HDMI cable, which keeps your rig tidy and minimises strain on connections. Supports high speed HDMI 2.0 for 4Kp60 ProRes and RAW high-frame-rate recordings.
Record ProRes RAW from camera RAW – Do more with your video footage. The Nikon Z 6II can output a 12-bit RAW video stream straight from the camera to the included Atomos Ninja V. The video stream is recorded as ProRes RAW, giving you maximum flexibility when grading, and extended detail in bright and dark areas.
Including a firmware update that improves the performance of Eye-Detection AF on the Z 7II and Z 6II, and enables additional recording formats and video workflows when shooting with the Z 6II.
This firmware will be able to detect the eyes of human subjects even when the subject’s face size within the frame is small. Improvements will be seen when shooting in auto-area AF (people) and wide-area AF (L-people). This firmware update will also add support for 4K UHD/60p to the Z 6II video recording options, and enable RAW video output to Blackmagic Design external recorders for both the Z 7II and Z 6II. Following the update, movie shooters will be able to record in Blackmagic RAW format as well as ProRes RAW format.
