Nikkor: Three fast, versatile prime lenses

The lenses' fast f/1.8 maximum aperture enables great depth of field control, low-light capabilities and consistent exposure when switching between lenses. Nikon's innovative Silent Wave Motor achieves ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing and a lightweight, compact design, making these lenses an ideal choice for video applications.
The most advanced HDMI recorder

With simple touchscreen operation and mission-critical reliability, the Ninja-2 helps streamline the video production workflow and deliver faster turnaround. The one-touch SmartMonitor feature is ideal for use on set, as it allows you to accurately assess focus and exposure with options like focus peaking, adjustable zebra striping, two modes of false color, a blue-only exposure check and adjustments for individual filters.

High fidelity stereo sound
Record crystal-clear stereo sound directly to your DSLR with Nikon's lightweight on-camera ME-1 Stereo Microphone. Perched upon the camera's hotshoe and connected via the built in 3.5mm mic jack, the ME-1 also significantly reduces noise heard from the lens autofocusing during recording.
Versatile light control
Ideal for controlling exposure when shooting video, these fully variable Tiffen Variable ND filters are easy to use, small and lightweight - perfect for filmmakers. They provide 2 to 8 stops of light control, so you can shoot in bright scenes with shallow depth of field, which would otherwise cause overexposure. Included are the Tiffen 58mm VND and 67mm VND filters.
Extra battery power
Time is money when it comes to shooting video. No need to stop production in order to recharge - with two spare EN-EL15 batteries, you'll always be good to go.
The only cable you need to connect your DSLR to the Atomos Ninja-2 or any other HDMI external recording device or monitor.
