Nikon has announced a new ‘Creator’s Kit’ for its Nikon Z50 camera system that’s designed to create an all-in-one solution to get shooting, streaming and recording right out of the box at a price less than the sum of its parts.
The Nikon Z50 Creator’s Kit includes the Z50 camera body, the Nikkor Z DX 16–50mm F3.5–6.3 VR lens, a SmallRig Vlogging Mounting Plate, a Joby GorillaPod 3K and a Rode VideoMicro microphone, all of which comes in a Nikon-branded travel bag. Along with the hardware, Nikon includes free access to its ‘Creator’s Mindset: Creating Video Content with the Z 50’ online class.
If all of the items were purchased individually (not including the bag or course), the total would add up to roughly $1,400, give or take for taxes and other additional costs. The Nikon Z50 Creator’s Kit costs $1,149.95 and is currently available to pre-order on Nikon’s store, with an estimated shipping date of Thursday, May 21.
Nikon also notes this kit (alongside its other camera systems) can be used as a webcam setup with various third-party hardware and software. To help get you started, Nikon has created a dedicated page to using your Nikon camera system as a webcam rig.
