There is also a Nikon D810 animator’s kit

In addition to the Nikon D810 DSLR Filmmaker's Kit, there is also a D810 animator's kit designed for stop motion applications - it's basically a D810 bundle with a 105mm f/2.8 Micro lens, external power supply and Dragonframe software:

The animator's kit contains what you need to get started in the incredibly fun and exciting medium of stop motion animation. A full-frame Nikon DSLR with the latest image features combined with the AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED is the first step of the process. Together with the stop motion animation software Dragonframe™, used on many Hollywood blockbusters, you'll be up and running in no time. To ensure the motion doesn't stop, included in the kit is an EH-5b/EP-5b Power Supply and Connector for continuous power to the camera.

For now the D810 animator's kit is available only on Nikon USA website for $3,999.95 (savings of $750 off suggested retail prices when purchased separately).

Here is the Nikon D810 animator's kit unboxing video posted by Nikon USA:

    OK, so I get it, someone at Nikon higher-ups just discovered you actually make make videos with their cameras. That’s cool, right?

    • Eric Calabros

      and that discovered by Nikon USA, not recognized in Japan yet

    • “Cool” is just a polite way of saying “not pure.”

      Actually, a stop-motion animation isn’t video making. This bundle suits rather Df than D810…..hmmm..maybe it’s the next step in Nikon’s marketing strategy….Stop motion DSLR Cameras and Video DSLR Cameras….yes, that’s the way to go! I expect sharp rise in price of Df, because it would be the ultimate Stop Motion device and expect same bundle featuring D40.

      ok, moving on to thinking about the new “action” camera…

  • About the cost of Maya and ZBrush together. To analog or not to analog, that is the question.

    • Spy Black

      Just do both. Use Blender instead. 😉

  • fjfjjj

    Why don’t they do this with the D610? Shooting flat art is a perfect application for that camera’s AF system.

  • stormwatch

    Woooow…..the ultimate Shaun The Sheep bundle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Arthur Tazo

    A stop motion video using images that are shot using a 36Mp camera = goodbye to your hard drive.

    • TheInfinityPoint

      Lol, true. I shoot a lot of ultra-low-light time lapses with the D800, and I just upgraded to a 4Tb drive because of that. My last time lapse of the moonrise totaled 25 Gb in raw…lol. It does eat up a lot of space fast, but image quality and cropping freedom makes it worth it, for me at least.

    Is this a way of reducing the 105mm inventory for a possible refresh?

  • megadon357

    These D810 bundles are pretty cool marketing.

    • Merv S

      Agreed, but I only heard of this here on Nikon Rumors. Not much of a marketing push on the Nikon side.

  • Rafa R

    9 megapixels for the small raw file!? WTF at least give us the equivalent to the DX crop factor in MP … cmon

  • jypfoto

    Any idea on when the film makers kit will ship? Every place still says preorder with other places saying it will begin shipping 7/18 but obviously it hasn’t yet. Looking to get the D810 and have no glass so the kit looks intriguing.

  • I’m waiting for Nikon to come up with a “Nikon D810 Photographer’s Kit” any day now…

  • Michiel953

    I actually thought this review was a bit sketchy, too much oriented at very specific applications and not very critical. Doesn’t really matter.

    As probably the only person on earth I traded in my D800 yesterday for a discounted new D800E (so, not the ten then).
