Pre-order the Nikon D850 FilmMaker’s Kit for $5500

Nikon has a hard time making enough Nikon D850s to satisfy demand but that didn’t stop them from creating the “FilmMaker’s Kit”, it is the D850 body only bundled with a trio of f1.8G FX lenses (20, 35, 85), the ME-1 Stereo Microphone and ME-W1 wireless microphone, a 7 inch Atomos Ninja Flame and a spare EN-EL15a battery.

The price of this bundle is $5500 and it is available for pre-ordering at Amazon by Amazon itself and by Adorama and by B&H Photo… This has been added to our Stock Status Tracker

WHEN DOES IT MAKE SENSE TO BUY THE FILMMAKER KIT?

The three f1.8G lenses on their own go for $800, $527, $477 respectively, totaling (with the help of a calculator) $1804. The Atomos goes for $795 on its own, increasing the bundle value to $2600. The battery goes for $60 on its own, while the two microphones go for $134 and $199 respectively. So that’s a total under $3000 for the Filmmaker kit, plus $3300 for the camera = $6300, with an asking price of $5500 for the bundle.

So with a difference of $2200 between the D850 body only ($3300) and the Filmmaker kit ($5500), you’d need to want at least $2200 worth of the kit items to make this a good deal. In other words, if you want all three lenses AND the Atomos, then it’s worth doing it, otherwise it becomes a too close to call type of a situation.

Canon 5D Mark IV Body with Pixma PRO 100 Printer and Paper and Meural Canvas Leonara (27″ IPS Canvas-Frame) for $3300 after $350 MIR

There is a new twist in the Canon PIXMA mail-in rebate offers at Adorama. In addition to the usual bundle they are also including a FREE Meural Canvas (priced $595 on its own) for the same price. But let’s start from the beginning.

Adorama is bundling the Canon 5D Mark IV body only with the PIXMA PRO 100 printer, its trusty sidekick the SG-201 (50pk 13×19″ photo paper) and the Meural Canvas Leonora Black model. You pay $3649 at checkout with free shipping. After you receive it all and make sure all is well, following the instructions and deadlines you submit the usual PIXMA mail-in rebate. A few weeks later, if all is well, you receive a $350 prepaid American Express gift card. Thus making this offer $3300 after the $350 MIR.

This is the same price for the Canon 5D Mark IV body only without the Pixma and Meural and without any mail-in rebates at B&H Photo and Amazon itself.

The Meural Canvas Leonara is a modern stylish take on the digital picture frame. It is a 27″ IPS display with computer-y internals that can display a variety of pictures. You get a 1-year subscription to their Art Library but you can also display your own pictures – of interest to photographers obviously. Here is a link to the product page for reference. Don’t add it to the shopping cart from this link. You have to order the Canon 5D Mark IV bundle to get it for free (included automatically).

A parallel offer is also available in the other two official Canon 5D Mark IV kits:

+ Canon 5D Mark IV with EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM for $4049 after $350 MIR

+ Canon 5D Mark IV with 24-105mm f4L IS II for $4199 after $350 MIR

NOTE: the order cut-off point before Adorama closes for Passover 2018 is Friday at 12pm ET (but don’t wait until the last minute to order!)
