The Blackmagic Design Production Camera 4K features a Super 35mm sized image sensor with a global shutter and a Canon EF lens mount. The camera is capable of recording Ultra HD 4K (3840x2160) and 1080p video using the 10-bit Apple ProRes 422 family of codecs, as well as the visually lossless, compressed 12-bit CinemaDNG RAW at 4000x2160 resolution. The built-in recorder utilizes removable 2.5" SSDs, which enable the high data rates required by RAW and 880Mbps ProRes HQ. The camera's ability to expose for 12 stops of dynamic range lends the image a truly film-like look, and the Super 35mm (21.12 x 11.88mm) sized sensor approximates the standard of traditional film.

Owner Notes:
The Blackmagic Camera has some very light scuffs on the metal body, but works like a charm. This kit is everything you need to go out and begin shooting right away, including

"Advances in video have made filmmaking accessible to creators everywhere. But the accessibility of professional audio devices has not kept pace. Field recorders, with essential features such as time code, have been unobtainable for most. Until now.

"The F8 is made for serious filmmakers and sound designers. With 8-input/10-track recording, super low-noise preamps, and support for 24-bit/192 kHz audio, the F8 captures the highest-quality audio. Outfitted with our finest mic preamps to date, the F8 features an extremely low noise floor (−127 dBu EIN) and high gain (up to 75 dB), with +4 dB line inputs."
– Zoom Website
The kit comes with a carrying case for the recorder, XLR Cables, deadcat, Blimp windshield, and deadwombat. The recorder uses 8 AA battles.

I do have a boom pole, however its extension clamps do not tighten and as such do not hold without taping down (and therefore it's not listed).
The MXL 770 and Lyxpro Mic Shield are optional additions; they're useful if you need to do ADR/Narration recording.
