Adding protection, stability, and accessory mounting options, the Varavon Armor II a7S Standard Cage prepares your Sony a7S camera for video production work. For handheld shooting, a top handle in included, as well as a leather hand strap that attaches to the right side cage. With the camera in the cage, you still have access to the SD card slot, battery compartment, and all camera controls, so you won't have to waste time removing the camera from the cage during a shoot. The cage also leaves access open to the Multi-Interface Shoe for compatibility with accessories such as the Sony XLR-K1M adapter (sold separately).
The cage offers a variety of accessory mounting options. A 15mm rod port is integrated into the left side of the cage that is adjustable to position a rod in front or behind the camera. A 6" long rod is included. Positioning the rod in front of the camera is useful for mounting an optional follow focus, while having the rod behind the camera lets you mount an optional external battery, shoulder stock, or other accessory. In addition to the rod port on the side of the cage, there are also two rod ports on the top handle. One of the ports allows you to place 15mm rod centered above the lens, while the other lets you position a rod horizontally above the camera, useful for mounting an external monitor or EVF. For further accessory mounting, there are 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded hole on all sides of the cage. There are also 1/4"-20 threads on the top handle, as well as an included cold shoe mount that screws into the front of the handle.
For added convenience, the screws used to mount the camera, attach the top handle, and attach the cold shoe adapter are tightened in place using the same 4mm Allen wrench, which is safely stored into a slot on the side of the top handle. A 3mm Allen wrench is also included for other bolts on the cage and is stored on the other side of the top handle. For cable security, the left side of the cage features a built-in cable clamping system that helps prevents any connected cable from accidentally being pulled out while shooting.
