Varavon VAMO-A7SCAGE Overview

The Armor a7S Cage from Varavon is designed specifically for the Sony a7S, providing added protection, stability, and 1/4"-20 threads on all sides for attaching accessories. The camera is secured inside the cage via a 1/4"-20 screw at the bottom and a hot shoe locking knob on top. With the camera in the cage, you still have access to all camera buttons, ports, and the battery compartment, so you won't have to remove the camera from the cage while on set. Additionally, the cage features a double cable clamp that prevents any connected cable from accidentally being pulled out.

For handheld shooting, the cage includes a top handle, as well as a leather hand strap that attaches on the right side. The top handle attaches into a cold shoe mount on top of the cage, screwing into threads available within the shoe mount. A detachable cold shoe mount is included which attaches to the front of the top handle, letting you attach an LED light, microphone, or other accessory. For mounting the cage to a wide range of tripods and support accessories, including Varzvon's optional rod mount baseplate, an Arca-Swiss type dovetail is provided on the bottom of the cage.

question

It appears that with this cage one cannot access the camera's hot shoe for use with the Sony XLR-K1M Adapter and Microphone. This renders the cage useless for video work with the A7S (which is what the camera is designed for). Is this right?
Asked by: Anonymous
This cage does block the camera's hot shoe, but that doesn't make it useless for video. It adds two cold shoes that work great for externally powered accessories. For instance, I use it with a battery-powered Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro mounted on the handle.

question

will this mount to a manfrotto quick release plate?
Asked by: matthew
The Armor cage is an Arca-Swiss Type Dovetail. You can cross reference your tripod for compatibility with that.
