Varavon AM-ZEUS A7R2 PR overview

  • 1Description

The Zeus Premium Cage for Sony a7R II, a7S II, & a7 II from Varavon provides the added protection, stability, and accessory mounting options needed to prepare your Sony a7R II, a7S II, or a7 II camera for video production work. It features a walnut grip for handheld shooting as well as two adjustable handles that can rotate in 90° increments. The handles clamp onto a dovetail rail on the top of the cage or to dovetails found on the sides, providing a variety of configuration options. In addition, a handle can be clamped on each side to shoot in run-and-gun style.

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. In addition to 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes, a 15mm rod port is integrated into the handle that positions an optional rod above and perpendicular to the camera, which is useful for mounting an external monitor or EVF. For further accessory mounting, there are two cold shoe mounts on the handle and a third on the top right of the cage. Included with the cage are two cable clamps that screw into any of the 1/4"-20 threaded holes and help prevent connected cables from accidentally being pulled out while shooting.

    Zeus Premium Cage for Sony a7R II, a7S II, & a7 II is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Cage I love this cage, 1. It does the job however there are some issues but they can be worked out. 2. It looks great and also works as protector for your camera. issues: a. the locks are hard to tighten down. b. the wood grip is a bad design, it has sharp edges where your fingers would be and doesn't give you much room for large lens or lens adapters. The good thing is you can take it off when you don't need it. c. not many options to mount tripod plates under the cage. d. there is not much room for your fingers to get to the C1 and C2 buttons, this is annoying but if you program these buttons to something you don't need too often it will help. Other then then the few issues it is amazing cage, I love the size and feel of it. It is a awesome add on to my a7s II.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exceptional Product I bought this for use with my Sony A7SII camera. The build quality of this product is exceptional and I really like the wood accent at the front of the cage. The side handles work as described, but there is some rub on my wrist bone when I am attempting to press the shutter release. It's not a show stopper, but how the side handles turn in at the bottom are not a perfect fit for my hands. Additionally, the top of the cage makes it somewhat difficult to press the custom buttons on the top of the camera. These are not critically bad issues, but I wanted to write a review that could prove useful to those who were interested in button access when using a cage. Having said that, I'd make the purchase again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Honest Humble review I heard a lot of flack and negative reviews on this product. To be honest I think it is just nit-picking. first off i purchased this cage because it looked great i like the wood incorporated into the metal and it was in my budget. This cage is great! Like all thing there are pros and cons; I will walk you through mine. Pros: Light Feels great in the hand Easy to put together Versatile, you have a ton of options! Cons: The lens release button is a bit hard to get to The audio/ headphone latch is hard to open People really down played this cage and heard bad reviews about the handles not tightening, I don't know if people noticed but there are allen wrenched provided to tighten the hex screws with-in the handle, just tune your rig all rigs need tuning now and again. Great cage i would recommend and was a smart purchase with my gift card that B&H sent with my camera. Thanks B&H!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sony a7r II premium cage Very adaptive and high quality cage.
    Date published: 2015-11-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cage for protecting your investment. Mounts galore. The cage is clean, sexy, and has everything you could want in a cage. Definitely expensive, but I'm a firm believer in protecting your investment. The wooden handle is cool, but a little awkward and stays relatively loose. The machining on the body itself is very clean and adds some wow factor on shoots. I don't go handheld a ton but the second handle has helped (although I don't think it's worth the extra $60-70. 4.5/5 for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Love it!!! I use this cage for a variety of shooting applications. It has a great fit and a great feel. A bazillion holes drilled all over it let you customize till the cows come home. I removed the wood grip so I can change lenses and use my metabones adapter without removing the camera. You really don't need it with the 2 handle premium version anyway. I cant find anything I don't like about it. Super high quality piece of equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice with one complaint Works great on the a7sII. My only complaint is that it makes it hard to access and press the C1 & C2 buttons. In my workflow I'm used to using these buttons for zoom-focus assist and I'll have to rethink that now. All other camera functions are pretty accessible. It is hard to get the headphone/mic input door open as well, but once open you can access the connections.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price The cage has really helped give the camera some weight and stability. I come from using a Canon so the size of the cage replicated the feel and shape. The only downfall is if you want to take a side handle and more it to the top of the cage you need an alum key which I sometime forget to take with me.
