It's been a few days since our fun 'unboxing video, but now here's a little more in-depth look at the design and features of the new Varavon Zeus Cage for the Sony A7sII and Sony A7rII cameras.

The Varavon Zeus Cage is available with one handle (standard model), or two handles (premium model), and an extra handle can be purchased separately. Each handle has a modular design that allows it to rotate in 4 different directions, has two cold shoes built in, dozens of threaded mounting options, and incorporates a 15mm rod clamp.

The Zeus cage itself allows full access to all ports and doors and instead of dedicated HDMI or Audio cable locks, Varavon has designed a modular Cable Clamp that can be attached to any threaded mount on the cage or handles.

Today retailers have opened up official pre-orders for the new Sony A7sII Camera. This camera is more than a mere upgrade from the previous A7s now with 4K internal recording, new SLOG3 profile, 120FPS 1080p, better ISO in low light, and 5-Axis In Body Image Stabilization (IBIS) - just to name a few. For still photographers, it will also have 14 bit RAW. I'm pretty sure this camera will be a tough one to get your hands on after it sells out.
