Varavon has just released a new BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Cage w/ 15mm Rails. It's got all the features you'd need in a rig, including top handle and 15mm rail system. The red knobs seen at the front of the cage are used to 'clamp' cables in place from slipping out, such as the HDMI cable.

One unique option that I haven't seen with other #BMPCC Cages is the direct use of an LCD View Finder. In this image Varavon shows to what appears to be their Multifinder Uni Low Angle ViewFinder (though I can't be sure) attached directly to the BMPCC Cage. This ViewFinder will crop about 2mm on each side of your screen. You can already find the Varavon BMPCC Cage available via eBay (click here)

  1. I have both - Varavon BMPCC Multifinder and Armor Pocket Cage.

    The cage fits Multifinder and there is no loss of image, you just need to position it correctly - it means 5 minutes setup.

    when it comes to base clamp with rods... I have no idea how to mount it with Multifinder. Multifinder has bottom base that not allow to mount on base clamp (it has front edge).

    I will try to disassembly the base of Multifinder to fit it in between the base clamp but just for this moment - either base clamp either multifinder.

  2. I just picked up the movcam cage last week. So mad i found out about this today. The varavon looks so much lighter. Plus it comes with rails.

    @apostols - The red screws on the front are 'pinches' for cables. So far, i'm seeing really good quality cages for the BMPCC and all within similar price ranges. I guess it boils down to the specifics of what you want to mount.

    I like the Shape because it doesn't require any tools and is the lightest cage. It's also very quick to remove the BMPCC from the cage. Again, without carrying extra bits of tools. Maybe i'm lazy.

    The Tilta is great quality too, but does require you to have a two hex keys and a screw driver around. Unless you plan to leave your camera in cage and hope nothing comes loose, it's a solid rig as well.

    Check out the setup on each one:

    @Todd Covelli - Those are just icons showing which cable goes where, no pass through ports. It looks like it, but that's just a design.

    What are those input/outputs on the left side of the cage? Are they cable pass throughs or what?

    @Franny Lee - Just announced today. Maybe soon, but looks pretty good and priced similar to other cages. I read some fine print that their UNI View Finder will crop about 2mm on each side. So it's not designed specifically for this.
