Varavon’s latest Armor II Implements 15mm Clamps into Cage Design


Varavon's latest Armor II Camera Cage takes a bold unique approach to mounting your video accessories. Around the cage system and top handle are a total of four (4) 15mm Clamps allowing you more options to attach a variety of accessories. Often mounting to a 15mm Rod is better than a variable friction arm that may spin loose from a 1/4" threaded mount, and then there is the benefits of speed assembling and disassembling rigs when using 15mm clamps.

The Varavon Armor II offers an anti-twist base when the camera is installed, HDMI and Audio Cable Locks, and an HDMI Cable Pinch. The Top handle provides several 1/4" threaded mounting points, a cold shoe mount, and (2) 15mm rod clamps. Around the cage you'll also find more than a dozen 1/4" and 3/8" threaded mounts.


Includes an HDMI adapter, Leather Handstrap, (1) 15mm Carbon Rod, and Chest Pad to be used as a shoulder stock for stability. The new Armor II cages will be available for select Canon, Panasonic, Sony, and Samsung cameras found at Varavon's website (click here).

    Does anything like this exist for the 7D / 60D?

    I have a cage for my 7D, but it's bulky. I've got nothing for my 60D.

    @Editwizard - Even if you can get the height, I don't think it could be pushed in far enough to fit flush against the back.

    Emm, do you think the P&C QV-1 LCD viewfinder QR plate would work as well as adjusting the finder up enough to account for the thickness of the cage bottom?

    @Joseph - I'm still 'trying' to use my BMCC 4K more too. The battery is what I hate the most though, and using a large v-mount just adds so much weight. Still I love the image I get from it. may be sending over a BlackMagic URSA for me to play with. Can't wait to try out that 4K 80fps.

  5. Hi Emm, they haven't put out a form fitting one. Generally most cages fit just about any dslr like the one I have. Lately they've been putting out form fitting cages for the Canon C cam's and the G4 and As7 but not the 5D3. This cage and the Cube have been the first I've seen. I beleive the form fitting adds a bit more I'm a video not stills camera as well as protection and it's more sexy. unfortunately I'm starting to use my BMCC 4k more and using my 5D3 for photo gigs, but I'm still leaning to pick this or the Cube up since I still use it for run and gun.

    @Gordon - The 5DM3 is slightly different than 5DM2 so things may not line up properly.

    @Joseph - Not true. Varavon has been making cages for the 5D for years, but they just continued to make an Armor II version because it's still a very popular camera.

  8. It's crazy how long the 5D3 has been out and there just starting to make form fitting cages for this camera. If you get a chance I would love to see a review on the CUBE 5D3 form fitting cage.
