Ninja Armor was created to help solve some issues when using the Amira Camera System. The buttons/knobs on both sides of the camera are very susceptible to damage and being rotated on accident possible changing camera settings. There was also a need for the ability to add accessories to the camera like, wireless video, wireless audio, microphones, monitors, and time-code boxes. By adding the two camera plates with a few screws, the Ninja Armor becomes part of the camera body. Add the optional "wings" and gain valuable surface area for adding camera accessories.
