Pleaase note : I have no affiliation with Tilta. These cages/frame were purchased by myself and were not sent to me for review, nor have Tilta viewed any of the footage beforehand. All thoughts expressed are from my own experience.

Hope these give you a closer look at how these work, and whether the cages and frame are actually worth the cost for your uses!

Just to add - as much as it looks 'cool' and the marketing video makes it look awesome, most will never need the shock absorbing frame. It really is just for extreme vibration/high speed use - otherwise you will see no difference.
I would recommend you use RockSteady and EIS first - if you see any jello or micro-jitters in your footage, only then try the shock frame.

I guess the shock frame would help cushion a fall, apart from dealing with vibration.  Great videos, I'll finishing watching later (even though my frame doesn't fit...)

It would cushion a fall only if it landed on the frame of course......

If my camera fell, knowing my luck it would fall face first on it lens! lol

My "Action 1" fell 50 feet onto concrete in a cage - not a scratch.  The Insta360 Go 2 which was attached to the outside of the same cage was destroyed...

Which cage were you using for your Osmo Action?

Did anyone pick up the UV filter for general lens protection?
I'm wondering whether to bother?
I have a tempered glass screen protector, on the lens as well as both front and rear displays - as the lens filters are magnetic, I didn't want it flying off mid use with the odd bump or nudge......

I did - along with the cage which didn't fit - how well the filter would actually protect the lens in a real accident remains to be seen and would be highly dependent on exactly what happened - but I guess it might help a bit.  I could imagine that it might actually dissipate some kinetic energy by detaching from the camera.  Guesswork...   I've noticed some green flares in my videos since fitting it and perhaps they come from the filter.  I've not tested for that yet.

Anyone come up with an easier way to get the shock absorbing frame on/off?
Good idea in concept, but very fidgety....

Great Cage solution, but its expensive, and now there are other solutions available - just uploaded the SmallRig Cage review!
