In this video review, we are taking a look at the SmallRig vlogging cage for the DJI Osmo Action. This is the new updated version that is now fully compatible with the Cynova microphone adapter that DJI sells for the Osmo Action. SmallRig released the original cage back in the summer of this year and it by far was my favorite cage/frame for the Osmo Action. It was very customizable for adding different types of handle and accessories and like all SmallRig accessories it has a really nice build quality. In early fall DJI released the long-awaited Cynova microphone adapter for the Osmo Action and many consumers soon found out that the SmallRig frame, as well as many other 3rd Party cages, were not compatible with the adapter. The reason being is that the frames, for the most part, were to thick for the adapters USB-C port to make a good connection.
Soo after SmallRig designed a new cage for the Osmo Action, one that was compatible with the microphone adapter. They added two new cold shoes to the unit as well, one on the top and one on the side for adding accessories such as microphones and lights. This new cage works very well with the Cynova microphone adapter and is a nice upgrade for those looking to set up an Osmo Action vlogging rig. SmallRig continues to sell both models as they both are useful for different scenarios.
