Great cage for my GoPro hero 8

Fit like a glove and I'm very happy I made the purchase.

Exactly What I Was Looking For

I had been looking for an option to use regular camera lens filters with my GoPro 8. This not only me that requirement but also came along with some cold shoe options for a microphone, light, etc. The aluminum build is sturdy but not too bulky and the option of using the built-in GoPro connections or attach normally to any tripod was an added bonus. Will be picking up another one for my second GP8.

Looking for a case that would hold a mic jack, mic and my camera all-in-one. Found this one on amazon after doing some research. fits my GoPro 8 perfectly along with my mic equipment and tripod. Metal casing. Very happy with the choice I went with. Thanks for the product!

I like the Ulanzi G8-5 Aluminum Cage, except I cant mount a filter on the Cage. I have had 2 cages with the same issue. Maybe the 3rd will work. I purchased the Ulanzi G8-5 cage to be able to use filters and protect the lens.

Great Vlogging Cage!

The Ulanzi vlogging cage is perfect for attaching lense filters and an external mic and light with the cold shoes. My GoPro mic adapter sits nice and securely in the holder. Great Quality and very durable!

I love it dissipates heat well

Best frame!! No more to say as you can't beat it.

Beefy; and tight tolerances. Looking forward to a test.

Went together well... includes a cover that serves as a battery holder... maybe was included in the description but I missed that in my purchase. It's heavy so you will need a secure mount. Base can receive a 1/4 mount as well as GoPro mount.

Can this be used with the GoPro side door still on the camera to maintain the waterproofing? I know the mic couldn't be used, but mainly just using it as a protective metal housing.

Does the aluminum touch the camera? Will it act as a heat sink?
Asked by: Ronald
Yes, this is an aluminum cage which hugs around the camera. Any time you are using a cage it will help to disperse the heat the camera is creating throughout the cage.
