Designed for developers with special applications, our Modulus Sensor Housing provides protection and infinite lens mounting options for the GoPro Hero4 image sensor when removed from the camera. Use the included 12” sensor extension ribbon to place the image sensor away from the camera body. The sensor housing can be mounted on any standard 1/4”- 20 mounting point using the included mounting bracket. Two back plates are provided for maximum flexibility – with two sensor housings you can use alternate back plates to mount them directly back-to-back for the smallest amount of parallax possible. Sensors can also be mounted back-to-back with an offset of 90°: one sensor in landscape and the other in portrait orientation. This allows high frame rate shooting in 16:9 modes without losing the ability to stitch a full 4K resolution* 360° video with only two cameras. The module can be configured so that the ribbon connector comes out the back, top, bottom or right/left side. Bundle this housing with a Ribcage Mod Kit for maximum usability!

Designed with maximum flexibility in mind, our new aluminum Ribcage 3x mount will give you lots of options for your 360° spherical videos at a much lower cost. Ribcage Modified Hero4 cameras can be mounted in either vertical or horizontal orientation. When in vertical configuration (cameras on their sides) you can take advantage of all the shooting modes the cameras have to offer to achieve near 6K/30 or full 4K/60*. In addition, when in vertical configuration the battery compartment and all the buttons are easily accessible including the side button. The Ribcage 3x mounting bracket also supports our Modulus Sensor Housing which can be connected directly. The camera mounting plates can be connected to put the cameras in horizontal configuration, or they can be turned over so the camera bodies hang underneath when Modulus Sensor Housings are connected via our extended jumper. Stock (unmodified) GoPro Hero4 cameras can also be used** (vertical configuration only). The mount is compatible with both 1/4” – 20 and 3/8” – 16 tripod mounts.

Sample footage taken with our Ribcage 3X VR Mount. This mount is capable of holding three Ribcage Modified Hero4 cameras in either portrait or landscape orientations. When in portrait (sideways) orientation all the shooting modes on the camera can be used while still getting full spherical coverage. That means you can take advantage of the added resolution of 4K or increased frame rates. In addition the battery door, the ports and all buttons are easily accessible when in portrait configuration.

This footage was shot in 2.7K/60 which produces a stitched output greater than 4K. Shooting on 4K/30 will produce a stitched output of about 5800×2900. In this case the video was output at 4096 x 2048 @ 60fps
