Product Description

Small Package, Big Power!

A killer high resolution, high frame rate interchangeable lens camera that will take all popular lens types! This version of the camera has a built in screen, perfect for focusing and framing your shots. Designed with emphasis on widely available M12, CS-Mount and C-Mount our Hero4 design refines that of our popular Hero3 mod to give you even more great features. All of the lens mounting rings are easily removable for filter replacement and sensor cleaning. Combine up to two custom filters in camera at the same time.  You won’t need filters for all your lenses, just  for the camera! Now you can use ND and NDVI and other custom bandpass filters with your M12 lenses, or lenses that have no filter threads on the front. Choose from our line of tried and tested high resolution lenses, or use your own. Browse through our library of C-Mount lens adapters to find what you need!

The world’s most versatile camera just got better.

Finally, a light weight, small form factor camera with interchangeable lenses! It’s the GoPro Hero4 Black that you know and love, but supercharged with Back-bone’s custom all aluminum Ribcage kit. Now you have the ability to pick the perfect lens for any situation so you can shoot in amazing 2.7K 24fps or at buttery 1080p 60 fps. Out of the box the Ribcage is compatible with micro M12, CS-Mount and C-Mount lenses. You can attach virtually any other type of manual lens via readily available C-Mount adapters found online and in stores.  Take advantage of what professional lenses have to offer: manual focus control, a more cinematic depth of field, macro shooting, optical zoom and iris control. You’ll receive a removable tripod mount so you can connect your camera to professional mounts and supports. Want night vision? Just take out the IR cut filter so you can see in the dark with any IR light source! Have a difficult lens? Use the adjustable flange distance feature to get the perfect results. The Ribcage modified camera is configured with a removable IR-cut filter for maximum versatility and easy cleaning of the filter and sensor if required. Note that the filter must be added when using the camera for the first time.

Note: Some M12 lenses require more distance from the sensor than the built-in M12 socket allows. We recommend also purchasing our optional M12 to CS adapter to guarantee compatibility with all your favorite lenses. When using our 7.5mm M12 lens you can either remove the IR-Cut filter or reconfigure it with the supplied rubber O-ring to achieve proper focus.
