Back-Bone’s newest innovation in camera modification
Ripcord image sensor extension technology: Take full advantage of the 4K resolution, frame rates and high quality of GoPro’s proven action cameras for your custom product builds. Our Ripcord technology allows you to remove the image sensor from the camera and place it up to 6 feet (2m) from the camera body in a small, light weight housing. Mount tiny high-res M12 lenses, CS & C-Mount or the original GoPro fisheye lens. You can even connect SLR and most other popular lens types if required.
There are an incredible number of use cases once the image sensor is removed from the camera body. The bulk and weight of the camera are removed from the area where the lens needs to be positioned. Now you can mount a lens directly between a person’s eyes while placing the camera body at the back of the head or in a waist pouch. Mount the camera in difficult areas like inside the tubing of a hockey goal or integrated into sports or motorcycle helmets. Car windshield mounted cameras take up much less room in the driver’s view. Multiple lenses can be placed where needed in a small space with the camera bodies centrally located for easier power and memory card management. You can build cameras into areas with thin walls and much more.
