The Ribcage Mod Kit is fully compatible with the excellent Hero3 & Hero3+ action cameras (Silver & Black editions) you know and love! Take your own camera and supercharge it with Back-bone’s custom all aluminum Ribcage mod kit. Now you can have the ability to pick the perfect lens for any situation. Once installed, the Ribcage will be 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 leave out the IR cut filter during installation so you can see in the dark with any IR light source! You can always install it at a later time. Have a difficult lens? Use the adjustable flange distance feature to get the perfect results.
Note: some M12 lenses require more distance from the sensor than the built-in M12 socket. We recommend also purchasing the optional M12 to CS adapter to guarantee compatibility with all your favorite lenses.

Please note that this product is not necessarily for everybody. It requires you to take apart and re-assemble your camera which will void the manufacturer’s warranty. Back-bone has no control over the end user’s skill level and cannot be held responsible for accidental damage. If you don’t feel comfortable performing the installation yourself, we also offer Hero3+ Black cameras that have already been modified and tested. Contact Onboard TV for price & availability.
