Finally, a light weight, small form factor camera with interchangeable lenses! It’s the GoPro Hero3+ 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. 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. We recommend also purchasing our optional M12 to CS adapter to guarantee compatibility with all your favorite lenses.

For waterproof use we recommend picking up the extended backdoor for the case and to use our 7.5mm Low Profile lens. You can cut a piece of foam to fill the small space behind the camera, or put in the protective plastic cap that comes with the camera; it just so happens to be exactly the right thickness.
