This B&H Kit pairs the Feiyu G4 QD 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal with a Back-Bone Gear Ribcage Modified GoPro HERO4 Black, allowing you to capture stabilized, free-floating footage at resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) video at 30 fps using interchangeable lenses. The motorized gimbal is held and operated using a single hand and features four different operating modes for increased creative possibilities. You can choose to lock the camera in place along all three axes (pan, tilt, and roll), or select modes where the camera will smoothly follow as you pan and tilt the handle. Switching between modes is done using a single LED push-button on the handle, which flashes to indicate the mode selected. The G4 is powered using two rechargeable 900mAh batteries, which slot into the handle. A battery indicator light on the device lets you know when it's time to recharge the batteries using the included charger.

The Back-Bone Gear Ribcage HERO4 Black has been modified with an aluminum face plate and removable lens mount system, turning it into a compact, interchangeable lens camera. You can now select the right lens for a given shot. The camera is compatible with widely available M12, CS-Mount, and C-Mount lenses, as well as other types of lenses via optional C-mount adapters. This lets you take advantage of all the benefits that professional lenses have to offer, including manual focus and iris control, macro shooting, increased depth-of-field, and optical zoom. The HERO4's original ultra-wide lens is included and has been modified for use on the Ribcage. Additionally, all accessories and cables originally supplied with the HERO4 Black are included, as well as a custom GOcase for storing and carrying the camera, optional lenses, and accessories.

In addition to 4K video, the HERO4 Black can record 2.7K video at up to 60 fps, and 1080p video at up to 120 fps for slow-motion playback. It can also take 12-megapixel still photos in single-shot or bursts up to 30 fps. The camera is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for pairing it with a mobile device or the separately available Wi-Fi Smart Remote. There is also a USB port for file transfer, charging, or to connect the separately available 3.5mm mic adapter.

    The Feiyu G4 QD 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal allows you to capture stabilized, free-floating shots with your GoPro or similarly sized action cameras that are between 1.3 and 1.8" tall.

The G4 is powered using two rechargeable 900mAh batteries, which slot into the handle.

  • Back-Bone Gear Ribcage Modified GoPro HERO4 Black

    Take your action camera footage to the next level with the Ribcage Modified GoPro HERO4 Black from Back-Bone Gear. This HERO4 Black has been modified with an aluminum face plate and removable lens mount system, turning it into a compact, interchangeable lens camera. You can now select the right lens for a given shot and capture 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) video at 30 fps, 2.7K video up to 60 fps, or 1080p video up to 120 fps.. The camera is compatible with widely available M12, CS-Mount, and C-Mount lenses, as well as other types of lenses via optional C-mount adapters. This lets you take advantage of all the benefits that professional lenses have to offer, including manual focus and iris control, macro shooting, increased depth-of-field, and optical zoom. The HERO4's original ultra-wide lens is included and has been modified for use on the Ribcage. Additionally, all accessories and cables originally supplied with the HERO4 Black are included, as well as a custom GOcase for storing and carrying the camera, optional lenses, and accessories.

    The modified camera comes with a removable tripod mount adapter so you can use it with professional mounts and supports. Additionally, you can use GoPro's optional The Frame mount to use the camera with GoPro-style mounting accessories. Also included are IR cut filters are which can be removed so you can see in the dark when shooting with any optional IR light source. You can even combine up to two custom 15mm filters simultaneously, such as the IR cut filter and an optional ND filter. By integrating a filter holder into the lens mount, you'll only need filters for the camera, not all of your individual lenses. For added convenience, all of the lens mounting rings are removable for easy filter replacement and sensor cleaning.

    For remote monitoring and operation, the camera is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, letting you pair it with a mobile device or the separately available Smart Remote. There is also a USB port for file transfer, charging, or to connect the optional 3.5mm mic adapter. In addition to included flat and adhesive mounts, the camera is also adaptable to a wide range of separately available mounts from GoPro and third-parties - with options to accommodate just about any scenario imaginable.

    Note: The HERO4's waterproof Standard Housing is included, as it comes with the original camera. For waterproof use with the modified HERO4, Back-Bone recommends using their 7.5mm Low Profile lens and GoPro's optional extended backdoor for the housing. 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.

    Ribcage Modification

    Key Features
    • M12 (S-Mount), CS-Mount, and C-Mount lenses compatibility
    • Adjustable flange distance
    • Removable 15mm IR-cut filters
    • Combine up to two different optional custom filters at the same time (filter spacer is removed to allows a second 15mm or 10mm filter to be used)
    • Use optional ND filters with most M12 lenses
    • Removable mounting rings for easy access to image sensor for cleaning
    • Compatible with the optional EXO Mini Mounting Bracket
    • Tripod mount adapter included
    • Mounting points for optional accessory bracket
    • Compatible with drones and GoPro Gimbals that lock on the GoPro and don't wrap around the GoPro lens (it is recommended that you use lightweight M12 lenses for gimbal and drone use)

    Note: Some M12 lenses require more distance from the sensor than the built-in M12 socket allows. Back-Bone recommends using their optional M12 to CS adapter to guarantee compatibility with most lenses. When using their 7.5mm M12 lens you can either remove the IR-cut filter or reconfigure the camera with the supplied rubber O-ring instead of the plastic spacer to achieve proper focus.
    Custom GOcase
    Back-Bone teamed up with GOcase to create a custom carrying case for the Ribcage Modified HERO4, optional lenses, and accessories.
    • Water-resistant hard shell
    • Waterproof zipper
    • Durable 4-layer construction
    • Microsuede lining for scratch-free protection
    • GOcase QwikPik foam interior for custom-fit storage
    • Removable pouch for accessory storage
    • Loop and handle
    • Carabiner included
