The Back-Bone Gear Ribcage AIR Modified GoPro HERO4 Black Panoramic Rig Kit from B&H is a ready-made solution for creating panoramic and spherical 360° video. The kit includes a pair of Ribcage AIR Modified GoPro HERO4 Black cameras, an Entaniya 220° Fisheye Lens for each camera, and an Entaniya Back-to-Back Panoramic Rig mounting plate. The plate, which positions the two fisheye-equipped cameras back-to-back, allows you to create 360° video using only two cameras, due to the ultra-wide FOV of the lenses. The video from each camera must be stitched together in post using separately available software. When used separately, each Ribcage AIR Modified GoPro is custom designed to work with the 3-axis gimbal on the 3DR Solo quadcopter with separately available M12 lenses weighing less than 0.4 ounces.
2 x Back-Bone Gear Ribcage AIR Modified GoPro HERO4 Black for 3DR Solo
Move beyond just wide and ultra-wide POV-style shots with the Ribcage AIR GoPro HERO4 Black from Back-Bone Gear. Based on a modified GoPro HERO4 Black, this action camera features an adaptable lens mounting system ready for use with M12, CS-Mount, and C-Mount lenses. With an accessory (available separately), it can also work with vintage Bolex and D-Mount movie camera lenses. The lens mounting system additionally enables the use of up to two on-camera filters of different sizes, such as NDs and custom wavelength-passing filters. For IR shooting, you can even remove the original IR cut filter. The camera has been designed with the 3DR Solo quadcopter in mind and will work with the Solo 3-axis gimbal when using M12 lenses weighing less than 0.4 ounces.
In the box you will find all of the original GoPro HERO4 Black accessories. The original GoPro HERO4 lens – suitably modified – is also included (other lenses available separately). As an added bonus, a custom GOcase clamshell is also included.
Note: M12 lenses under 0.4 ounces recommended for Solo and other GoPro gimbals. Back-Bone's 'DEAD WEIGHT' gimbal balancing kit for Solo (available separately) is recommended for best results and to reduce wear on the gimbal. CS- and C-Mount lens types are too heavy for GoPro-based gimbals. These are recommended only for larger platforms
Ribcage AIR Mods for 3DR Solo / Quadcopters
Custom All-Aluminum Housing
A standard GoPro HERO4 Black has been re-housed in aluminum frame for enhanced durability. The housing features an interchangeable lens mount for using movie camera, CCTV, and specialty lenses as well as on-camera filters. Benefits of these lenses include manual focus control, depth-of-field control, macro shooting, optical zoom, and iris control. In the box there is a removable tripod mount and for further versatility it can be paired with the EXO Mini Mounting Bracket (available separately)
Interchangable Lens Design
Frame the shot the way you visualized it with the aid of a plethora of lens choices. Out of the box, the Ribcage AIR HERO4 Black works with M12 (S-Mount), CS-Mount, and C-Mount lenses as well as accessories for them. With suitable adapters (available separately), you can also fit the camera with Bolex and D-Mount lenses. An adjustable flange distance ensures sharp backfocus no matter what lens system you use
Note: Lenses available separately. Only M12 lenses weighing less than 0.4 ounces should be used with GoPro gimbals. CS- and C-Mount lens types are too heavy for GoPro based gimbals
Use Custom Filters
You won't need filters for all your different lenses anymore, just for the camera. Now you can use ND, cold-mirror, NDVI, and other custom wavelength filters with your M12 lenses, or lenses that have no filter threads on the front. You can also remove the HERO4 Black's IR cut filter for IR shooting or use in the dark with IR illumination. Up to two filters can be used at a time
Note: The IR cut filter must be in place when using the camera for the first time
Removable Mounting Rings
All of the compatible lens mounting rings are removable for filter replacement and sensor cleaning
Custom Back-Bone GOcase
Back-Bone has teamed up with GOcase to create a special case just for the Ribcage. Carry your Ribcage or standard GoPro camera, lenses, and accessories in style. Featuring GOcase's QwikPik foam cube system and 4-layer construction, you can pluck individual cubes to create a custom fit inside the case
Removable accessory pouch
Water-resistant hard shell and waterproof zipper
Microsuede lining for protection from scratches
Includes carabiner, loop, and handle
Standard HERO4 Black Features
2x Faster Processor than HERO3+ Black Edition
The redesigned processor is twice as fast as the one in the HERO3+ Black Edition. This enables 4K30 recording as well as 2.7K recording at up to 60 fps, 1080p slow-motion recording at 120 fps, and 720p slow-motion at 240 fps
Note: Please ensure your camera is updated to the latest firmware to take advantage of all of these frame rates
Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Pair the HERO4 with a mobile device running the GoPro App or use the separately available Smart Remote. With the app, you can preview, playback, and share your favorite shots via email, text, Facebook, Instagram, and more. With the Smart Remote, it is possible to control up to 50 cameras from distances of up to 600' line-of-sight. The advantage of using Bluetooth instead of Wi-Fi – where supported – is reduced power consumption
GoPro App and Studio Software
Expand your GoPro experience with the free GoPro App and GoPro Studio software. The GoPro App allows you to control your camera remotely using your phone or tablet, view and share your content, and watch "best of" videos on the GoPro Channel. Use GoPro Studio to create your own engaging GoPro-style videos to share with the world
Up to 12-Megapixel Photos
While in the 12-megapixel photo mode, it is possible to record a high-speed burst at up 30 fps, helping you capture action stills at just the right moment. The following photo settings are available:
12MP (Default): Wide; 4000 x 3000
7MP: Wide, Medium; 3000 x 2250
5MP: Medium; 2560 x 1920
Simultaneous Video and Photo
Record video and capture Time Lapse photos at the same time. Available intervals are 5, 10, 30 and 60 seconds. The following settings are supported:
Rather than having to stitch together JPEG images in post, this mode automatically creates video from frames captured at set intervals. This mode is exclusively available in 4K and 2.7K 4:3 resolutions
Note: Please ensure you are updated to the latest firmware to use this feature
Night Photo and Night Lapse
Take photos at user-defined intervals to use in time-lapse videos. It is also possible to set an exposure time of up to 30 seconds per shot – whether in time-lapse or single shot – which is ideal for outdoor nighttime work. The following Night Lapse interval settings are available:
15, 20, 30, and 60 seconds
2, 5, 30, and 60 minutes
Protune for Photo and Video
Protune unlocks the camera's full potential, delivering minimally compressed video optimized for professional productions, with advanced manual controls for photos and video. Flex your creativity with customizable settings for color, ISO limit, white balance, sharpness and exposure. Protune is available for all video and photo resolutions
HiLight Tag enables you to mark key moments while recording so you can locate your favorite clips later for convenient playback, editing, or sharing using the GoPro App or GoPro Studio. Just press the dedicated button on the camera or Smart Remote, or use the GoPro App to tag your highlights
This mode turns the GoPro into a one-button camera, allowing you to power on and start recording automatically with the press of a single button. Press once to record video, press and hold for two seconds to capture Time Lapse photos
Three field of view settings are offered: Ultra Wide, Medium, and Narrow. These help you choose the preferred perspective, be it wide-angle and inclusive, medium for a bit of focus, or close-up
Note: Effective field of view will depend on the lens used
There is an internal mono mic, and it is possible to record from an external source using a separately available 3.5mm mic adapter. An integrated ADC (analog-to-digital converter) in the HERO4 Black enables compatibility with a wider variety of professional, low-sensitivity external mics for immersive stereo audio capture and enhanced performance – whether recording voices, an acoustic jam session, or a live show
Dedicated Settings Button
A single button provides direct access to the camera settings. In addition, the menu has been redesigned from the HERO3+ Edition to make navigation simpler
Record a continuous video loop that overwrites itself until you press the shutter button to stop it and save
Auto Low Light
Automatically adjusts the frame rate for optimal performance under low-light conditions

Entaniya Back-to-Back Panoramic Rig for Ribcage Modified GoPro Cameras
The Entaniya Back-to-Back Panoramic Rig is a simple plate specifically designed to mount two Back-Bone Ribcage Modified GoPro cameras equipped with Entaniya Fisheye lenses. It positions the cameras back-to-back with the lenses aligned along a center axis, letting you create panoramic and spherical 360° video by stitching together in post (using separately available software) the footage from both cameras. Being able to capture 360° video with just two cameras is made possible thanks to the ultra-wide FOV of the separately sold fisheye lenses. The plate is constructed out of duralumin and includes two sets of camera mounting screws.
2 x Entaniya 220° Fisheye Lens for Ribcage Modified GoPro
The Entaniya 220° Fisheye Lens is designed for use with Ribcage Modified GoPro cameras, delivering a 220° (horizontal) x 195° (vertical) angle of view on the GoPro's 1/2.3" sensor. By outfitting modified GoPro cameras with such a wide-angle lens, you are able to create 360° video and stills using fewer cameras, letting you reduce the size and complexity of your rig and simplify the stitching processes. The lens includes a CS mount adapter, IR cut filter, bolts, and an Allen wrench.
