Featuring three Back-Bone Gear Ribcage AIR Modified GoPro HERO4 Black Cameras, three super-wide 220° Fisheye Lenses, and a Ribcage 3x Mount, this B&H Kit provides the total package for capturing spherical VR footage.

The Ribcage 3x Mount will let you attach all three cameras in vertical or horizontal orientation and capture 360° videos. The 3X Mount is ideal for use particularly with the included 220° lenses.

The HERO4 Black shoots Ultra HD 4K resolution at 30/25/24 fps. After stitching, UHD 4K recordings will result in a final equirectangular resolution of 5800 x 2900, while 2.7K recordings (up to 60 fps) will result in a 4200 x 2100 resolution.

  • 3 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

    • 5 photos/1 second
    • 3 photos/1 second
    Video Time-Lapse
    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
    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
    Selectable FOV
    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
    Audio Acquisition
    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
    Underwater Housing
    The original GoPro HERO4 Standard Housing (131') is included. For waterproof use, it is recommended that you also source the BacPack backdoor for Standard Housing and use Back-Bone Gear's 7.5mm Low-Profile lens with M12 mount. Both of these items available separately

  • Back-Bone Gear Spherical Mount for Three Ribcage-Modified GoPro HERO4 Cameras
    This Ribcage 360° Mount from Back-Bone Gear offers multiple ways to mount three separately available GoPro HERO4 cameras for spherical video coverage. The mount supports Ribcage-modified HERO4s in both horizontal and vertical modes and also works with stock HERO4s (vertical mode only). When used vertically, the cameras' output can be stitched together in post to produce near-6K or full-4K video, depending on settings (separate editing system required). Fisheye lenses with at least a 185° field of view are required for 360° coverage with stock HERO4s (vertical mode).

    The mount can also be used with the Ribcage Modulus Sensor Housing and sensor extension ribbon to create custom rigs (recommended for advanced users only). Additional features include cable channels to help align the cameras' USB cables and standard 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting options.
