Back-Bone Gear Ribcage overview

  • 1Description

The H5M12 Ribcage Modified GoPro HERO5 Black from Back-Bone Gear features the advanced GoPro HERO5 Black action camera professionally installed in a heavy-duty yet ultra-lightweight cage with a built-in M12 lens mount (also called S-mount). It allows you to significantly expand your shooting options with ultra-high-resolution M12 lenses, including Entaniya 220/250/280/360° lenses, sold separately. The camera also comes with the native HERO5 Black lens, which has been redesigned to attach to the M12-mount, so you have an ultra-wide angle lens to shoot with right out of the box.

The Ribcage Modified HERO5 Black is ideal for 360 video capture with compatible lenses. The image sensor remains in position at the rear of the camera for the lowest possible parallax when two cameras are placed back-to-back or in other multi-camera VR arrays.

Furthermore, the camera is designed to fit the Frame, the Karma Harness, as well as the Super Suit Dive Housing for the HERO5 Black. (Installation in the Dive Housing is dependent on the size and weight of the lens you use.)

The HERO5 Black itself is a sophisticated camera with many special features. It has a 12MP image sensor capable of capturing up to Ultra HD 4K resolution video at 30 fps and 12MP stills in bursts of up to 30 images a second. It can also capture raw still image files. Features include advanced wind-noise reduction, voice control, digital video stabilization, wide dynamic range, built-in GPS for location tagging, automatic upload to the cloud, and a Linear FOV selection for correction of fish-eye distortion.

Included with the Ribcage Modified camera is a custom Back-Bone GOcase, which is durable and offers all the right pockets for neatly carrying the camera, lenses, and accessories.

Note: This camera is not waterproof unless installed in the HERO5 Black Super Suit Dive Housing.

Video & Audio
Video Recording Modes
Select the desired resolution to fit your project. Record in UHD 4K resolution up to 30 fps or switch to lower resolutions such as 1080p and 720p for access to higher frame rates, more FOV (Field Of View) options, and electronic stabilization. In 2.7K widescreen and lower resolutions, for instance, narrower FOV options open up, including Medium, Narrow, and the new Linear mode (only available in 2.7K and 1080p settings), which corrects the lens's barrel distortion.

Auto/Manual Exposure
All video recording modes can be as simple or advanced as you want them to be. If you only want to ensure that a shot is captured, auto-exposure is at your disposal. For those who are shooting less off-the-cuff footage and want complete control, manual control of exposure is also available.

Audio for video is recorded using three microphones. In normal conditions, the HERO5 Black will process the audio for a stereo signal. If high winds start affecting the audio, the HERO5 Black can intuit which microphone is picking up the best sound and automatically switch to that microphone in real-time and filter out any excess wind noise. While the audio will only be in mono, you will know that you're getting the highest possible audio quality.
Photo Modes
Raw File Option
In addition to standard JPEG capture, the HERO5 Black can also capture raw images in the .GPR format. Raw images offer enthusiasts or professional photographers more flexibility after the photo is taken. Raw images can be processed after-the-fact for higher quality output.

WDR Mode
Bridging the gap between JPEG capture and raw, the WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) mode is also available. If the scene has dark shadows and bright highlights, WDR mode will retain better detail in those areas.

Burst Mode
Bursts of photos can be taken during high-action sequences to ensure that you capture the moment. The camera's buffer can fit up to 30 photos from a single burst, and burst durations can be set from six seconds to one second, effectively offering a 30 fps burst of 12MP photos.

Time-Lapse Mode
Record clouds floating by, traffic snaking through cityscapes, or stars and constellations tracing their way across the sky with the time-lapse mode. Set your interval from a picture every 1/2 second to every minute for different effects.

GoPro apps Capture and Quik allow you to access and edit your GoPro footage with simple to use yet powerful functions. There's also GoPro Plus, which lets you access your GoPro content on the cloud.
