Just want to share with the Forum a very interesting mod I did with a Go Pro 3 (or 3+).
Ever wonder what if millions of those Go-Pro out there could change their lenses? No more fixed aperture, curve or fisheye looking images.
I know there is a mod by Novo Camera a year ago but that system costs far too high and only few were made. Plus they only rent it out. Also for a cheap POV camera one would wonder why mod it in the first place and why spend crazy amount of money to do it. Well in the spirit of enterprise and human ingenuity there is always a way to do so cost effectively.
There is this start-up company called Back Bone (http://www.back-bone.ca/) and they make this kit that could completely transform your Go Pro 3 into an interchangeable lens camera using the M12, CS mount or C-mount system. They come in fully assembled camera based on Go Pro 3+(including the Go pro) or self-assemble kit. Being a glutton for punishment I opt for the kit. Actually I was on my way in becoming their dealer so I thought better try one out. My experience in this particular DIY is like walking on a cliff edge with a gammy leg and blind folded.
Here is a link to their installation video. Watch it and you know its not for the faith hearted to go D I Y.
I will post some of my picture in the next post
