I’ve been looking forward to finding a suitable teleconverter for my camera packages, and at the same time, debating on the usability of my GoPro Hero 4 for the purposes of shooting stock footage. POV and action shots seem a little too personal for general stock purposes. Being a hobby tech-head as well, I’ve always enjoyed pushing my electronics to their limit and seeing what interesting things I can accomplish with them. I heard about the Back-Bone Ribcage Mod for GoPros and I became very interested in working with it. I already have a 180mm macro lens and the crop factor on the c-mount adapter/image sensor is roughly 5.7x meaning my 180mm lens became a 1026mm f/2.8 macro beast!
