Show a little backbone will ya

So this looks like a really cool mod for the GoPro. $200 USD to make a GoPro 3+ a cinema camera with "C" mount lens. Ohhhh Santa.....

Interesting. Here's the video that covers installation/conversion:

Bob I watched that video and realized the "mod" is more of a complete rebuild of the camera. Looks really cool but once done there seems to be no return to sport camera. I think I would still be interested but one mistake could spell doom for the camera.

Geez, what itsy, bitsy, teeny, tiny screws. Sure would need a steady hand.

Ya think that might void the warranty? :fg:
