8.25mm (47mm) f/3.0
GoPro Hero 12 Black (Ribcage H12PRO)




Meet the PeauPro41H12, a GoPro Hero 12 Black camera, converted into a Backbone Ribcage with a new all-glass 5K-sharp lens focused for infinity. You can easily adjust the focus by turning the lens. All accessories from the retail Backbone Ribcage box will be included.

The PeauPro41 captures 41 degrees in the horizontal FOV. That's a 3x optical zoom over the stock lens, yet it allows you to capture the full sensor, whether in 5K or 23MP photo mode. You can further zoom the field of view up to 6x compared to the stock lens. 

The optional internal filters will come separate and must be user installed (unless a note is left on the order requesting we install a particular filter). These filters are easily exchanged by unthreading the lens (mount) and tilting the camera so the filter falls out.

The optional PEAUPRO HD12 WATERPROOF (40M) HOUSING is a great way to keep your PeauPro H12 protected from moisture.

Shoot up to UHD 5K action video and use external lenses using this H12PRO Modified GoPro HERO12 Black Action Camera from Back-Bone Gear. The original lens on the GoPro HERO12 Black action camera is replaced with a C/CS-mount lens mount, so you can utilize lenses and adapters to use DSLR, vintage, or cine lenses. An included MFT mount allows you to use manual MFT mount lenses, and an M12 to C-mount adapter ring is also included to support M12 lenses with a back focus greater than 3.2mm.

As this is a modified GoPro HERO12 Black, it supports the HERO12's features but allows you to use different lenses, capturing up to 5K resolution while taking advantage of next-gen video stabilization, cloud connectivity, and an array of modes that help you get the best shot. The H12PRO also includes a tripod adapter, in addition to the original folding GoPro mount, which allows you to mount the camera directly on a tripod mounting screw. An optional Media mod allows the camera to output HDMI and utilize pro audio equipment (available separately).
