Back Bone has announced a face plate lens adapter for the GoPro Hero 3 camera. It looks like they have both C-Mount and Nikon mount adapters. This requires some minor surgery to the camera but should be well worth the effort. Finally we can use real glass on these puppies! Back Bone has no release date or price just yet. Here is a rip from the website. A Big THANKS! to @EricDiosay for the lead.

“After several prototypes and refinements here it is at last! We’ve taken our original concept and given it ultimate flexibility with several removable rings, which allow users to attach micro M12, CS-Mount, C-Mount and almost any other type of lens by using C-Mount adapters. For people who have stubborn lenses we’ve included an adjustable flange distance allowing users incredible control. The included tripod mount featuring our logo is removable. We’ll detail all the new features soon, but in the meantime please enjoy this gallery of images. Pre-orders will start very, very soon!”
