View Factor Novo GoPro Hero 3 C-Mount Lens Adapter.


The folks over at View Factor are always coming out with tricked out toys. this time they have developed a C-Mount lens adapter for the new GoPro Hero 3 camera. Currently it will only be available as a kit for rental from Radiant Images here in Los Angeles. There is no mention of street availability or pricing just yet. Here is a rip from the VF blog post. Click here to check it out on the VF website.

The Novo has an adjustable back focus ring and can work with nearly any C-Mount lens. We have an internal CPU interfaced to the camera that allows us to enable/disable the auto exposure as well as provide digital zoom for checking critical focus. The buttons on the front are assignable to several functions depending on the application.

Radiant Images will have a package deal which includes the Novo, custom geared C-Mount lenses, and misc accessories.  We will have more information on that in the next couple weeks. You can also check out their site at
